Artsy Hooligans | DIY Peg Dolls
If you and your littles are feeling artsy on a rainy day, these DIY peg dolls are perfect to make. The best part is that they can use their imagination and be as creative as they want.
- Wooden Peg Dolls
- Acrylic Paint
- Newspaper (optional)
- Gloss Glaze (optional)
Step 1: Paint the heads a skin tone of your choice. Wait until paint dries to add facial details.
Step 2: Paint the bodies in whatever color you choose. You can create endless outfits with just a bit of imagination. Something we think would be fun is a bikini or a tuxedo 😉
Step 3: Using a toothpick, add facial details (once skin paint has dried). We think a mustache would be fun to put on the boy dolls hehe.
Step 4: Add hair. You can really get creative with hair color, style and accessories for the dolls.
Step 5: Add details to the outfits once the base color has dried. Polka dots, stripes, zig zags, bow ties and necklaces can all be painted on with tiny toothpicks.
Step 6: (Optional) Glaze the dolls to preserve the paint and make them more vibrant in color (and shiny).
Step 7: Time to play!
