Little Girl Garland

I saw this garland on Pinterest and knew I had to make it.  It's from Two Succulent Sisters blog.

Here's how I made mine...


I started by painting the clothes pins with hair, a shirt and shoes.

Next, I hot glued hair on top of each clothespin.

I braided two of the dolls and put the other two with pigtails.  I put a little bow made out of material on top of the ones where I braided their hair.

Next I cut 4 circles out of material.  I cut a little slit in the middle of each circle and slide the clothespin in and hot glued the skirt on.

Then I cut a length of wire and formed a loop on one end for hanging.  I threaded a few buttons on and then glued a doll, a few more buttons another doll and so forth. 

To glue the dolls on, I used some wood hearts I had left over from another project.  I just put a big dollop of glue on the heart, laid the wire over it and then stuck the doll on top.

Finally, I ripped some material into strips and tied it on the wire.

I plan to use this garland in MK's room and maybe at some birthday parties as well.
