Rainbow Fairy Dolly Pegs

| |

Ever since we have had Pixies visiting our house, the kids are into everything magical BIG TIME – including of course Fairies. So it was high time we made some mroe Fairy Dolly Pegs (we made some Tinkerbell Dolly Pegs a while back, but we itched for new ones). I started the process off by making a Rainbow Fairy Doll for the kids.. the next day, they made Dolly Peg after Dolly Peg themselves. The photos show Pip Squeak’s efforts.. as Red Ted took his Fairy Peg Dolls to bed with him and I haven’t seen them since!

First the Rainbow Fairy Dolly Peg:

To make the Rainbow Fairy Dolly Peg, I used:

  • a Dolly Peg
  • Some pens (they happen to be marker pens, but any felt tip witll do)
  • Some white lace
  • Some white felt
  • PVA glue and Glitter

Rainbow Fairy Dolly Peg - Step by Step

1) I started by adding the stripes. I started with the bottom layer and worked my way up, to make sure it all fitted.

2) Then I gathered some lace with a running stich and secured it to the Dolly Peg with some good PVA glue.

3) I then covered the head and feet with PVA glue and dipped it carefully in our Gold and Dark Brown Glitter! I carefully balanced i it on a glass to let dry!

4) Finally I added the facial featured with a biro (as the food grain does “run a bit”).
