How is your newborn baby supposed to get home from the hospital without a car seat? I think this quick craft is adorable! Let’s get started!
You will need:
- a cereal or oatmeal box
- duct tape
- and an Exacto Knife
Start by finding a cereal/oatmeal box that the baby can fit in comfortably.
Cut the top and sides down to fit the baby.
Save your scraps! Make a handle.
With some other scraps, I made this base that the car seat can fit into so when taking the baby out of the car, you can also bring the car seat.
Now add duct tape! I ran out of mine and had to use owl print tape.
Since I was running low, I only put duct tape on the sides and corners, but I really like this look.
Next, I used some ribbon to make the seatbelt. Make sure it isn’t too long or too short. I taped the bottom so the ribbon could go in separate directions easily.
I used an Exacto Knife to make a cut in the bottom and two on the top. Pull the ribbons through.
I attached the cardboard base with some tape so that the car seat won’t move when placed inside.
I hope you enjoyed making this car seat for your dolls. This was one of my favorite crafts that I’ve done!
Have fun with your doll!
