This was super fun for my 8 yr old. You can use all sorts of old toys.


  • A old plastic/rubber toy ( or buy a cheap one from $2 shop )
  • Spray paint Colour of your choice
  • Spray on sealer (Clear) ... Adult use
  • Stanly knife *adult use
  • Blutac / Putty (Non toxic) ... Can use kids non toxic blutac


  1. Carefully cut a round opening at the top of the doll's head
    *if you would like to protect any part ie' eyes ect cover the area with blutac
  2. Spray paint the doll in a well ventalated area and allow to dry
  3. Seal with the sealing spray and allow to dry
  4. Fill and cracks and joints on the inside with blutac or putty, if the opening is large enough I seal the neck joint completely.
    Allow 24 hrs to set
  5. Fill the opening with potting mix & plant the succulent positioning to look like hair and enjoy watching your Dolly Pots head grow :)

  • Oh dear I’m not sure about this


  • These look awesome! Love my succulents and this is such a cute way of showing them.


  • I just love these Dolly Pots, what a great idea. I might replace some of my large round glass pots I have around the house with these dolly pots.


  • So many things can become a plant pot. A great idea


  • What a clever idea!


  • Usually anything doll related freaks me out but I think these give me more of a Buddha vibe so look pretty cool not sure I’d make for my own home though


  • Awesome idea


  • I really don’t like these sorry.


  • This is awesome! I have been looking for the old school troll dolls to do this sort of thing. But totally loving the dolls now!


  • What a cute idea! I might give it a try.


  • Oh I love this so much, totally cute. I think I’ll give this a go, I have plenty of succulents I could use too.


  • Looks like you’ve done a lot of work on these


  • that is very crafty. Would be great to give dolls from an opshop a second chance with this project!


  • Not sure these are for me, the gold ones look quite scarey, possibly nightmare material


  • This remind me scared movie i watch.But this is creative.Not sure i would try this.
