PIPE CLEANER DOLLS
We love making things that can then be played with. These cute pipe cleaner and bead dolls are so easy to make and hours of fun to play with!
MATERIALS: Pipe cleaners, wooden beads (large ones for the head and smaller ones for the body), plastic straws or long beads and yarn.
Wrap some yarn around your hand or a piece of card, fold a pipe cleaner in half and trap the yarn in the middle. Push the ends of the pipe cleaner through the large bead, pull the bead to the top trapping the yarn.
Add a small bead to make your dolls neck and bend the pipe cleaner ends out to make the arms. Fold a second pipe cleaner in half and put it over one of the arms to make the body and legs.
Add beads to make the body.
Add beads and straws to make the arms and legs. Fold the ends of the pipe cleaners over to secure the last beads.
