Nothing says Christmas quite like a beautiful nativity scene, and my DIY Nativity version remains one of my all time favorite craft projects.
What better way than to make an ornament, combining a wooden peg doll with an acorn cap! (Here’s a post on how I prepare acorn for crafts.)
We’re on Day 7 of The 30 Days of Ornaments Project, where we will make 30 handmade ornaments over the next 30 days.
Today, we are combining an acorn cap with a wooden peg doll, and turning it into a darling DIY acorn peg doll ornament!
Here’s how to make one!
Day 7: How to Make an Acorn Peg Doll Ornament
(All 30 of the handmade ornaments can be found here, along with links to their videos and supply lists.)
DIY Acorn Peg Doll Christmas Ornament
Step 1. Gather supplies.
- Wooden Peg Doll – Dad Doll size
- Acorn Cap
- Fabric Scrap
- Printable Pattern for Nativity Set Clothing (A FREE download in the Mama Makers Club Resource Library)
- Leather Scrap for Belt
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Step 2. Print out the free downloadable pattern for the Nativity or Holy Family peg doll clothing, from The Mama Makers Club FREE Resource Library.
Step 3. Cut fabric to size.
Step 4. Hot glue fabric to body of peg doll.
Step 5. Tie on leather belt. Knot to secure.
Step 6. Glue on acorn cap to head of peg doll.
Step 7. Cut 12″ piece of twine. Fold in half and knot.
Step 8. Glue twine hanging string to back of peg doll.
Step 9. Inspect and hang!
The result is the cutest rustic acorn peg doll ornament, which somehow reminds me of Robin Hood or some other forest dweller.
These peg doll ornaments can be customized using whatever type of fabric and string you want, and since the wooden peg doll bodies come in multipacks, you will be able to make a whole bunch!
