Today I'm going to show you how to make little pipe cleaner doll ornaments. I loooooove these so much!
First you bend a pipe cleaner in half. Cut it in half, bend one for the legs, the other for the arms.
The head is a little wooden bead, I drew the face on with sharpie and painted the hair.
Next tie a piece of baker's twine in the middle and pull through the hole.
Now you have your little doll... ready to decorate. I used bits of trim that I already had. You can also make little felt clothes for them.
Aren't they cute together? It reminds me of something my grandma might have made. I used a hot glue gun to attach the embellishments.
I bought these cute little circle tins at Michael's to use as packaging. I cut out 2 circles for the top, added a few flowers...
and they are all set to be given as a gift.
Tomorrow I will be showing you a felt nesting doll... make sure you come back and visit!
