Take a trip to Salem to see the Sanderson Sisters with these DIY Hocus Pocus Clothespin Dolls!
What you’ll need:
- Wooden Clothespins
- Tulle fabric
- Pom Pom Maker
- Twine or String
- Sharpie markers (Black, Red, Pink)
Step 1: Begin by painting the clothes and hair onto the clothespins. Let dry completely.
Step 2: While the dolls are drying, begin to make your tutu skirts by twirling some tulle fabric around your pom pom maker. You only need 1 layer, just enough to cover it.
Step 3: Cut the tulle down the middle using a sharp pair of scissors.
Step 4: Wrap twine or string around the middle, just as you would a pom pom, but only make a single knot.
Step 5: Carefully remove the tulle from the pom pom maker and use your finger as a place holder inside the center.
Step 6: Insert the clothespin into the hole where your finger was.
Step 7: Tighten the first knot and then double knot to secure to the doll.
Step 8: Adjust the tulle on your DIY Hocus Pocus Clothespin Dolls to your liking and hot glue the underside to keep it in place.
Step 9: Trim any excess tulle with scissors.
Step 10: Create the hair by hot-gluing shaped card stock to the top of the head.
Step 11: Wrap the cardstock piece with the appropriate color yarn. Using hot glue to secure along the way.
Step 12: Use the marker to add eyes and a mouth to you DIY Hocus Pocus Clothespin Dolls.
Now your DIY Hocus Pocus Clothespin Dolls are done and ready for your babe’s haunted doll house!
