If you have been with me for a while, you know I LOVE peg dolls! I try to work them into my parties any way I can. This pirate party was no exception.
I wanted to give each child a peg doll, but didn't want to take the time to paint them. I found the perfect solution!!! THIS ETSY SHOP will send you a whole sheet of printable peg dolls for $3! They were the perfect solution!
So, I bought some peg dolls, and got to work.
I painted the heads first.
Once I wrapped the bodies, I decided it would loo good to paint the clothing on top, matching the lines and colors of the printable wrap.
We had three girls coming to the party, so I asked Dora, the shop owner if she could make girl printable clothes, and she said yes! By the way, I love this shop owner. She is so talented and so nice. I feel like we have become friends through this process, and we have never even met in person. She is amazing. Thank you Dora! Anyway, here is a link to her bog, where she offers the girl pirate clothing wraps. Link to her blog GIRL PIRATE CLOTHING WRAPS.
The party favors turned out daring in the girl version as well.
Now, on to the gift bag. I just used a sandwich bag. I filled it with sand from the home improvement store, then I added mini shells, beads and jewels that I already had. I ask added a cute treasure chest. I got a pack of 12 of these from Zurchers for $2.99. After filling the bag, close it, cut the topper out, and staple to the bag. Punch a hole
My son had a ton of fun playing with his set. I also made him a little wooden pirate playset with my scroll saw.
I have two versions of the topper. You can do one with the peg doll, and one without, if you are unable to make them.
