Barbie Baby Bassinet from Recycled Shampoo Bottle

Does a Barbie in your child's life have a baby or babysit? This Barbie Baby Bassinet is anther super fast recycled shampoo bottle craft. All that's required are sturdy scissors and some scrap fabric for a blanket (looks like we have a future Eagles fan here:@) Decorating the outside is optional, but it sure can be fun! Oh and, that ~um~ hair doo? Yep, looks about right for a woman with a newborn!

Barbie Baby Bassinet:
1. Cut bottom off of shampoo bottle. Give yourself a piece about 2" high to work with and trim down.
2. Remove labels from shampoo bottle.
3. Wash well and dry.
4. Cut with sturdy scissors into a 'sleigh' shape, making one side higher with sloped sides.

5. Add a little batting for a mattress or a blanket and maybe a pillow.

6. Embellish outside as desired. Hot glue a ruffle, ribbon, pom-poms, rick-rack, etc around the outside edge if you want to make it fancy. Or let the girls color it with Sharpies, add stickers, glitter, etc. Note: My ruffle is 1" from top to the bottom of the scalloped edge.
7. Lay baby in bassinet and smile:@)

The scissors I used:

These Barbie babies are about $3 at Walmart and make a cute little gift.

Ha-ha, lovin' it!

Make something just for fun and have a happy day:@)


  1. Oh how cute! I don't think I have a baby but if I get one, I'll need to make a little bed for it! I wonder if those blankets come in other designs! heeheehee! You are so clever!

  2. Our granddaughter has just discovered Barbie. This would be a great together craft for us.

  3. That is just the cutest little project, Lynn! Harper is really into Barbie's, and she would love one of the babies and a bassinette. You're so clever!

  4. Too fun Lynn! When are those boys going to give you a granddaughter to play Barbie with? :)

  5. Too cute Lynn, love the Eagles blanket! Seems like the best teams didn't win this season :) I didn't know there were Barbie babies now!

  6. This baby bassinet is so cute. You are amazing with the adorable items and clothing you create. Love the tiny Eagles blanket too!
