American Girl Grill
With summer in full bloom (at least where I’m at) it is time to start thinking about backyard barbecues! That’s why the recent posts of napkins, paper plates, and solo cups were so important to us. We were preparing for a party! We still have several items on the list that we will be making to actually complete our party scene, but the key pieces are done. And of course we can’t grill out unless we have a grill to cook on right?!
The American Girl grill was simple to make, but it did take patience as there was a lot of glueing and painting small pieces so I had to wait for things to dry before I could move on to the next part. Then of course there was choosing the right color for the grill. I really wanted to do an all over black, but my DD insisted on the stainless steel. I did a vote on FB and votes were well mixed so it came down to letting my daughter get her way. I think she made a great choice!

It would be difficult to explain everything in text, so watching the video is best to see the construction of this project!
***I said toothpicks in the video. WHOOPS! You know I mean popsicle sticks! Don’t try to use toothpicks, hehe, they will be too small!***
