Serving Tray from Recycled Bottom of Shampoo Bottle

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

Barbie says it's entertaining season folks, with football parties, big family dinners and the holidays coming up... This Serving Tray from the Bottom of a Shampoo Bottle is a super simple ~free~ way to add a platter to your doll's kitchen accessories. Whether full of chips and dip, corn on the cob for a crowd or holding a round of drinks... Every well stocked kitchen, and hostess, should have a few serving trays!

And the whole project took all of about 10 minutes-I like that in a project😉

Um... As you can tell from her arms, this Barbie really needs to eat a couple of those hamburgers!

Another fun food prop idea, buttons...
Both the fish on the grill above and grapes on the platter are buttons.

What I did:
I started with an empty shampoo bottle:

Cut the bottom off and washed it well:

 Then trimmed it as neatly and evenly as possible. I used these cutters:
If you don't have a pair they really come in handy!

Make something just for fun-
 and Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone!

  1. The tray is nice, and nothing can fall off :-). And I would never have thought of buttons, but it looks great! I see often such buttons for sale, but now I'm going to pay closer attention. The corn is awesome :-)!

    1. Ha, ha, I had to get the corn for my other blog:@)

  2. The button food is so cute and clever!!

  3. Make something just for fun....that's my new motto! And I wondered how I got my nice soft arms....too many hamburgers! heeheehee!

  4. Oh, you are so clever! Look at you making treasures out of trash. :) Thanks for sharing with SYC.
