DIY Toothpick Dolls
I am super excited to be here
today! I love party planning, and finding new projects and crafts to
entertain my kids. I love thrift shops, DIY projects, baking, cooking,
and sewing. I also love getting a DIY high from decorating my house on
the cheap! Come over and see me!
Alene’s Tacky Glue:
a small dot of glue on where the three pieces meet, and wrap the floss
starting at the top, and making your way down. Decide where you want the
skirt to end, and place a dot of glue there, and smooth the floss into
it. Make sure you always end on the same side.
wrap the shoulders starting with a glue dot in the back. My daughter
wrapped this with thicker floss. You can see if gives if a different
look and texture.
wrap the head. You can make a long thin head, or a round head. You
choose what you want. Just make sure not to go over the top of the
toothpick, and add glue to the back of the head periodically, otherwise,
all your floss could come off, and that would lead to more work.
add the hair. The best tip is to start in the back, with a two inch
piece of floss folded in half. Add a dot of glue to the hairline. Place
the fold on the glue. Then, add more until you feel it is thick enough.
After you have finished, give your doll a haircut for the desired
length. Small embroidery scissors work best.
RISSA THESE ARE SO DARLING, I know my Bella sure would love them. Thank you for sharing these sweet dolls with us all today.
