DIY peg dolls are one of those classic craft projects that will always be a great and easy kids’ craft. We have come up with various designs for different holidays over the years, and these witch peg dolls are the perfect way to get ready for the Halloween season. Not only do they make cute Halloween decor, but your kids can keep playing with them after the holiday is over.

Everything you need for this super cute felt project is linked below. Then just download our template and tutorial to start crafting!


Which Witch Peg Doll Do You Love?

We chose a few different colors of felt, embroidery floss, and roving wool to give each witch their own unique look. You can easily customize your witch peg dolls by switching up the colors you use, styling their hair in new ways, or creating other little accessories for them. Our tutorial will show you how to make tiny brooms for them, but you could also craft some small felt pumpkins, a cauldron, or whatever else you imagine!

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tip: Use the extra peg doll bodies for more projects, like our dracula, mummy, skeleton and cat!
