Doll Craft - Make a Butterfly Net for Your Doll

Sometimes while I'm cleaning out my craftroom I take a second look at the "to go" pile and BAM a fun idea is born.  This time it's butterfly nets for the dolls!

To make one for your doll you'll need the following:
Pipe cleaner or craftwire
Plastic paint brush (mine was from a childs watercolor paint set)
Mesh net bag (mine originally came with marbles, could use mesh bags from produce department of grocery store items)
Floral tape

Step 1: Take the open end of your mesh bag and fold a 1/2" towards the inside.  Then weave the pipe cleaner in and out of the loops all the way around the opening.

Step 2:  Space the netting while shaping the wire into a balloon.  Twist the ends together.  Snip off any extra wire.

Step 3:  Remove the bristles from your paint brush and throw them away.

Step 4: Put a dab of glue into the hole of the paint brush and then insert the  twisted wire ends.  Do not worry if the wire does not fit securely.

Step 5: Use the floral tape to wrap around the brush and over the wire to totally secure the net to the handle.

Step 6:  Look for bugs and butterflies to catch!
