Wooden Doll Makeover

Back over the summer when we put together the cardboard dollhouse, we also made a little wooden family to live in it. Well over the past few months, the family (as well as the house, actually) have begun to look a bit unkempt. So I decided to give the whole family a much needed make over. They originally had fabric scraps for clothes. It was very cute when they were first completed, but months of my girls playing with them...well, let's just say that they looked unloved. I figured painting clothes for them would be much more durable in the long run. You can see a few pictures of what the family used to look like in their home here. We will do some house and furniture touch ups some other day.

I love the little old fashion butt flap on the back on the triplets' pajamas (not that my kids have any idea what those are).

A VERY short Grandma and Grandpa (or a very tall Mom and Dad). I told them that sometimes we shrink as we get older (tee hee).

  1. These are so cute. I am going to see if I can get my husband to make us some out of clothes pins. He is the artist I am not good at! But those little wooden people you made are great for all my age groups right now.
