I've put together a "Paint Your Own Dollhouse" kit for a couple of little girls on our list this year. Included in the kit are an unfinished dollhouse (it's marketed as a cd holder and sold in the unfinished wood section at Michael's), a family of unfinished peg dolls, and craft paint. I hope the little girls who receive this gift will have lots of creative fun with it!
It's just a perfectly wonderful idea. The little girls will adore this special dollhouse. They will be full of excitement.ReplyDelete
that is awesome! I LOVE it!!! I need to get some peg dolls!ReplyDelete
Where did you get the peg dolls?
Thank you for sharing!
I took inspiration from your painted peg dolls from last year (?), and painted a family for each of my 2 little cousins. For the house, I bought a little magnetic-lid wooden box (painted to look like a house). But I LOVE that CD case...I think I'll get that to do for my 3 year old!ReplyDelete
What a cute gift idea!ReplyDelete
*gasp*! I just bought some peg people families from http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=35462695 the other week after seeing a post from you about your little family. I am doing a family for my nieces but wondered about an inexpensive house. This will be PERFECT! Thanks again for great ideas!ReplyDelete
This is a great idea! Of course I would want one too!ReplyDelete
LOVE this. Where did you get the adorable peg dolls??ReplyDelete
This is so cute and someone is going to be thrilled.
Keep those ideas coming!!
Thanks, everyone! I don't have one of these kits for O yet, but I think I may put one together for her for Easter. You can find the peg dolls at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and online at Casey's Wood Supply. I think it would also be fun to include a bag of fabric scraps and scrapbook paper for more fun, but I decided to make it simple this time :)ReplyDelete
that is a great idea, I would have loved that as a gift when I was a kid (or now even!)ReplyDelete
Brilliant! Thanks for the idea, Melissa! I have a huge bag of wooden peg dolls (bought wholesale) that I have to paint up soon. To have them with this cute little dollhouse/CD holder is even better.ReplyDelete
Love this idea! However, I couldn't find the CD holder at my local Michaels :(.ReplyDelete
You are so crafty!
Thank you, Melissa, for sharing this tip! It looks WONDERFUL! :)ReplyDelete
Sadly, Michaels discontinued that house awhile ago.ReplyDelete
