project 9 | wee wooden folk

Wooden peg dolls are so simple to make, but oh so much fun to bring to “life”. All you need are some wooden peggies (likely on the aisle with the unfinished wood at your local craft store), a set of non-toxic enamel paints (I love these because they dry so shiny with a hard finish in two quick-drying coats), and a little imagination. But don’t say I didn’t warn you…it’s addictive. These are part of Wren’s third birthday preparations. I have a few more to finish and I’m going to have to make myself put them away. There’s still much to be done!
