Peg monster craft

Unleash your creativity with this fun and engaging peg monster craft! Get ready to transform ordinary wooden pegs into adorable and unique creatures that will bring a burst of color and personality to your world. With just a few simple materials and a dash of imagination, you can create a whole family of peg monsters that are sure to delight both kids and adults alike.

You will need:

  • Wooden pegs (clothespins)
  • Yarn – for best affect use different textures and colours but any will do
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Googly eyes
  • Acrylic paints
  • Plastic beads
  • Gel pens
  • Tacky craft glue – regular glue usually isn’t strong enough to hold a yarn pom pom

How to:

  1. Paint your pegs in bright colours and allow to dry
  2. Wrap some yarn around your fingers. I’ve wrapped it around three of my fingers, but a child might need to wrap it around four. Once you have a nice sized bundle (no specific size, anything goes really) slide it off your fingers and tie a separate piece of yarn around the centre tightly in a double knot.
  3. Use your scissors to trim the looped ends on either end of the yarn bundle giving you a thin pom pom.
  4. Apply glue to the inside top of your peg, and stuff the bundle of yarn in so that the pom pom ends are sticking out like hair. Once the glue dries you will still be able to open and close the peg even with the yarn glued in there.
  5. Cut a pipe cleaner in half and poke it through the spring in the centre of the peg. Thread a plastic bead onto each end of the pipe cleaner to make hands and twist the pipe cleaner ends back around themselves so the beads stay in place.
  6. Glue either one or two googly eyes on the front, and draw a mouth with gel pen.
