When we were asked to be part of this series, we knew exactly what we were going to post about.  We were recently asked to make ornaments for a group of young girls who were participating in the Nutcracker ballet as sugar plums, so we knew this would work perfectly.  We had already decided that we would be making peg doll snow globe ornaments.  Here is how we made them…

Step Three.  Paint pink ballet shoes on the bottom of the wooden spool.  You will then paint pink hair on the top and begin the process of painting the face.  I used a toothpick to dot on the two eyes and to swipe a pretty red smile.  To finish up, I used the back of the paint brush to dot on some sweet pink cheeks.

Step Four.  Now it is time to add a little sparkle to our doll!  I simply glittered where I had painted the hair with a beautiful strawberry pink fine glitter.  Once it dried, I painted the entire peg doll with the triple thick sealer.

Step Five.  I then added a little tulle dress with red rhinestones at the top and glued a small banner to the front of the dress.  I also put a little tuft of tulle and a gold gem for her hat.  To finish up the ornament, I simply glued the doll to the bottom of one side of the ornament and added the snow and closed the ornament. It was finished off with a beautiful red bow.
