I know of several people who have used their dolls as part of their holiday decor but I just recently started leaving stuff out this year, more specifically after I bought Grace’s cart:
I had intended to do a fall display with the city market set but I just never got around to it. There’s always next year! However, I did manage to get one done for Christmas. I decided to use the Our Generation Hot Chocolate stand.
I dug around in my doll sized Christmas decor and pulled out several things I thought would work:
I knew I was going to have to play around with some of the stuff a bit. I used double sided sticky dots to hold things in place. They worked well although they periodically just decide to let go here and there, it is bizarre!!
I put stuff on each end.
And a wreath on the front. However, the wreath fell off, so I had to change things around a bit! After a lot of messing around, I finally ended up with things the way I wanted them.
Marie Grace is all ready to sell hot chocolate in her festive outfit!
After changing things around, this is what I ended up with. I had to cover up the 3M hanger, the little sled worked well for that purpose!
“What can I get for you?”
This is in my living room on top of a small bookcase we have. Beside it you can see my lone venture into being crafty this holiday season, I wasn’t feeling much into it, but saw something similar to this and realized I had the perfect picture frame in my stash to make it with. Once in a while being a pack rat pays off!
Do you include your dolls in your holiday decor? And if you do, what have you done? I kind of designated this spot in my living room as a nice place to permanently have something. I suppose I should start thinking of ideas for upcoming holidays! It’s a shame I don’t still have my big old buffet in my dining room, I could use the surf van to do a summer display…or maybe that is taking it a bit too far??
