Drumroll please…we have finished the doll’s house project. Ain’t no procrastinators here!

So, unlike your headmaster at a school assembly, we shall waste no time with chit chat and get straight to the point…

You will need:

Wooden clothes pegs ( for as many people as you want to make)

A saw and sandpaper

An old magazine or some fabric

Scissors

Glue

Paint and brushes

Sharpie markers

  • You need the one piece pegs, that don’t have springs. So they fit inside your house, you will need to saw off all or part of the prongs. Even if you are a pro at sawing, have a grown up with you just incase as it’s quite fiddly sawing small objects. We needed to sand the bottoms of ours afterwards to smooth them off.

  • Next choose some funky textures or patterns (photos of clothes or wallpaper are ideal) from a magazine, or use fabric scraps, to make your doll some clothes. The body part of our peg measured 2cm so we cut out strips this size and glued them around the body. Ruby then cut out little pictures to stick on for detail, you could also use stickers or glue on little gems, ric rac or ribbon – whatever you like!
  • When the glue was dry we painted on hair, then drew on faces with sharpie markers.

And you’re done!

Thanks for sticking with us for longer than anticipated 😀  We’re officially gearing up for Halloween now – we LOVE trick-or-treating! – so stay tuned for Halloween costume makes and ideas…
