This project is super cute, so unique and has a great tutorial. Look at what Sachiko from Tea Rose Home has been up to:
I have been wanting to get a child size mannequin for a long time. It may sound funny, but I thought it would be fun to display the clothes I made for Rachel in her room. Also, if I decided to do more open houses for Tea Rose Home, a mannequin would be a nice touch for the display. First of all, I never found one that I had in mind, the closest one was over hundred dollers. Umm… no thanks.
One day, I found this Torch stand at the clearance section in Target for $6.48(originally 12.99). The detailing is beautiful… I though, “What can I use this for?”… then, a light came in my head!
You will need:
One can of white spray paint(make sure that it is the kind that is made for metal and plastic)
Old blanket or Bath towels
Iron or wood decorative top
Glue gun, needle and thread
1. Put the wooden dowel into the torch stand and tighten the screw. Spray paint the whole thing.
The whole thing cost me about 17.00 dollars. If you already have a torch stand or even a wooden standing coat hanger, you can make this a lot cheaper (Ladies go hunt in your garage or basement!). Although it is not perfect I love how it turned out! Apparently, Rachel liked it too, she started bringing some clothes to put on the mannequin. She and I played dolls this morning, it was a lot of fun!
Isn’t is awesome? Thanks for sharing your creativity Sachiko!
From the giveaway, this prize would be perfect for playing dress up!
