American Girl Doll Craft Tutorial: Mini Campfire

Camping season is finally here and we have a great American Girl Doll or Teddy Bear sized craft for you!

See below to make a mini fire pit for your favorite doll or stuffed animal…or just for www.cupcakesandlace.comfun!  You only need a few supplies.


Cupcakes and Lace Mini Fire Pit Supplies:

  • Small piece of cardboard or card stock paper for the base of the fire
  • small rocks (can buy these at Dollar Tree) or find a local creek or stream!
  • yellow, orange, and/or red tissue paper or  regular paper
  • scissors
  • tacky glue
  • Popsicle sticks

www.cupcakesandlace.comHow to Make:

  1. Start by cutting your base for the fire pit.  We use a small piece of cardboard cut.  You can also use card stock or thick paper.
  2. Next glue your rocks to your base- in a circle.  Make sure to leave room for your flames and logs in the center!
  3. Use scissors or tear with your fingers to create logs and flames.  You don’t need to much tissue paper for this.  We laid 4 small square pieces of tissue in a stack-one on top of the other.  Then (see picture to the right) twisted the bottom right in the center to create a flame shape.
  4. Put some glue on the base in the center of the circle.  Glue down your logs and flames.
