Popsicle Stick Dolls

Materials

  • jumbo popsicle sticks (also known as craft sticks)
  • scraps of yarn or wool
  • small buttons
  • permanent markers
  • low heat glue gun

Preparation

The Popsicle stick will be the doll's body. From your yarn collection, choose a “dress” colour for your doll. Snip a long length of yarn from the ball. Starting close to the bottom of the craft stick, begin winding your yarn around the stick to create the doll’s dress. Trap your starting piece of yarn in place by wrapping over it a few times.Continue wrapping and winding your way up the stick, stopping an inch or so from the top, leaving space for your doll’s face and hair.

Cut your yarn, and secure it with a small dab of glue from the glue gun. Now, choose a hair colour for your doll, and wrap that around the top of the Popsicle stick. It can get a bit tricky up at the rounded top of the craft stick. You can dab a bit of glue there to keep the yarn from slipping off the end. Once your doll’s hair is finished, use a marker to draw a face on the Popsicle stick, and glue a few buttons down the front of her dress.
