How to make Doll Crutches

How to make Doll Crutches

Last week we made a really cool DIY cast for your dolls. Not long after hundreds of requests came in for crutches! There were so many requests that we couldn’t possibly give everyone a proper shout out, but we do thank everyone who requested this craft! I think it’s a fun one! ย You might possibly need help cutting the dowels. If you are using an X-Acto knife it will take a little bit but it does work. And any rough edges you can sand down.

Materials Needed:

  • Wooden Dowels *per crutch
    • 2- 4″
    • 2- 3″
    • 2- 2″
    • 2- 1.5″
    • 2- 7″
  • 2 Mini Corks
  • Hot Glue
  • Brads
  • Craft Paint
  • Craft Foam
  • Parchment Paper

Watch and tell us why your doll needs crutches!
