We are following up our witch peg dolls with these equally spooky Halloween characters! Our set of Halloween peg dolls includes a vampire, skeleton, mummy and black cat. The witch peg dolls included a lot of extra details like the brooms and the hair braids, but these Halloween peg dolls are a bit simpler to craft. Just like the witches, the basic materials that you need for these peg dolls are wool blend felt, paint and unfinished wooden doll bodies.
We found our wooden doll bodies online, and I added a link for you in Shop this Project. The main colors of felt that you will need for this project is white and black. You should be able to find your felt in any local craft store. For the mummy in particular you will need a thin cotton fabric, but you could also use gauze for a similar look. Download the printable instructions for a full list of materials for your Halloween peg dolls. Once you have your materials ready, print the PDF template. Cut out each piece as a guide for cutting your felt pieces. When you are finished cutting the felt, use your trusty hot glue gun to assemble the characters.
Follow the step-by-step photo tutorial below as you craft your peg dolls. Get your kids in on the fun with this afternoon crafty activity! Our Halloween peg dolls look adorable styled on a mantel or entryway table for the holiday. They are also a great alternative to candy if you want to hand them out to your trick-or-treaters.
