DIY Pipe Cleaner Puppy for Barbie

Anyone surprised that Barbie would have a cute little lap dog... anyone??? I didn't think so... I've wanted a little pet for Barbie for a while and noticed these Pipe Cleaner Dogs while nosing around crafts on Pinterest one day. Had to stop everything and immediately make one! It took all of about 10 minutes and he turned out sweet. I could see a whole litter in all different colors.

 It only takes 2 1/2 pipe cleaners and three beads. The hardest part is pushing the beads onto the pipe cleaner. 
(Be sure to test this ahead of time if this is a kid's project. My smallest beads wouldn't fit onto the pipe cleaner.)
They are totally poseable, vary by how long you make the snout, ears and tail, and most importantly... are housebrokenšŸ˜‰
 I couldn't add anything to the incredible instructional YouTube video HERE
Watch it once and you'll know you (or your daughter or granddaughter) can do this too!

~Make something just for fun and have a happy day~
