I found these adorable peg dolls on Pinterest. There is a tutorial here.
I decided my baby had to have these for her third birthday.
What a fun present for any girl who loves princesses!
I wanted to add some more detail to my dolls. I looked up pictures of each princess and picked a few dress and hair details.
I looked around online to see how much these dolls cost, but I couldn't find anything.
I ended up getting all my supplies at Hobby Lobby and the total cost was $9 and some change. If you have brushes and paint already you're set! The pegs are around $2-$3 for eight!
The acrylic paint set I bought was only $3 and I had more than enough paint to make all of these. I did buy a bottle of pink paint because pink didn't come in the set. I had to mix some colors to get the right shades. I used a pencil to draw the dresses and hair on the pegs first. Then I started with painting the skin color, then hair, and dresses.
I think they turned out so cute! After I took these pictures I sprayed them with a sealant so they look a little more finished.
I decided to make a princess castle pillow to hold all of the princesses. It's almost like a princess hotel. My towers ended up being too narrow, but I think it still looks similar to a castle.
Here is my sweet birthday girl enjoying her gift!
Here are some close ups.
