American Girl Doll Bouquet Bed DIY

American Girl Doll Bouquet Bed DIY

A few years ago we made the American Girl Bouquet Bed and Night Stand plans to make out of wood. We have been doing so many foam board projects lately and because of that there have been a lot of requests to remake this bed using foam board. With a few adjustments from the previous plans, it is now modified so you can craft it using foam board. I can’t stress enough how the FoamWerks tools are key when crafting. The handles make it easy to grip and cut for a straight edge. I even use several of the tools for small projects. The circle cutters are one of my favorite things from the Deluxe Kit. If you want to start simple, try out the Straight Cutter. You can find the tools on Amazon, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels. If you have already purchased the FoamWerks tools, please leave a comment below and share your experience.

*Sometimes foam board is not always exact. You may have to make a few slight adjustments.

    Hi Lilliana, I watch eBay and the FB AG selling page for doll stuff, the iron bed you are looking for is currently on eBay , there are a few of them that start at 15 and go up, might be a place to have your parents look for you!! Also, here in Utah we have a site called KSL.com, if you go there and click on classifieds, then select search, type in American girl, tons of stuff on there all the time for good prices!! Someone currently has the bed listed, even though it’s a local site, people here are super sweet and I’m sure they would ship to you, if not, I would be happy to pay for it and pick it up and send to you!! Good luck kiddo!!

    This is cute. My older brother made me a bunk bed for my dolls last Christmas, and I only have two dolls, and I want this too!! MAN!!
    Question, Can you get Rebecca’s whole collection, and make her iron bed? I want it, I have Rebecca and Grace, but it is kinda expensive, so, yeah, um… Could you?
    If you have Rebecca, please tell me.
    THANKS

    I’m going to second Rudy on the Foamwerks tools, I use them DAILY!! Love my deluxe set, definitely well worth the investment, and that’s how I see it, a great crafting investment! I bought mine off Amazon on one of there prime days. If you are a member you get 25 percent off and free shipping. I can’t stress enough how much easier the projects are to do, less waste, time cutting in half, they are just amazing!! Takes a little to get used to them and know how to use them. I recommend using some scrap board to practice on also. The set comes with a book of some great ideas as well.
