First, paint your peg people as desired. (Make sure to paint their heads and their feet. Their middle will be covered with scrapbooking paper). Next, pick some fun papers to go with them. I used all papers that I already had, so some of them weren't as perfect as I had hoped they would be.
Then, just mod podge the papers on. When you do this, cover the entire peg doll in the protective top coating to keep your paint from chipping off. This will also make them nice and shiny. When you're all done, you can cut felt accessories out for hats, leaves, hair, wings, etc and just hot glue them on.
I made the following halloween peg people (from left to right) A skeleton, A One eyed one horned flying purple people eater (complete with music note paper for the rock-n-roll music he plays through the horn in his head), a pumpkin, a mummy, a witch, Count Dracula (with number paper), a black cat, Frankenstein, and a ghost.
The Mummy was a little different. I painted the peg completely black, then wrapped him in a thin strip of masking tape and mod podged over the top.
If you make some, let me know so I can some see them on your blog! :-)
Happy Halloween, everyone!
