Make your Maplelea Doll Her own bath with items from the Dollar store!

As some of you may know I am the craft editor at Doll Diaries. I have a weekly craft post and my craft from yesterday was how to make your doll a bath tub using items from the dollar store. I thought I would share it here with you.
The best part is that because I live in Canada, the items I use in my crafts  should be available across Canada and priced in Canadian funds.
To see how I made this doll sized bath tub click here   you will be redirected to my post on Doll Diaries.
There are so many wonderful items in our local dollar stores that we can re purpose in to doll play items.
The planter I used to make the doll bath, the duck and the "crazer erasers" are all items I bought at my local dollar store and party store. The package above shows the perfect doll sized bottles of soap, bubble bath and perfume. I love the set that has the tooth brushes as the dolls both Maplelea and American Girl can hold the tooth brushes and each package contains two tooth brushes!

Even the "Shower cap" Saila is wearing is a bowl cover from the kitchen section of my local dollar store, a package of 10 is a wonderful addition to any doll play collection and doll themed loot bag!
The little plate that the other tooth brush and the tooth paste is on is a small sauce dish I got at Micheals the craft store for 29 cents last year. You can find small dishes like this in your local dollar store or kitchen shop for under $1.

I hope you enjoyed today's post and that you have fun creating items for your dolls.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at
