Mini Boot Kidz Coat Stand
Make your own mannequin coat stand
Step 1: Prepare the items needed to make a Lucy Coat Stand
The first step is to gather the tools and equipment you will need. This includes:
- Play-doh for the Wellington Boots
- Craft Wire for kids
- Clear Sticky-tape
- Putty moulding tools
Step 2: Print the outline of Lucy
Step 3: Cut and roll the play-doh
Cut the play-doh into a small manageable size (approximately half a tub per boot). Roll the doh on a tiled or smooth surface to prevent it sticking.
Step 4: Make the Wellington Boots
Cut the rolled play-doh in half. Join the two pieces as shown in the above video. Use some reference images of Wellington Boots to make your own designer Wellington Boots.
Step 5: Cut and Bend the wire around the stencil
The lengths of the wires are as follows:
- Hair: 29cm or 11.5 inches
- Body: 43cm or 17 inches
- Leg with knee: 13cm or 5 inches
- Straight Leg: 10cm or 4 inches
- Total: 95cm or 37.5 inches
Step 6: Join the wires
Cut out small squares of stick-tape and use these to join the wires together. Using sticky-tape is a lot safer than welding! Use two or three layers to ensure the joints are secure.
Step 7: Place the coat stand in the Wellington Boots
Assemble the coat stand and Wellington Boots by gently placing the coat stand into the play-doh. The coat stand should stand on its own.
