Peg Dolls

Meet the Candy Cane Club - Cookie, Cocoa, Cutie, Cupcake, and Barbara (she is the non-conformist of the bunch). These girls spend their days whipping up homemade hot chocolate, singing carols, and stringing popcorn garlands.


Peg dolls are such a sweet gift for little girls; creating imaginary lives for tiny characters is a daily activity in our home. My daughters have even resorted to using their fingers as people when we are running errands and they have forgotten their little girls.

If you are running low on inexpensive stocking stuffers, I highly suggest that you gather your Mod Podge (for decoupaging scrap fabric as dresses) and craft paint (peg dolls are available in the unfinished wood section of most craft stores), and start crafting a toy your child will play with well beyond December 26th.

That previous post by me was not by me, but by mom. I like the dolls a lot, but I don't really want to play with them - unless Georgia or Chloe ask me to.

You have such wonderful ideas! I love checking out your blog and getting inspired! Thanks!

I love this idea - you should do a "quick" post about how to accomplish such beautiful results. Surely you have some secrets because I have tried this and it is not as easy as it looks like it would be. I have a three year old who would love these. Help me out. Please.
