So adorable! Tutorial for a cut and dress up doll by TwoPlusCute

Make an adorable, cut & dress-up, unisex doll, that stands on its own (and is sturdy enough to hold actual jewelry), using a pizza box.

Do you remember those dress up dolls we were cutting off of paper and had all sorts of cute outfits? They were pretty and elaborately designed but were not very sturdy and consequently, they didn’t last long. I made a much sturdier and larger version for The Cute – and didn’t cost a thing!

Read on for the tutorial, plus 6 ideas for learning activities using this cute dress up doll.

How to DIY a mole-proof, raised garden bed, using cedar.

I am a fan of homesteading and since I visited the community gardens where hubby with some friends from work had a plot, I wanted to make a raised bed to garden organically in our yard.

DIY accent wall with electrical tape by TwoPlusCute

 

This was THE easiest DIY, ever. And the fastest. And renter friendly. And super ultra cheap. Did I mention easy?

I told you how I painted the final living room – our accent wallhere. Well, even though I went a tone or two darker than the rest of the walls, it was simply, plain. Too plain.

Ain’t plain anymore and the best part is, I can change it anytime I want.

And it looks pretty good.

How to use a caulking gun and how to caulk new windows TwoPlusCute

We are finishing up the new window of the nursery, now that we fixed the missing drip cap. Once a window is installed, the next step is to seal it properly. And the next-next step is to tackle the rest of our non-closing, non-opening, old windows.

Especially the one I caved in with my thumb. Long story but it was so rotten I pushed through the wood, with just my finger…

In this post however, we are sharing how and where to caulk the interior of newly installed windows.

We will also demonstrate a caulking gun (a good caulking gun – mom pay attention!) and how to use it. There is a LOT of information in this post so get the beverage of your choice and read on!
