dolly peg dancer craft for kids

How sweet is this little dolly peg dancer craft? We’ve had a huge pack of dolly pegs stashed at the back of the cupboard for ages and today my neice decided it was time we made something with them. We’d just finished making some yarn tassel doll keyrings for her school bag and she suggested that perhaps we could make some peg dolls too because they look like little little stick people. So after a little while of trying to figure out how on earth to fold the cupcake cases into a dress, we finally got there! We just love how cute these turned out!

Heres what we used

  • Dolly peg
  • Large cupcake case
  • Yarn
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Glue
  • Pens

First start by drawing eyes, a nose and a mouth on the head of your dolly peg. Then, give your dancer some hair by either drawing or sticking some on.

To start making the dress, take a cupcake case and fold it in half. Glue your dolly peg centrally on your cupcake case with the folded end of the case facing the dolls head.

Take a second cupcake case and again fold it in half. Making sure that the two cupcake cases match up, glue your second one both to the front of the peg and the first cake case.

Fold and glue the sides of the case liner backwards to give you your desired dress shape.

Take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around the top of your peg before twisting it so that it sits securely (if your having trouble a dot of glue will help!) Finish of your dolly peg dancer craft by giving her two little dancing shoes and optionally decorating her dress. Isnt she fab?
