DIY American Girl Toaster
You might have already guessed that we were planing on doing a DIY American Girl Toaster from the teaser photos in the Pop Tarts video. Well, we hope you and your dolls love the one we made. Crazy fact, We have never owned a toaster. Growing up my mom did not like anything to be on the counter (which now I understand, love and I have followed her madness) So a toaster was out. Bringing out a toaster and putting it up every time could get messy on regular basis with all the crumbs, so we just learned how to use the small oven. So, we had to do a little research on this craft to see what style we should make. I think we ended up with a pretty basic model that everyone will recognize.
What else do you like to toast besides bread and Pop Tarts? Maybe we can craft more for this toaster!
- Craft Foam
- Reflective Card Stock
- Hot Glue
- The thicker the craft foam, the better. We used a 5mm from Hobby Lobby. Michaels also sells a 6mm which would also be perfect. If you don’t have a thicker one, the thin will work, you will just have to layer up. Remember that you want it thicker than the pop tarts so they fit in the slots.
- We went for a stainless steel look, but you can make your toaster any color to match your dolls kitchen. I’m thinking a blue one would be great for Grace to match her mixer! Whatever color or design you choose, just remember that a card stock will be best because it gives it the smooth look.
- For the darkness adjuster we used a button that you see in the video, and then put a dowel cap on top of it. It’s the same one we used in our DIY American Girl EOS craft.
