Guest blogger here, Steph Low – proud sister in law to the other Stephanie…Patino! While Mrs. Patino takes a brief break from her blogging duties, I thought I would throw this out there for the world wide web to see!
Just a quick little tutorial on adorable popsicle stick dolls!
I originally found the idea on Pinterest and really they are pretty much the same as the ones I found, but I went wild and made dozens of them!! I have gifted them, lost many of them, made ones to look like neighbor kids I know… I even have one for each member of my family! Next I plan on making one for members of our extended family – grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, etc.
My three year old daughter loves them! But my little one year old does too, just taking them out of their jar and making a mess with them is a thrill! Heck, even my six year old boy loves to play with them!
I use the thicker popsicle sticks from Michael’s, and washi tape but I think good old fashioned markers and crayons and colored pencils would do the trick just right! Or even colored paper, cut down to size and mod podged on. get creative. You can now find washi tape at office supply stores, Michael’s and even Wal-Mart! I started my collection years ago and was paying twice as much and could only find them online. So go hunt for some and start your collection!
Draw a face and hair and then strap some tape on it!
Over the time that I have been making these I have lost so many of them! But this is what I have left! I love my little stick doll fashionista army!
