Dollhouse Miniature Trash to Treasure Milkshake

This week for the Trash to Treasure I thought it would be fun to make the dolls some milkshakes.

This is a project that has been around for many years, like a lot of the Trash to Treasure projects. I put my own spin on it for you.

You really only need a few items to make this. First the wire nuts, these are used in electrical wiring and should be really easy to find and pretty cheap. They come in several sizes so pick small ones for the 1/12th scale. The slightly larger size would be perfect for Barbie and her friends too.

If you want to provide the dolls with a straw find some plastic covered paper clips, again a fairly small size. I got mine at the dollar store.

For the milkshake or really the whipped cream that would be on the top of the milkshake we use our standard latex caulking. I love using this anytime I want to make whipped cream or frosting. It is really easy to use, easy to find (any place that sells paint for your real home) and cheap.

I did use a toothpick to put the caulk into the container since I cut the tip of my tube of caulk too big for this project. It is pretty easy to make a whipped cream swirl with a toothpick. Just play with it a little bit until you are happy with it.

If I would have thought of it I could have added some glitter “sprinkles” to the top.

Be sure to add that straw before the caulk starts to set up.

  1. The wire cap has the right size and shape of a milkshake glass and looks really good with the matching straw!
    Have a Very Merry Christmas Joanne! :D
