    18" Doll Clothes Rack-Very Inexpensive!

    DH just finished this clothes rack for an 18" doll. I haven't fixed it up yet. But, I plan to remove all of the stickers ( ) ! I will probably find a cute washi tape and wrap it around the pipes.

    It is 22" wide and about 17" tall. The base pvc pipe is 11". DH said it was less than $4 with all of the joints and an 8' pvc pipe. I got the original plans from

    DH modified it a bit. Just like a quilter, huh?

    I ordered the hangers through Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/LAVENDAR-HANGE...lothes+hangers (not affiliated with Amazon.)

    You could always paint it....using that good spray paint.

    Really cute! There's also lots of cute Duck Tape now that would work great to wrap around it.
    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!

    I agree something this cool would go like wildfire at a craft show. This definitely is such a novelty that it would go quick

    That's exactly what I mentioned to DH. It took all of 15 minutes to cut and put together. Painting it or taping it would add a little more time but not much. Under $20 would help it sell.

    For sending in the mail the clothes rack comes apart easily since there isn't any gluing. That is why I want to use washi tape or duct tape.

    Very clever, and probably a lot less expensive than a purchased one. I personally can't wait for our DGD to get an American Girl (or look alike) doll so that I can start making clothes for it.

    Hey, that gives me a greater market to focus on at our Christmas Bazaar next year. Thank you for the idea.

    Gramquilter, I was taking inventory of the washi tape I have and noticed a paw print one. I was thinking of wrapping washi tape on the tubes between the joints.

    Cute idea! You might be able to find rubber chair feet to fit over the open ends and make the rack more stable. My Guild has a large plastic pipe rack with a flannel pillowcase type cover that is used as a design wall. Takes apart easily and totes in a sleeve type bag.
