Try folding a piece into double thickness to get a thicker and stronger 'fabric'
Fold foil into long strips to make straps, headbands or bracelets. These can be fixed onto the doll just by twisting the ends together

Pleat a long rectangle of foil into a concertina to make a skirt. Wrap around the doll and squeeze the foil at the waist. Wrap a foil belt around and twist the ends to secure.
