If you happen to love dolls as much as I do, you’re going to want to dress them up in all of the latest fashions. But buying these clothes from the toy store or hobby store can get really expensive. In fact, it’s often so expensive that the average person just cannot afford to dress their dolls up the way that they want to. This is a sad situation for many moms and girls looking to have a fun time together dressing up their dolls.
Guess what? There is an alternative to this situation if you are willing to make doll clothes yourselves. DIY doll clothes are all the rage right now. As a matter of fact, there are websites and YouTube channels completely dedicated to showing you how to make amazing clothes and accessories right from the comfort of your own home.
And the best part about all of this? It’s very easy to make these clothes without having to learn how to sew. You do not have to buy expensive materials. And if you really play your cards right, you’ll be able to find things lying around your house that you can use to make amazing clothes for all of your many dolls.

· DIY Doll Ear Muffs – we truly love these ear muffs because they look amazing and they are really easy to make. To make these ear muffs, you only need to have a few items that are usually easy to find lying around your home. You need cotton balls, a wire paperclip, a paperclip with colored plastic around it, glue, and old slinky, colored beads, and that’s about it. This is one amazing way to make DIY accessories for your dolls, and you’re really going to love the way that they look when your dolls wear them.
· DIY Cute Doll Puppies – have you ever wanted your doll to have a furry little friend, but they either don’t sell them or they are too expensive for your budget? Now you can create your very own cute doll puppy – and if you’re feeling really outrageous and adventurous – you can create more than one of your own. Heck, you can create a puppy for every one of your dolls if you feel like doing so. The great thing about this DIY project is that it doesn’t require too many items to make it work. You need cotton balls, beads, pink and black card stock, felt, chalk pastels or makeup, scissors, a paintbrush, and glue. Again, it’s highly likely that you’ll be able to find all of the items needed to make these incredibly cute puppies without having to buy anything additional. They are all common household items that you can often find right in your home.
