This rainbow peg doll set is another one of E's handmade Christmas gifts. I think she is going to love it!
I bought the peg dolls and cups from Hobby Lobby. They were 50% off, so I spent a total of about 3 dollars.
I painted the dolls and cups with liquid watercolors (from IKEA).
This was a fun and simple gift to make for my sweet girl!
where in hobby lobby are they i've looked at looked??ReplyDelete
love this homemade gift it is super cute!!!
Awww, those are so cute!!! Any chance you'll eventually make another set and put it up on etsy or something? I'd love to have a set for Bug, but we don't have a Hobby Lobby near us.ReplyDelete
I love this idea! Thanks for sharing!! Off to Hobby Lobby I go!!ReplyDelete
I made the EXACT same thing for J-jo (same age more or less as E)! lol. I just haven't had time to post it yet!ReplyDelete
You can find pegs like that at Michael's and JoAnns too.
Thanks for sharing such great ideas! I just went to HL today to get items to do this! I'm including them in a "treasure basket" (also inspired by you) of items for my 2 nephews (a one year old and 9 month old). Merry Christmas to you and thanks for inspiring me to make more gifts for kiddos rather than just buy them!ReplyDelete
Those are adorable! I am totally going to make those for my daughter (she's 3, but would LOVE them!)ReplyDelete
Your blog is an inspiration! I'm just starting up my blog, but I hope you will check it out sometime. I've been reading your blog for ages!ReplyDelete
barefootinsuburbia- I do plan on opening an etsy shop...one day. Right now, I can barely find time to make things for my own kiddos :) Luckily, you can find the peg dolls and just about any other unfinished wood product online at Casey's Wood Products. I've ordered from there for the past couple of years and have been very pleased with the products and pricing. Here's a link. http://www.caseyswood.com/?gclid=COW95sbH4KUCFcqs7QodiQ-80gReplyDelete
I did this same project for my little girl this Christmas. I didn't like the feel of the raw painted wood and I found that one quick layer of Modge Podge made them look nice and finished and feel smoother.ReplyDelete
I love this idea!! I just went to Hobby Lobby today to get the materials. I found both large and small peg dolls and cups so I got both sizes. Not only can she match colors but she can match sizes too.ReplyDelete
Do you remember the sizes you used? I got the little cups from A.C. Moore and the little pegs from Hobby Lobby. Only they don't fit together.ReplyDelete
I made two mini-sets of these today (our Hobby Lobby only had one package each of 8 pegs and 6 cups so I made two sets of primary colored ones for my nieces' Christmas gifts). My daughter had fun painting the extra 2 pegs while I did the gifts!ReplyDelete
One word of advice (perhaps as a PS on your post?) Check the fit of the pegs to the cups prior to painting. I did not do this and found that they all varied in sized minutely, which lead to me sitting on the couch sanding out the inside of a cup with an emery board for about 45 minutes to make his match fit! A quick pairing up of the pegs to cups prior to painting would have saved me a ton of time. :)
I found this post a week ago and I didnt save. So I have spent a good 40 min or so searching blogs to find this project! :) I LOVE this! I am totally going to HL to get the stuff! :) Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Just went to Hobby Lobby to pick up the supplies for this. Thank you for the idea!ReplyDelete
Thanks for this great idea, I had my big daughter make some for her little sister : http://marm0tte.free.fr/lafabrique/index.php?post/2011/01/27/Poup%C3%A9es-de-couleurReplyDelete
Hey! I just wanted to share the ones that I made for my daughter. They were a HIT!
