I saw these wooden dolls and fell in love. One of my sisters is moving away, and I wanted to make her a little doll family to help decorate for the holidays, since she won't be able to come home for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Wooden blocks (I got mine from the 'wood' aisle at Hobby Lobby)
Pom Poms (optional)
Instead of wood blocks purchased from Home Depot, I used wood blocks from my local Hobby Lobby:
Using the original article's advice, I also purchased some e-6000 glue.
I arranged the blocks until I got the shape I wanted, then glued them down. Then I started painting!
Here's the 'mom' up close.
Some little extra fuzzballs I had got incorporated into the project.
I really admire the colors and patterns of the original poster, but my paintbrushes weren't fine enough for that level of detail, so I stuck to my big blocky colors. I love my little family and would consider making more in the future.
Total time: 4 hours.
