How-To Make Wood Dolls (Peg Dolls)


Peg dolls are simple to make and cute for kids to play with.I made these Minion Pegs for a stocking stuffer for holiday but these are great anytime. These make a great birthday gift or party favors to give and you can get very creative with them.

625458_10202076857356336_1124171520_n

I have put together this little tutorial to make your very own peg dolls.

Materials Needed:

For ideas on where to buy these items, see the list of sources at end of this post.

  • Wooden peg dolls
  • Watercolors or acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Beeswax and oil rub to seal your finished peg dolls (or another non toxic sealant, like Mod Podge or Shellac spray).

Note: I like using non-toxic acrylics

Directions:
Once you have your materials, you can begin to paint your peg dolls. I start with Minions body painting it yellow,let dry completely before next doing blue outfit,let dry and with thin paint brush paint face details. After the dolls are completely painted and dry, you can give them a rub down with your beeswax and oil blend, or coat them with shellac.

The beeswax will darken the peg doll up some. Rub a thick layer into the doll and let it soak in over night. The next day you can rub your doll down with a cloth. It will be smooth and it should have a nice coat of beeswax to seal it from moisture. These dolls are not water resistant though the beeswax will protect it some you can use Shellac to give it a stronger seal. This will give the dolls a shiny hue.

After you have sealed your dolls with your choice of beeswax or another sealant, your dolls are ready to be played with. Enjoy the fantastic play these homemade goodies will bring to a child!
