Now we have made sushi for our dolls in the past and you can find that HERE but when AG put out their sushi set we just knew that we had to try to replicate it.
It took a while to figure out what we wanted to make the sushi out of. Then I got injured, so it got put on the back burner even further, but now here we are with the completed tutorial and we are so happy to show you guys how to make your own sushi set!
Let’s get started!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Paper and marker pens
Tacky glue or white glue
Small wooden board (We had a leftover piece from another craft)
Large wood beads
Brown puffy paint
Wooden BBQ skewers
Thick card paper (We used the sleeve from cell phone packaging)
2 plastic washer rings from handsoap pump bottles
2 caps from bodyspray bottles
Black hockey tape
Popeye candy box or any small box

OK first we will make the Dynamite Roll and the Futomaki sushi. Yum, my favourite! You will need Styrofoam and craft foam for this. You will also need an exacto knife and hot glue.
Cut a strip of light yellow-green craft foam long enough to wrap around three sides of the Styrofoam cube. Pull the craft foam strip tight so that it compresses the corners of the Styrofoam cube, rounding them out a little bit. Hot glue the strip in place, holding it tight until it dries.
I don’t know if you can see this next bit very well, but cover all the surfaces of the Styrofoam cube that are not covered in craft foam (the front, back and bottom) with a thin layer of hot glue. This just gives the piece some more weight. It also makes it look a lot less like Styrofoam.
To make the sashimi, we cut a small rectangle block of Styrofoam.
Make many and cut them out. Using tacky or white glue, adhere them to the centre of your sushi. Brush a light layer of tacky glue over the paper filling to seal it. Make sure to stick one filling on either side of your sushi.
Next, we will make the California Roll. You will need two strips of thick white craft foam and a thin strip of orange craft foam. (You could also use styrofoam for this.) Layer the craft foam strips as shown:
To make the sushi board is pretty simple. All you will need is a piece of wooden board and some wood beads. We had a random wood block in our crafting cupboard so we just used that. It needed to be cut in half. Then we glued wooden beads to the bottom for feet.
We added a ring from a handsoap bottle to the bottom of our plates. We just hot glued it on and painted it black to match the plate bottom.
Next, to make the wasabi trays. We used a Popeye’s candy box for this. I don’t know if everyone has heard of these. They used to be candy cigarettes for children. That is frowned upon now, so they have changed to be candy sticks. The Little Miss loves these things and has no idea that they used to be candy cigarettes.
Fill the middle compartment with brown puffy paint. Put a square of green craft foam for wasabi. We put a dollop of pink playdough in the other end for the pickled ginger, but we were having so much fun at this point that I forgot to take a picture. Oops!
To make chopsticks, simply cut down BBQ skewers and paint them black.
Finally to make the cups, we had these caps from some bodyspray bottles.
All we did was spray paint them white and paint red flowers on them. One tip is to prime the plastic cups first before you paint as that way the paint will adhere a lot better.
So love! 🙂 There’s that pink pickled ginger!Who’s craving sushi? Because we are!! ❤ Eeee! Heart eyes emoji!❤ Cost: $0 How cool is that? And we got to recycle some stuff too!❤ We can’t even with the serious cuteness of this set, you guys! We are just loving it!
