How to use PEGS!

We have made a few little Christmas characters out of wooden pegs and a few other basic materials.

Let’s start with the Christmas Angel.PegAngel

To make this, you will need:

  • Dolly Pegs
  • Fabric Cut-Offs
  • Assorted Ribon
  • Glue

Let’s start with choosing a material to make the angel’s dress, something white or sparkly always works well for an angel! Cut a small bit of the material and wrap it around the peg, just under the spherical top (the angel’s head) and hold in place with a piece of ribbon tied around the top. Form her wings with a piece of thin folded fabric and glue them to the back of her dress. Draw her face on the top of the peg with a fine felt tip pen and if you would like, add a few thread strands to give her hair.



For our Peg Reindeer, you will need:

  • Pegs x3
  • Festive Felt Pack
  • Festive Pom Poms
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue

For this quick and easy craft, from the felt, cut out an oval shape for its body, and cut out two rough antler shapes. Glue two of the pegs together, side by side then gluing the third peg to one of the sides, but higher up. Once the glue has dried and the pegs are firmly stuck together, you can stick on its felt body parts and it’s googly eyes and a bright red pom pom for the reindeer’s red nose to finish him off!



Lastly we have our Elf and Santa Pegs. These have been made in a similar style, so to make these you will need:

  • Pegs x 2
  • Festive Felt Pack
  • Festive Pom Poms
  • Paint
  • Pipecleaner
  • Glue

So start with, carefully cut shapes out of the felt for our Santa, we need a white beard and a red hat. Once these have been made, paint your pegs to look like Santa Claus himself and one of his trusted elves (look at the image above for guidance). Once the paint has dried, for the elf, attach a pompom to his head and use the pipe cleaner as a cosy scarf by coiling it around the peg. For the Santa, just glue on the felt pieces you previously cut out in the right position, and attach a white pom pom to the end of his hat.
