Children's Crafts - Punk Pegs

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Punk Pegs from www.walkaboutcrafts.com

You will need:

Wooden clothes pegs
Black felt
Wide ribbon or fabric scraps
Narrow synthetic ribbon
Narrow nylon cord
Beads
Felt tip pens
Scissors
Glue
Sewing thread
Needle
Plasticine

1. Use felt tips to draw a face on the top end of the peg. Then colour in the legs to look like trousers or tights.

2. For a tunic, cut a piece of black felt big enough to wrap around the body and reach about a third of the way down the legs. Stick on with glue.

3. To make a dress, first cut a strip of felt long enough to wrap round the body to make a bodice. Cut a piece of wide ribbon twice this length for the skirt, or use a fabric scrap.

4. Ask a grown up to help you sew the felt to the ribbon, gathering up the ribbon as you sew. Glue or sew in place.

5. For the hair, glue bits of cord to the peg head. Separate out the strands to make the hair frizzy. Alternatively, glue on pieces of synthetic ribbon.

6. Glue or sew pieces of cord or strips of folded felt to the back of the pegs to look like arms.

7. To finish, add belts and socks made from strips of felt. Thread beads on to sewing thread to make necklaces. Make plasticine feet.
