a water coolerhe Machine that cool down or heated and distributed water With a cooling unit. It is usually located near the restroom because of the closer access to the plumbing. A drain line is also provided from the water cooler to the sewage system. Bottled water dispensers typically use 11- or 22-liter (5 or 10 gallon) dispensers that are usually located on top of the unit. Dolls may want to have their own water cooler for a classroom, doll hospital, office, or camping trip. The next craft was made from a recycled bottle with a cap and box, so be sure to get it from the kitchen before you throw it in the recycling bin. Make sure to clean the bottle with soap and water as well.

Support list:

  • Recycled bottle with screw top cap
  • recycled box
  • Paper or paint to cover the box
  • white school glue
  • flour knife (adult supervision)
  • Push pin (tack) for the faucet
  • Small items from a pen (optional) or a straw for the tap
  • Mod Podge (Optional)
  • Hot glue and a hot glue gun

To the left, see how I cut out the entirety of the diffuser spout and room for a cup. right,
I’m going to hot glue my faux water jug ​​to the box, lid end down.

Step by step instructions:

  1. Get a long narrow box about 7 inches high for the cooler holder.
  2. Cut a square hole in it for the water spout and also a doll-sized cup to fit snugly underneath.
  3. Using scrap cardboard, line this wall feature and cover it with paper.
  4. The spout is for appearance only, not real running water. I glued a clear push pin to the back wall and then glued a recycled pen tip to the front of the pin to form a kind of spout.
  5. I also glued it to a water bowl at the bottom to make the water cooler look realistic.
  6. Cover the rest of the stand with paper or paint. I used pale mint colored paper and white school glue for this part of the process.
  7. Empty and remove the label of the recycled water jug ​​dispenser. I opted to use a pot that once held chicken stock cubes because this was more like a modern water jug ​​to me.
  8. Turn this upside down and hot glue the cover to the top of the water holder/cabinet. (look at the pictures)
