Dolly Pegs!!

I have been thinking about what else I can make for daughters school Christmas fair, then I thought dolly pegs!!!

I asked my mother in law whilst in England to pick some up for me as I couldn't find any in France and a big thank you to her as she went everywhere trying to find some.
So my idea was to make little angels.

I have covered my peg in glitter and added some organza material to make the skirt. I then used a friends die to make the wings from glitter card and added some embroidery thread for the hair.

I added some ribbon to hang the angel from the tree and a little gem to make it look like she is wearing a necklace.

I think they are really cute and really cheap to make.

Here is a picture of them hanging in my daughters pink tree which I said she could have for her room.

This project is for the challenge at Its all about the Vintage and you had to use glitter, I just hope that dolly pegs are classed as something from the past!!!
