Friday: Dollhouse Accessory DIY … Pass and Fail

Hello Friends and Happy Friday from wherever you are! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you stay awhile and consider subscribing.

If you’re part of the family…then Welcome Back! How are you today?

Hi Friends!  How is everyone doing? I know that everything you’ve been hearing throughout the weeks is daunting but just hold on.  God’s got you.  

This almost didn’t happen…

Ok so you know how you see something simple and you think … dang I can do that.  That was me, watching YouTube, and checking out a DIY to make room accessories.  I wanted to make little baskets for the diorama, for decoration, and for storage.

This DIY only required twine and hot glue, so I though … yas I can do this.  I got everything out.  Took my header picture, and I was ready to roll. This is what I tried to make.

I started gluing, and wrapping the twine, and getting burned, and more gluing until it was a big ole mess.

Where did I go wrong, who knows but ok … new plan.  I figured I could still make these mini-baskets but I would crochet them instead.  I haven’t crocheted in a few years so some of that technique has left my brain.  Thus, I was off to YouTube “again” to reacquaint myself with this pattern.

Here’s What I did!

I didn’t include a step by step (which is what I usually do) because I’m no crochet expert.  I will include the YouTube (GratiaProject … How to Crochet a mini-basket) and website link that I used for this pattern. I took a mix of that pattern, and what I remembered on how to make a basket.

If you want to see the entire diorama process head on over to The Dollplace Project to see how I started my little house.

What projects are you working on to ease your stress?  Share them in the comments!

With that, I’ll end my post today.  I hope everyone has had a great week, stay safe amongst the chaos.  Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe …  have a great weekend. — Peace —
