Halloween Peg Dolls

Hi everyone! Made these cute Halloween peg people and thought y'all might be interested in seeing how to do it yourself ;-)

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!

Okay, these are ridiculously cute! I have to make sure to order some pegs or pick some up next time I'm in the states. Halloween maybe tomorrow, but I can order some and make Christmas peg dolls! Maybe even Thanksgiving if they come in on time. Hmmm.... awesome job!

I was thinking Christmas ones too! Or just plain generic ones. Or maybe some personalized ones for my kids!! Squee!!
