Decorating the Doll House

Yesterday for our advent activity we decorated the doll house.

We made a Christmas blanket for the bed.

I was going to whip up a blanket on the sewing machine
but Bailey wanted to stitch it by hand.

She worked diligently
and said (more than once)
"I can tell my friends I made it myself!"

Oh, she is so my daughter.

Now Cinderella Barbie is Warm.

We also made a pipe cleaner tree.
It was a simple project but
it did take quite a while just to do the tree

Which of course then needed to be decorated.

We made candy canes and garland and
little teeny tiny ornaments from beads.
Bailey made the star all by herself
(I tried. She rocked.)

We added a few other things-
a little wreath, garland, and a few other odd decorations.
Bailey is using the presents
and having fun with the new theme.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I wish I was as talented as your daughter.

  2. I am now a little depressed, since Bailey's doll house is decorated more for the holidays then my real house is!

  3. I think my daugther would love a little project like that! Sometimes you don't know what they are capable of until you let them try ;) Thanks for the inspiration!
