7 Barbie Accessories That You Can Make at Home

The Barbie doll is an iconic toy that many girls and boys still want to play with nowadays. There are several models and many accessories to play with. The way you play with it can change completely with every new accessory you buy or, in this case, make. Considering the prices and the amount of the existing accessories there are out there, it’s quite difficult to get all of them without having to spend a lot of money.

That’s why 5-Minute Crafts wants to show you how to make your own Barbie accessories with objects and materials that you probably already have at home. After crafting these things, playing with your Barbie will never be the same.
