tutorial :: peg dolls & washi tape
A few days ago, I was emailing with a lovely librarian named Nora in Berkeley, CA, and she asked whether I had ever used washi tape to decorate peg dolls. I admitted to having purchased three pretty rolls several years ago and leaving them jumbled in a box with other paper-crafting items since then. I suppose I could have checked Pinterest for a few ideas, but generally have not found the concept of washi tape inspiring. However, Nora's question got me thinking. So I pulled out the rolls of tape, pulled out a few peg dolls, and here's what I came up with.
Felt and embroidery floss (optional)
STEP 1 :: Paint the upper half of your peg dolls (you can measure how far down to paint by putting a piece of washi tape on your dolls and marking with a pencil).
STEP 2 :: Add washi tape around the bottoms of your dolls. Use a scissor to cut lengths of tape so the edges are neat.
STEP 3 :: Paint faces, hair, or add silly hats if you prefer.
