A dollhouse bathroom isn’t complete without a hair dryer! So, of course I think the best way to add one to your collection is to craft it yourself. It’s almost Christmas time so there are so many fun little wooden ornaments at the craft stores. The reason I like the wooden ones are because they are a blank slate. You can turn them into anything you want! And that’s exactly what I did.
Don’t worry, if you are reading this and Christmas ornaments are not in stores at the time, you can always use alternatives! I just used the snowman because I like that his hat looks like a diffuser. However, you can also make an American Girl Hair Dryer from a wooden birdie which are available all year long!
- Wooden Snowman
- Wooden Dowel
- Ribbon , string, or plastic lacing cord (I used this<<)
- Mini Wooden Spools
- Sanding Block
- Paint & Brushes
These instructions are for the snowman hair dryer.
Take the little hook off the ornament & put spackle in the hole.
Drill a hole in the snowman and in a wooden spool. This is where a wooden dowel will conned the two.
Cut your wooden dowel the size you want for the connecting handle. Then place wood glue on both ends before connecting the snowman and spool.
Paint the American Girl Hair Dryer the color of your choice.
Once the paint is dry, take the plastic lace and cut it for the cord. Tie a knot at the end and glue the opposite end in the tiny hole in the spool.
