For some of us, it’s ALWAYS Halloween. We crave a touch of the twisted; savor the shock value. Something about a discarded doll can be beautiful, sad, and a bit scary that draws many crafters. We’ll showcase some of the best delightfully creepy upcycled doll projects! Be prepared to tread along the terminator line that divides art and horror; fabulous and freak show!
Use bits and pieces and create a wicked Evil Soldier Robot!
Make eye-catching and spine-tingly lamps like this Bright Baby Lamp Set!
Barbie Does Burlesque? With bright lights and all…
Make unusual, hauntingly beautiful art with discarded bits & pieces like this “Joyous Spring” trash art! Forget those garden gnomes – this Dolly Trash Art Sculpture is much spookier and interesting!
Dolls & Hookahs… Yeah, they go together. Finally, get your money’s worth out of all of those old dolls! Just check it out! What’s not to love? It’s got a hookah and a creepy little doll face!
Dolls Make Chandeliers! Really! Put them to work, and dress ’em up any way you want to match your decor in this creative and conversation-stimulating chandelier.
Let’s get a little twisted with this Little Bestiary Sculpture!
Make yourself a BabyDoll Coat Rack and wow your guests with your creepy creativity!
Okay, so it’s not a baby doll… It’s another type of Doll for Adults transmogrified into a jacket!
When the whole is greater than the sum of the parts – like this Humanoid Face From Doll Parts! This clever piece of artwork is like those drawings with the hidden image. Once you see it, you can’t unsee it. Just look at how many individual dolly parts – and various types of doll parts – went into this sculpture. It’s really quite stunning!
Don’t cry over broken dolls – make Barbie Jewelry instead!
Light it up, Barbie! This Can-Can Dolly Chandelier looks like it is in motion even when still.
Creepy-Crawly-Dolly! Better than a Beware of Dog sign any day…
No more Empty-Headed Dollies with this idea! This is an unusual way to upcycle a doll head, but why not? It’s great, and would certainly make someone pause and look closer.
When you Wave Goodbye To Those Barbies… (the editors apologize for that pun)
This Upcycled Doll Projects could be great for Halloween OR Christmas….or both! The EYES Have It! (yes, we’re apologizing again!).
Blended Doll Art will certainly be a conversation piece!
Beautiful? Frightening? Unique Doll Chandelier will turn heads!
Be freaky, but keep it under wraps with this inspired Doll Lamp!
Make a Barbie Mandala! A fun Upcycled Doll Projects Idea! You could do a mandala-like this but mount it on a board – and hang it on the wall—an excellent way to make an art piece out of outgrown toys.
We know! They’re not Barbies, but c’mon – how cute is this Baby Mobile from Foosball Men?
That’s all folks, but, since we’re talking all things doll, how about this Pallet Dolly High Chair?
Majken Fosgerau Salomonsen kom sådan til at tænke på dig ?
Un peu bizarre ces membres de bébés, j aime pourtant beaucoup l’originalité et le décalé… Mais là, je suis septique… Cela n’engage que moi ! ?
wonder what they would do with the head – now I know what to do with those dolly bits I have.
We’d love to see what you come up with!
Tracy I hope you have a lovely day
Galina Poillion …. this looks fun
Chrystal, for your creepy doll collection! ?
Oh NO……. TOO MUCH ?
I find these sculptures too creepy for an average house, but for a post-modern alternative artsy or horror-themed pub/restaurant/discoteque they would be perfect. They are also super creepy halloween decorations :D
Mack O’burg ahahha
Gene Bunger Erin Fitzgerald Jacobs
Omg!!! Love this thanks Maddy Cakes!??
And then in Mexico, they have Doll Island https://www.google.com/search?q=doll+island&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi59_em-svUAhWC7YMKHbPcD4kQsAQIOg&biw=1280&bih=894
Great ideas. Keeping note for Halloween.
Although, incandescent light bulbs and plastic don’t tent to mix very well. May I recommend and edit to using LED bulbs? Cheaper and safer in the long run.
Great concept, mind ☺
Always great to have good safety tips! Keep ’em coming! – HS.
