Loveseat for Barbie from Recycled Eyeglass Case and Pom-Poms

**Blog Announcement: Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate your time! Please note my Barbie posts will continue to be on my main blog Happier Than A Pig IMud. I hope you'll stop by and follow along there:@)

I love projects that recycle old items or things headed to the trash bin into new and useful ideas. And I think girls will get a kick out of this Love Seat from an Eyeglass Case and Pom-Poms! I had an old eyeglass case that had the spring on the back, you know, so it "flipped open" and stayed open. I gently bent the lid back a tad to make it more of a 90 degree angle. The inside of mine is a neutral peach color, so I left it as is. I also left the outside of the case black because I plan to revisit this idea again with a little more ~grown-up~ theme next time-stay tuned. I could see girls painting the case or covering it in colorful duct or washi tape.

My pom-poms are from Dollar Tree (I saw some eyeglass cases with springs there too). I just dumped the pom-poms into the cavity and patted them down a bit. Girls should spread some glue on the bottom of the case and glue the first layer in place. Then put a dab of glue on the bottom of each pom-pom for the next couple of layers and place them where needed. Dry thoroughly. Covering the back in pom-poms might be fun too... Just throwing that out there...
We need something to glue to the bottom for legs to add a little height to the couch. About 1 1/4 to 1 1/2" high would be ideal. Place the four legs closer to the ends/corners of the couch. *My legs are just to share this couch idea, not glued on, and are only about 1" tall. I used wooden candle holders from the craft store.

Oh, and if you happen to have an extra huge fluffy white pom-pom to add as a throw pillow... 
Well, what girl can resist throw pillows😉

  1. That's a fun love seat! I love recycling projects like these! How you did the legs is very clever, and the whole look is very cool and fun :-). I have such pompoms but only in black and white, it could be a seat in a night club scene or something :-).

  2. This is really cute! My mom and I used to make little Barbie accessories together. Like a stool out of a spool from thread with a cotton ball and some fabric. You brought back some fun memories! Thanks for sharing at Thursday Favorite Things!
