How can your dolls send mail without a mailbox? That’s exactly what I was thinking when I saw Grace’s cute little postcards. Well, making a doll mailbox was so easy that I just had to share the steps with you. I have been seeing the doll mailboxes on Pinterest and other boards. Every time I saw one I thought, oh yeah that’s cute. But I never thought to make one until I spotted the mailbox at Target! I walked into Target the other day and in the One Spot there they were. The perfect size for American Girl Dolls and they were only a dollar! Perfect size, perfect price! The only thing I needed to add was a stand. I used a candle stick that I had gotten from Hobby Lobby. I actually have several of these candle sticks from Hobby Lobby because they always seem to come in handy. I spray painted it red and glued it on to the mailbox. That’s it! Simple and cute!
Crazy enough, the first time I spotted the mailboxes at Target the bin was full. I went in today to grab a few more, and they were ALL GONE! I thought to myself, hum, there must be a lot of doll lovers in my area! What else could you use them for?
I got a standard looking mailbox, but they had several colors to choose from. Pink, red, purple. I actually love how mine turned out, the bright red seems to be a favorite of Grace’s! Stay tuned, I want to make some postcards! If you have done this project or made a different mailbox, leave a comment and share with us. I love to hear different ideas!
