Peg Doll Kids' Craft: Wild Wigs and Crazy Colors

Recently I’ve seen adorable peg doll craft tutorial after even more adorable tutorial. So, I decided to try my hand at making a few of these cute little playthings. That said, I’m not quite the seamstress, and I truly doubted that I had any ability to sew teeny tiny little clothes for the pegs.

Instead of sewing or using fabric, I tried out pipe cleaners on the dolls. Super-easy and worked very well. While making a snack stadium (yes, they do exist – and are much more fun than simply stashing snacks on a table), I added these dressed-up pegs as football fans.

After making the first batch, I set out to create a few more. The only issue was that I had no more pegs. Even though the craft store is a quick 10 minute drive away, I didn’t feel like leaving the house on a cold, cold Sunday. With the pipe cleaner clothes and clay hair, I figured that it wouldn’t be terribly tricky to swap out the old look for a new one. And, it wasn’t!
Doll Craft

Not only can your child create her own peg dolls to play with, but she can make an infinite amount of interchangeable clay wigs and pipe cleaner dresses. This means endless pretend play possibilities. Your child dress up the dolls in holiday colors (such as pink and red for Valentine’s Day), make rainbow-hued hair or mix and match designs.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Wooden peg dolls (you can find these at most craft stores or online)

·        Markers

·        Modeling clay (do not get air dry clay, it will crack and fall off)

·        Pipe cleaners

·        Scissors

Here’s What to Do:

1. Draw a face on the doll with the markers.

2. Wrap the peg with a pipe cleaner (or a few, for a multi-colored outfit), starting at the neck.

3. Mold the hair on the peg’s head with the clay.

That’s it! When your kiddo gets bored playing with the dolls, take the ‘hair’ off and unwrap the pipe cleaners. Switch up the wigs and re-wrap the dolls with new pipe cleaner colors. What else can your child do with the dolls? Along with crafting them, your child can create pretend plays for the dolls. Use the changeable outfits (and hairstyles) to dream up colorful characters or make a fictional friend from a favorite book come to life!

  7. However, most often buyers fail to differentiate the human lace front wigs from their synthetic counterparts, and thus end up buying the latter even though they intend otherwise. synthetic lace front wigs Lace front cap wigs With lace fronts, all the above wig types can be enhanced.

  18. The cap is the base of the hairpiece that sits on the head and is the thing that the hair is appended to. There are wide range of covers that are utilized on hairpieces, including the standard cap, which is the most well-known and the most reasonable kind of hairpiece cap. On a standard cap, the hair is machine-sewn onto the cap.private label wigs
