American Girl Coffee Pot
Part 8 of the American Girl Diner series is ready! I feel like every diner needs a coffee pot regardless if you are a coffee drinker or not. The look just isn’t complete without the waitress holding and serving coffee! Don’t you think so? From the research I did it looks like diner coffee pots looked a little different than the one I made and the one from the OG diner. They were taller and all metal? If you are familiar with a 50’s coffee pot, leave a comment and tell us. I have already made a few mistakes on 50’s items due to not really knowing! It’s okay though, I really like the look of this one. And it’s SO EASY! Also, my coffee pot is a little bigger than the OG one, but I have always thought theirs was too small anyways. See the size difference below.

Part 8: American Girl Coffee Pot
- Hot Glue Gun
- Empty Acorn Capsule (AKA Vending Machine Capsule or Plastic Quarter Machine Capsule)
- Water Bottle Cap
- Recycled Paperboard (Very small piece)
- Craft Paint and/or Spray Paint
- I used an acorn capsule because I really likes the shape and size it gave me for the coffee pot. However, my first option was a clear round Christmas ornament. It will work basically the same way except you will need to put a weight on the bottom to hold it straight and to keep it from tipping. Also, instead of painting the coffee from the bottom in, you will “pour” the coffee in from the little top opening. I suggest mixing the paint with a glue like Mod Podge for a quick dry and to assure it sticks to the sides.
- Fail moment. I first used a piece of clear plastic for the lip of the coffee pot. Haha, that melted right away from the hot glue gun! Duh. So I used the recycled paperboard instead. I love the result! You could substitute this with card stock also!
