My handmade Xmas tree decorations

Posted on

My department does a secret santa each year at our department lunch. Our theme was Christmas Decorations for £5 and I got my manager – PRESSURE! I wanted to find something child-friendly and something I knew she would enjoy. I also needed a present for The Boy’s parents and I do always try to make them something but I was stumped! Lucky Pintrest saved the day … Peg doll tree decorations!

I decided to make 2 different kinds… Super heroes for my manager (and her little boys) and Christmas themed ones for everyone else!

I managed to get a pack of wooden peg dolls off Etsy which turned up unbelievably quickly! so all that was next was to draw out the designs, screw in a mini eye hook pins and get messy with some paint…

Here’s they are finished and on my tree…

I really enjoyed doing this and everyone seemed to really like them (including my Manager’s boys phew!) and no one seemed to mind too much that the snowman looked like a Doctor Who baddie!  I even had time to make a Buffy peg doll for Blondie

I still seem to have quite a lot left over any suggestions on what to make next!?
