DIY Princess and Super Hero Peg Doll Valentines

I have to admit this Valentine's Day idea came directly from my crafty 5 year old. He saw me painting these and requested that each kid in his class receive a peg doll. At first the idea seemed daunting, but in truth they were very easy and fun to make!

Pin It

Materials:
Wood Peg Dolls (less than $.10 ea)
Acrylic Paint
small tip paint brushes
Modge Podge Acrylic Sealer

Directions: I followed a wonderful tutorial for painting boy and girl peg dolls over at Lil Blue Boo. I added an additional step. After the dolls were painted and completely dry, I sprayed on a clear coat of Modge Podge acrylic sealer. This will prevent the paint from chipping or scratching.

I used an editable scallop 3" square printable available over at Whisker Graphics to create the Valentine tags. I added fun text to each box. Printed and cut out the tags. 

I cut 2 slits on the left side of the Valentine and tied the peg dolls to the tag with divine twine. 

Superman

Woody

Spider man

Snow White

Cinderella

Wishing you an extra PRINCESSY and SUPER HERO sized Valentine's Day!

Mario - Luigi - Pirate - Batman - Woody - Spiderman - Superman - Buzz Lightyear

Snow White - Rapunzel - Cinderella - Belle - Ariel - Mulan - Jasmine - Sleeping Beauty
