The classic peg doll is an easy project for children to make. Let them choose what colour her feathered wings will be, get them to add a halo and she’ll be a gorgeous angel to hang on the Christmas tree.
- Wooden pegs
- Strong craft glue
- A pen
- Paper for a dress
- Thin craft wire
Cut the stems off the feathers to just where the feathers begin.
Glue a piece of paper onto the peg in a dress shape (to get a dress shape, simply cut a piece of paper and wrap it around the peg, applying glue down one side). Glue the feathers onto the back of the peg to form wings. Use a lot of glue to ensure they stick.
Wrap some thin craft wire around the ‘neck’ and up and around again to create a halo. You can use the halo to hang the angel on the tree.
Draw on an angelic face.
