Some more Trash to Treasure ideas

BED SKIRT: Pre-gathered lace (about ½ - 5/8” wide) makes a good bedskirt.

BLANKETS: Fleece baby blankets from the dollar store are often thin enough to be cut into blankets for your dollhouse beds.

BOLOGNA: Cut very thin slices from the round eraser on the end of a pencil. If you have pencils with varying colours of erasers, you could do a plate of cold cuts. A white eraser could provide slices of mozzarella cheese.

BOWL:  Make a "crystal" fruit bowl or cake dish from those clear plastic suction cups.  Remove the hook!! 

BRASS TUBES:  When your ball point pen runs out of ink, save the empty ink cartridge. Cut off the end and you’re left with a wonderful plastic or ‘brass’ tube. Any remaining ink can be cleaned out using a pipe cleaner. The tubes, especially metal ones, can be used for plumbing pipes, lamp poles, furniture legs, etc.. Save the spring for a screen door. If the clip is metal, save it to use as a handle on a fridge door.
