Doll Wheelchair

IMG_0917

When I was putting up ornaments on our Christmas tree, I came across a little porcelain Dorothy ornament my grandparents got me when I was little. The poor thing went through a TON of rough play…

There’s one arm that’s not even attached and almost waiting to come out of the curved sleeve. Both legs are off too. I couldn’t hang her on the tree looking like that! Then I thought of making a wheelchair! This craft is very useful and can be moderated for any doll. Lets start!

Supplies:

cardboard

paint

scissors

& glue gun

Take a piece of cardboard and cut it two times the length of your doll’s back.

Then cut the piece in half. Now you should have two equal length pieces.

Cut two skinny pieces that are the same length as the cardboard we just cut.

Cut two pieces that are up to your doll’s elbow when she’s sitting up.

Glue the pieces together, your chair should look like the one above.

Cut four sets of two wheels, you should glue two wheels together for extra sturdiness.

Glue the wheels to the bottom.

Attach a handle so the wheelchair can be “pushed”.

Paint the chair and wait for it to dry. Then put your doll in. I wrapped mine in a piece of fleece.

My chair is too small for Lottie. It’s also too big for Disney Sofia the First mini-dolls

Though it’s perfect for her friend, the scarecrow!
