This whimsy and doll is easy to make, with a few scraps of paper and of all things...a soap box! Adorn the top with a Frozen Charlotte head and watch her come to life before your eyes.
To begin, wrap the edges of a soap box with masking tape.
Next, adhere patterned papers hodge podge style with Mod Podge Medium. Cover the box with Mod Podge, then add the papers, then cover the papers with Mod Podge to seal.
Once dry, pierce a couple holes on the left and right sides of the box. String wire through the holes, and create a hanger above. String with beads, buttons ribbons, etc. for extra whimsy.
Hot glue a bit of tinsel garland, lace, or ribbon in a circle shape to top of box.
Tacky Glue (or other strong glue) the bottom of your dolly head to center of box top.
You can find Frozen Charlotte heads on EBay or Etsy. Just do a Google search for them!
