Yeah yeah yeah, I can just hear you guys thinking that she’s gone over the deep end now with this post, am I right? I promise I haven’t and I won’t be doing posts like this now all the time LOL. But if you have a little girl that is obsessed with dolls like mine this might be helpful for you.
Here’s the reason for this post. Two weeks ago I was feeling sick and my daughter was bored out of her mind. It’s the same day I posted this photo on Instagram:
So we ended up playing with her dolls…doing their hair, picking out clothing…yada yada yada…and she asked me when we could go to NYC to have her dolls ears pierced. And you know me, right? At $15 per doll times 5 there is no way I’m spending that.
So I got to thinking of my beloved power drill. No investigating, no googling, just a spur of the moment decision and all her dolls had a makeover.
I swear it was spur of the moment, this post reenacted the process thanks to photoshop. I didn’t actually take photos that day because it all went that fast.
And here is what I did.
Here is what I used:
• my power drill
• a 1/16 drill bit and a 5/64 drill bit
• a sharpie
• a lighter
Again the doll before:
The doll with the sharpie marked ear:
I used the small drill bit to pre-drill a tiny hole, then took the bigger drill bit and drilled again:
And then (I feel like this step was really necessary because the earrings were still so hard to put in with out this step) I heated the 5/64 drill bit with a lighter and drilled again which opened up the hole perfectly. I wiped the ear and was able to easily put the earrings in.
And here she is with her perfectly pierced ears:
And with her earrings in:
And another one with earrings but I’m not going to torture you with the rest of all the dolls 😉
I always really struggle with writing posts like this because it really isn’t my thing at all and I always think nobody else will be interested either but I hope it is helping someone LOL.
