Barbie Baby Sled from Dollar Tree Recycled Tide Bottle -DIY Quick Craft

I love the perky yellow color Tide uses for it's bottles and the small ones at Dollar Tree are the perfect size and shape to make an Easy Sled for a Barbie Baby or Small Toddler Doll! This project can literally be completed in less than 30 minutes and that includes washing and drying the bottle. A perfect craft for a cold winter day.

Look at the great shape, the bottle is even narrower for the front of the sled.

This project only requires three items, an empty bottle, something for a pull rope and some hot glue. 

He looks pretty cozy and happy to me! 

Baby Sled Directions:
Cut the bottom off of the Tide bottle with sturdy scissors, make it about 2" tall.
Wash well and dry thoroughly.
Cut the back straight across (the wider end of the bottle). Mine is about 1 3/4" tall. The nice thing about this bottle is it has two creases so you can gauge exactly what the back would be, you'll see😊
Then cut the sides down on an angle, but not all the way to the bottom. Leave at least 1/2" of the bottom of the bottle showing.

Lastly, Barbie needs something to pull the sled with. 
Use about 2' of ribbon, cording, elastic, yarn, etc.
I hot glued it to the front inside of the sled. If your Dremel is charged, you could make a couple small holes. 
Tie the two loose ends into a knot at your desired length.

You could add a belt to the back to secure the baby if you'd like. I simply propped him up with the blanket.
Blanket = Square of fabric cut from old sweatshirt.

Need some milk, bread and eggs".

  1. What a great idea. People at church are going to build and furnish a Barbie house as a raffle item for our church bazaar in Nov.'19. As a 1/12 scale dollhouse fanatic, I want to make some accessories for it. I'm not the carpenter or the crocheter, but I love simple, upcyling crafts. I am going to have a good time looking at your blog!

    1. What a great way for people to come together on a fun project.

  2. What a great project. When I was a kid I remember there being lots of leaflets that changed old bottles into toys by cutting them into different shspes, using the bottoms, etc. It is good to see that return.
