Princess Peg Dolls

Anyone else making homemade Christmas presents this year? I'm making a whole slew of princess peg dolls for my daughter. This is the first batch. These were actually a present for my niece's birthday, so when I make them for my daughter I'll take pictures along the way and give you guys some tutorials.

Left to Right:
Rapunzel, Pink Princess, Prince Charming, Green Fairy
How To Make:

They all need to be painted and sealed first. Click here to see the directions I found for painting these. It worked really well and was super easy!

Rapunzel~ Her braid is made from 3 strips of braided felt. I glued it on her head and then hid it by making a princess hat from felt and a scrap of sheer fabric. Her skirt was made from pieces of lace. Detailed directions for making the skirt can be found here. All of it was hot glued on.

Pink Princess~ Once painted, make the crown from felt and red glitter glue. Use hot glue to attach the crown. For directions on how to make the skirt, see my post here.

Prince Charming~ After painting, cut the sword from foil and attach with a glue stick. Seal over the top with your same sealer and make his belt from felt. Then paint the handle for the sword. Fashion his crown from felt with red glitter glue dots and hot glue onto his head.

Green Fairy (aka Tinker Bell)~ Paint her leotard down to the top of her legs. When done painting doll, glue pom pom balls around her for the "skirt". Her wings and bow are cut from felt and then hot glued on. Don't forget to cover her with glitter "fairy dust" ;-) Be sure to seal over the glitter to prevent it from coming off.Hope you enjoyed the diy instructions! Now go make some fairy tale Christmas presents ;-)

Remember to check back for more directions! Soon I'll be posting on making more fairy tale dolls, making princess furniture, and also making a castle for all of them to live in :-D

Very cute. I'm trying to make a bunch of gifts this year. And since I have so many supplies - I'm trying to see what I can make without buying anything. Otherwise I'd totally try these out.
