U is for Umbrella

It has been raining heavily in Zhuhai and we have been unable to go out much as it doesn’t just pour – the wind is strong, too.

And it is just timely that today I am again posting for A-Z of Busy Bags hosted by Teach Me Mommy. My letter is letter U: U is for Umbrella. And I am going to share with you how to make DIY Umbrellas for dolls!

We have been working on decluttering and detoying the house, so we have kept several dolls and soft toys that all three kids like to play with. However, we often run out of accessories and we try to come up with DIY dresses and such for them.

What could be better than making simple umbrellas to “protect” your dollies from the sun and the rain?

What you will need:

Double-sided tape

Straws with bendable tips (we had to cut ours a little)

Cupcake liners

Umbrella (3)

How to make the umbrellas:

1. Start by tearing a small piece of double sided tape and sticking it to the top of the straw. Tear the protective layer off.

2. Flatten your cupcake liner

3. Now, make 3 folds that will allow your liner resemble a con.

4. Stick it on top of the straw – voila, you have your umbrella!

Now, you can play with your dollies and soft toys by giving them umbrellas!
