diy {storage house for peg dolls}


My kids like painting peg dolls and playing with them. We’ve got quite the growing collection of ones given to them, ones I’ve painted and ones they’ve painted (the one pictured is from Once Upon A Peg). I was at Hobby Lobby recently and thought these little cardboard houses would be a perfect fit for playing and storing some of the dolls.

I used Decoupage and scrap fabric to cover the house. I cut and glued, cut and glued until it was all covered.

For the windows and door, I covered the whole base in fabric and decoupage. The decoupage made the fabric hard so it was easier to cut the holes out. I used an X-acto knife to cut out the window and door holes.2.15pegdollhouse-032.15pegdollhouse-05While I worked on the house the kids painted peg dolls and pictures.2.15pegdollhouse-08He made a ninja.2.15pegdollhouse-072.15pegdollhouse-06

I think these would be really fun gifts to make for friends…it looks like I need to go stock up on houses from Hobby Lobby.2.15pegdollhouse-09 2.15pegdollhouse-112.15pegdollhouse-12

  • a - are these the paper macho houses. I could find them but only in a set of 3 Large Med and small. Does that sound right. HL is a looong drive so I just want to make sure I am getting the right thing. So cute.

  • Jamie - Unless I’m mistaken and it’s another brand, I’m a bit jealous that you have Liberty of London scraps. That is the softest, most amazing fabric ever! Not to mention how pretty it is. I love this idea.

  • Laura in Sacto - Hobby Lobby here I come. The house is darling!

  • Gina - So cute!!! Your fabric makes it so sweet; I love the piece with lemons and cherries!!!!

  • Celeste - So cute! I just bought a peg people play set through etsy for my little girls yesterday so we’ll have to do this!

  • Diana - This is adorable! I especially love how you have the flowers right under the window like a flower box!

  • Mindie - Can you buy the peg people at Hobby Lobby too? This is adorable!

  • Jenny B. - So adorable! I love little houses!! I pinned a link to a peg doll kit the other day, and thought that would be a really fun project, but it seemed a little pricey (the kit included paint and brushes, so that’s probably why). Do you have a good source for the unpainted peg people?

  • Kate @ Songs Kate Sang - I agree! Awesome gift idea!

  • Jen - How cute is that! Peg dolls are a hit around here too so I think I’ll have to look for those cardboard houses. What a cute gift for friends.

  • Kiasa - I have been an avid instagram follower for awhile. I think this is my first visit to your blog–I’ve been meaning to stop by for months now. You inspire me so much. Not only are your photos amazing but your attitude and spirit are so full of love and goodness. It really shines through in all that you post. Thank you for sharing so much beauty!

  • Jessica Mennie - Oh I love this! This makes me want a little girl to spoil and be creative with so bad. I’ll do this with my little niece soon though. What a beautiful idea. X

  • natalie - ashley!!! THIS IS OUT OF CONTROL CUTE. love, love, love it!

  • Heather - I found myself at Hobby Lobby (LOVE THAT STORE) this weekend looking for some items when I saw the houses you have posted. We had a sick kiddo at home and needed a low key activity to pass the time so the houses just jumped into my cart! We did one with fabric and decoupaged with pieces of colorful paper on the other. They made the perfect little homes for a couple of clothes pins dolls we had made earlier in the year. Thanks for the inspiration and sanity saver.

  • Jenny B. - AshleyAnn – Thanks for the link! That looks like a great resource for lots of crafty stuff. 🙂

  • Melissa F - Those are really adorable. Thanks for sharing.
