How to Make Your Own American Girl Isabelle Doll Ballet Barre!
Anyway, when that was done, I went back to one of the cut halves. I covered one in a contrasting paper (wood grain, for a more realistic look).
I deliberately left it wider than the strip of board so that I could fold it over to 1. Make it more secure, and 2. Cover the visible cut edge of the board.
After that, it was time to attach to the larger piece. I paused to add glitter tape strips, since that was part of the decoration we wanted.
After securing the boards together (again with scrapbook glue), I added the other cut piece to the back side (so that the bottom of the wall is actually 3 boards thick) Leave this alone to dry for a while (add some heavy books to keep it tight).
Later, measure up how high you want your barre, then use a ruler to make sure that you keep the marks even with each other. Screw in the tiebacks, then slide your barre through. I slid the barre through each tieback after I put them in, so that it wouldn’t be too difficult if any of the hooks were slightly off.
