DIY Barbie Patio Set From Re-purposed Dollar Store Finds

In under 30 minutes and for under $5.00 I was able to put together a great little one of a kind patio set that Barbie can use to enjoy those lazy summer days! You will be surprised how much kids enjoy playing with toys they’ve made themselves: they learn how to embrace imperfection, how to recycle, how to be resourceful and how to occupy their time with creative endeavors that gives them a sense of accomplishment and achievement, so dig through the junk drawer or take a trip to the dollar store together and see what you can turn into Barbie magic!

When I found these cute little candle holder chairs, all I needed to do was remove the candle and cover the seat with some colorful duct tape. It just doesn’t get any easier! They came in a variety of colors and only cost $1.25 each and I wish I had bought more because these would make great gifts!

One issue I had was the size of the candle holder hole – it was too large to cover with one strip of tape so I chose to go with two strips; one going either direction. You can also add a strip of tape to the upper panel of each chair as well.

It comes with a little spatula to lift up the cupcake so when I removed that – there is a gap on the top of it. To address that, I glued on a circular polka dot tag from a gift bag and it even has a  pattern similar to the tape on the chairs.

For the  Trellis I used a piece of plastic I found at the re-use centre that is from a fabric store, gave it a coat of paint and glued on some flowers.
