Since making the decision as to where I want Being Mrs C to go next, I’ve really be catching up on all the crafty things that I enjoy doing and this meant that the latest bloggers box of goodies from Bostik and Craft Merrily couldn’t have been better timed.
The obvious themes with this one was Halloween and autumn and I really was itching to get stuck in with things. The wonderful thing about the boxes that Merry puts together is that it’s possible to do so many different crafts with what’s inside them.
A week later and I’m still crafting and still coming up with new ideas of things to make. I’ll do one round up blog post once I’m done, but until then I plan to break it all down into a series of separate posts for each things we’ve done, starting with the cute peg doll witch.
For this you need:
- Wooden peg
- Black foam
- Black tissue paper
- Green tissue paper
- Green felt-tip pen
- Black Sharpie
- Orange wool
- glu dots
- glu pen
I started off by colouring the top of the peg green for the witch’s face and then added a few strands of orange wool as hair (held in place with a couple of glu dots on her head).
I wrapped the rest of the peg in green tissue paper to form her body. This was held in place using the Bostik glu pen. I created a little cloak for her with some black tissue paper
From the black foam I cut out a circle and a triangle, which I then formed into a cone. More glu dots held the cone closed and attached it to the circle to form the hat’s brim. Another glu dot on top of the wool hair held the hat on her head firmly.
The final thing was a few facial details with a black Sharpie pen.
And then you have one, simple, peg doll witch in time for Halloween.
