A Neighborhood of PEG PEOPLE: A Homemade Christmas

To go along with my Homemade Christmas Challenge I made my 2 1/2 year old girl some Peg People this year.

 ok, so I made 24 pegs and 3 houses.....I couldn't help myself!!
Here they are:


(Don't let the green grass fool you.......it snowed a few hours after taking these photos!)



I found the houses at Hobby Lobby.  They come in 3 different sizes and this is the smallest size.  The unfinished wooden peg dolls I also found at Hobby Lobby.  I used coupons on everything so this project cost less then $8.00.
A few late nights painting and this project was finished within a week.  Love it!!
I thank this post for the house idea as well as wrapping the dolls in fabric....that alone saved me a ton of time!  Simply cut small strips of fabric and Mod Podge them onto your painted pegs.

Make sure to take a look at my other Homemade Christmas Gifts for 2012
