they reminded me of a blog that I had come across awhile back that I had put on my to do list. You can go here to check it out.
So I set out to make my own family of peg people
I started by painting the head and top part of the body a skin tone. The color that I chose was very close to the color of the wooden peg but it also serves as primer so to speak for the hair color. It also gives your family a uniform skin tone.
Then using my very thin brush I out line with the paint along the line I have drawn
Then using my larger angled brush I cover the rest of the head. I usually do two coats.
Then using a pencil I mark where I want to put the eyes and mouth
Then using a toothpick I paint in the eyes and mouth
Now we accessorize. You can paint little bows or do like I did and make it look like little hair clips
There they all are. But wait, they need clothes!!
For the clothes I used scrap booking paper and mod podge
Then I finished it off with a little paint and one more layer of mod podge over the whole doll. Here they are all dressed and ready to go
Now they need a little house to live in. Also at Grace Violet's blog you can find a great tutorial and even a free printable pattern on how to make one.
Here is the one I made. I haven't finished decorating it yet but will be finishing that up real soon
