Barbie Grill from Plastic Easter Egg and Pipe Cleaners

Barbie says girls grill too! Making a BBQ Grill for Barbie has been on my mind for a while and this simple kettle one is made from half of a large Easter egg. The grate and legs are pipe cleaners with the top bars of the grate just glued to the bottom bars.
The legs need some redesigning (while doubled up and twisted they're still a bit flimsy and a little sloppy looking) so I'll keep working on that... If you have a better idea, I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment! Hopefully I'll get it figured out and have a tutorial before the 4th of July.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
Barbie invited Earl over for a grill-out...
But somehow I don't think this what what he had in mind:@)
 Happy Memorial Day Everyone!
Eat well, play nice and have fun:@)

  8. Lynn, you are like 'MacGyver" when it comes to putting together items for those Barbie dolls! Very creative!
    Poor Earl...he really gets a raw deal sometimes, huh? "Raw" "Grill" There is a very poor pun in there somewhere. *groan*

  9. LOL! I love this. Run away, Earl! Barbie is not your friend and she looks hungry.

  13. Barbie's grill is so patriotic and clever, Lynn, even if she is teasing Earl a little. I've missed that cute, little piggie friend. Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day.

  14. A possibility to make the base stronger would be to use coat hangers. Then they can be painted any color you like.
