Step 2: Make Wire Skeleton

Form the wire skeleton using the hairpins and the metal wire. Wrap the joints with metal wire so that they remain strong.

Step 3: Make Body Shape

  • Roll tissue paper around the wire skeleton
  • Stick the tissue paper with Fevicol wherever required
  • Make the human body shape by tying the thread over the tissue paper

Step 4: How to Make Frock ?

  • Make alternating folds in a piece of tissue paper
  • Fold it at the center and make a fan shape as shown in the picture.

You need about 4 - 5 pieces of these to be used to form the frock of the doll.

Step 5: Attach the Frock

  • Place the fan shapes made with tissue paper at the hip of the toll one by one
  • Arrange them to form the frock around the doll

  • Tie the frock with the doll using whit thread

Step 6: Add the Thin Stick

  • Take 12 inches long thin bamboo stick
  • Place it inside the frock shape and join it with the metal wire at the portion.
  • Use transparent adhesive tap to hold the stick in place
  • Apply little bit of glue at the joint so that the stick is fixed firmly at the center.

Step 7: Glittering

  • Use golden glitter to decorate the body above the frock
  • Decorate the frock with different colors of glitters

Step 8: Bridal Head Covering

  • To make the bridal head covering,
  • Take a tissue paper and make a fan shape as we did earlier for the frock
  • Attach this piece to the back of the doll's head
  • Take 1/4th length of tissue paper and make the an shape.
  • This small piece can be attached to the front covering the face of the doll
  • Decorate the net with silver colored glitter.
