Copy of Make a Cut Tied Back Summer Tank Top. Perfect for Camping

Hey! Today on Camp Dolliwatha I’m going to show you how to make a hiking stick!DSC_0862You will need:

  • Tape
  • Different colored paints
  • paintbrushes
  • scissors
  • A straight branch
  • glitter (optional)

(You don’t actually need a hot glue gun or ribbon I just thought I was going to add something else to the tutorial, but I didn’t so just ignore those)

First I used a knife to cut off the outside bark, though you don’t really need to do that, but if you do make sure to get an adult to help you. And then I painted over it with one color. (Keep in mind this color will only be partially visible in the end)

Next after the stick was dry I cut some tape in half and wrapped it around the stick in a patterned order.

Then after I had gone all the way down the stick with tape I painted over it again with a different color.

Next I cut some tape in a cool pattern and wrapped it around the stick, but you could stay with just stripes.

Then I painted it with a final layer of purple paint and glitter. But the glitter is optional.

Finally after everything had dried, I peeled off all the tape and then it was done!

Camp Dolliwatha: Make a Cute Summer Tank Top!

Hi! Today at camp I’m going to show you how to make a cute Tied Back Tank Top!

All you need is a sock and fabric scissors.

First cut your sock in half. It doesn’t really matter which end you use, but since this one has a cute bow at the top I used that end.

Next cut arm holes in the side of your shirt.

Then put the top on your doll and put her hair up out of the way and throw the draw strings over her shoulder.

Next I cut four lines on each side of the cut. But in the end I cut off the top one (that’s a little thicker than the others) and didn’t tie it.

Finally you need to start tying them together, until all of them are done up.

And you’re finished!

Now your doll can wear this to the beach or on a camping trip!

It’s super easy to make a lot of these if you just buy a bunch of cute inexpensive socks.
