I make tiny gnomes and fairies using wooden pegs, acrylic paint, upcycled faux flowers and leaves, felt scraps, and yarn or roving wool. The wooden pegs are 2″ tall or shorter.
I have always liked these things:
- Cicely Mary Barker’s flower fairies.
- Fisher Price little people from the 1970s and 1980s
- Classic Strawberry Shortcake dolls
- Acorn caps, which always look like they ought to be worn by tiny people
Making peg dolls touches on all of the above.
