Barbie Baby Carrier from Plastic Easter Egg Craft

As Easter approaches I like to look at those colorful plastic Easter eggs at the stores and try to think of crafts to make with them. This Barbie Baby Carrier turned out cuter than expected, and if you use some ribbon already in your stash, comes together in minutes. We like that kind of craft here at DIY Barbie Blog:@) Now, I will say this is an *adult only* craft because I did use a box cutter to make the leg holes. Please be careful, safety first! I'm sure there are other options for the holes, maybe folks could leave them in the comments... This carrier is made with the smallest plastic eggs, they are about 1 3/4" long.

✂What I did:
  1. Separate egg and very carefully begin to cut holes in the round end of the egg. These babysitter series babies have bent legs, you'll need a doll to make sure you can get it into the openings. Try to make the holes as large as you can, and as close to the "dot" in the center of the bottom as you can. 
  2. Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to run through each leg hole and go up around Barbie's neck. Approximately 20". Push ribbon through the hole openings and glue to outside sides of egg. I used hot glue. Suggestion: If your girl is really young, you might want to glue the ribbon that's on the inside of the egg to the back of the egg exposing the leg holes better.
  3. Use Barbie as guide, make ribbon go around her neck and tie a knot in ribbon. Trim ends of ribbon if needed or as desired.
  4. Place baby in carrier, put ribbon around Barbie's neck, fix her hair of course😉, and now Barbie is ready to run some errands with baby.
