Hi everyone! My name is Kim and I blog over at seven thirty three, a creative blog full of kid’s crafts, free printables and so much more! I am so excited to be part of the Ribbon Retreat’s Blogger Competition. I’m going to be honest and let you all know that I had already had an idea in mind for my project, so when I received my box of Red, White and Blue goodies I sort of scratched my head because I wasn’t sure I would be able to make them work. But I’m not one to give up easily and I LOVE the end result: adorable Patriotic Wooden Spoon Dolls! And if my 7 year old is any indication, kids will love these as well. She put on several plays the night I made these and continued to play with them by herself for a solid hour.

First, draw some legs and shoes with a marker onto the backside of your spoon. Draw on a face and hair as well.

To make the skirt, cut four 2″x2″ pieces of tulle and place in a pile.

Place the pile of tulle on top of the ribbon and cut a small slit in the center of all 5 layers.

Slide the spoon through the slit.

Hot glue the skirt into place, bunching as you adhere it to the spoon so as to mimic a skirt.

Using ribbon, create a shirt by gluing it around the spoon.

Lastly, add on some hair using embroidery floss. I simply hot glued it to the back of the dolls head to secure it in place.

Aren’t these just the sweetest? I promise that you’re little one is going to have tons of fun playing with these miniature dolls!
