Homemade Gift - A Family of Peg Dolls

I finally have some photos of the Peg Dolls I made for my daughter. I also made Superhero Peg People for my son. As with the Superhero version, these are not intended for children under 3 years old!

The Peg Family


Grandma and Grandpa Peg come over for a visit


Mr. and Mrs. Peg are discussing where to take the kids on the next family vacation...

To make your own Peg Dolls you'll need:

~pre-made peg dolls that come in a 2 pack from Michael's Arts and crafts (or your local craft store like Hobby Lobby- they only coast $1.19 at Michael's!)
~Craft Paint (Acrylic- I used Apple Barrel brand)
~ Mod Podge (acts as a glue for your fabric "clothes" and as a sealer to prevent paint chipping)
~Scraps of fabric for clothes

Steps:

Paint your dolls. (I painted in steps, base coat for head and face and I painted a coat on the body, let dry and then went back and added a few details)
Let dry.
Cut fabric to fit around dolls
Slather on a coat of Mod Podge
adhere fabric clothes and slather on another coat of Mod Podge glaze.
Let dry.

Presto! Your very own collection of mini pegs!

  1. Okay, I just love these so much. I just have a boy, but the fabric on them for their clothes is so adorable!

  3. My mom called me after she saw this post (I told her about you!) and asked if Mikayla would like these. Super cute and a gift idea we'll probably use for her next birthday or next Christmas.
