DIY Rocking Doll Cradle

This rocking doll cradle was inspired by a smaller vintage doll cradle I found at a local thrift store. I decided this would be the perfect Christmas gift for my 4 yr old who is very into dolls right now (especially a certain 18″ size doll that she lovingly calls “Cat”). This is one of those- quick easier than it looks projects! I used scrap wood and materials for the cradle you see pictured and I've now made several more each costing me about $18 or less!

  • Beautifully done! Looks like something that could be purchased at an expensive retailer. We're sure your daughter (and Cat) will love the new cradle. Thanks for sharing, @Shebuilder!

    • Thank you so much! My daughter is loving it and has already given me some great constructive criticism to improve future versions.. 😆 4 year olds are the best!
