Queen of Good Thoughts

Upcycled Good Thoughts Bottle Doll

I found a little bottle of “Good Thoughts” at a garage sale recently.  The bottle was in next to new condition for 50 cents…YAY!  I like to make little silly dolls because they make easy gifts.


Here are the supplies, the bottle, a candlestick, materials for a skirt, a wood ball and printout for the head and sheet music for the crown.  I love Boursin cheese that comes in a 3 pack at Costco.  I use the foil packaging for lots of projects.


The doll head easily removes so the contents of the bottle can still be used.  I picture this doll as a gift instead of flowers to a recuperating patient, or for a 40th birthday party gag gift.  I sell dolls similar to these at Sunrose Gallery in Seaside I price them at $24.00 and they are definitely worth my time since it cost less that $3.00 to make!
