I have had a love for fairy-tales for as long as I can remember. They still influence
my art, and I am always pushing them on my children! (they went as Little Red Riding hood and the Big bad
wolf for Halloween a few years ago.)
So after seeing the adorable peg ninjas Sarah made last week, and this cute link she shared with me,
it was quite natural that I would make these;
I just used the simple wooden pegs you can find at any craft store, and painted them
with acrylic paint, also a little bit of Sharpie marker for some details. I used craft glue to add
some felt details on the wolf. Felt ears, muzzle, tail, and some fur on his chest, cut with pinking shears.
I screwed those little picture hanging loops into the tops of the heads first, and strung some cute
rik rak so they can hang around their necks.
You could also shorten the string, and it makes a really cute little
character to hang on their backpack for older kids.
Cute and portable!
I wonder how many other characters we could come up?
