25 of the Best Clothespin and Peg Dolls

By Nicole Balch |

I’ve been making clothespin dolls lately. Have you ever tried? It’s a satisfying craft project because they’re so small that they come together really quickly, and you can make a million variations on them with just wooden pegs or clothespins, plus paint. Below are 25 of the best examples out there, some just for inspiration and some that you can purchase.

    You used to be able to buy these little peg people at almost any place in New England, along with all sorts of little blank wooden objects. Thanks for bringing them back. They look like more fun than plastic weebles. Ann
