Are your dolls celebrating Dolloween? I love the above Panda costume idea from Many Small Friends. Doesn’t she just look like she’s ready?
Don’t forget last year’s post with more ideas! (And the second post last year)
As always, if you find a broken link, please let me know and if you find more cool links, let all of us know and post below (especially if it’s YOUR site!)!
In honor of Dolloween, here are some costumed favorites that I’ve altered in some fun old frames that you can print out for your Dolloween decorations!
All photos have been altered. Original photo sources: frames, Anna and Elsa, Felicity, Annie (taken from pinterest but traced to this site), Julies are from Gallery Hip.com, Cat, Jordanna sporting an outfit from The Queen’s Treasures.
If you want to try this yourself, all I used was Word 7. Copy one of the original framed images into Word. Paste your doll photo after it. While highlighting your doll image, under the Format tab, select Recolor in the Adjust section (left section) and select the sepia looking palette (or another fun one). You can then use the Picture Shape option under the Picture Styles section (middle section) choosing an oval or rounded rectangle as appropriate. Then right click on your image and under Text Wrapping select In Front of Text. Your doll picture will then float over your frame picture. Resize or crop (or both!) it to fit. What I did next was take a print screen (at 200%) of the completed image from the print preview in Word. I then pasted that into Paint and cropped and saved it from there ad a jpg file to have one permanently joined image.
This would be an excellent craft for upcoming holiday cards. You can Google “framed old photographs” to find more examples of frames.
Can’t get enough of Dolloween? Me either!
A few more Dolloween crafts …
I can’t think of costumes without thinking of cosplay – that’s right, it’s time for Dollie Who. Sadly, this is an underrepresented market of creativity so I might have to work on that (because I know I’m not the only AG/Who crossplayer out there!).
Here’s what I could find. This list does include the pjs for purchase but they’re so perfect, I hope you’ll forgive me for it not being a pattern. (How do I not have a free pj pattern link yet?)
Every dollie needs her own Who poster too so why not print out this image for her? (Plenty on Google if you have another favourite doctor).
Lest we forget Dolloween entirely, here are some more decorating ideas recently posted on other blogs in case you missed them:
One more week to Trick or Treat!
Love you all, Dollings!
Dolloween is approaching fast!
Get ready with these fun costumes and accessories! (more to post on Friday)
