Are these cute? I originally ordered a bunch of blank dolls for a party or kid project idea but Boo and I ended up making them all ourselves this weekend!
These pre-made muslin dolls come in a range of sizes and run about $2 to $6 a piece:

So many things you could do with the dolls…..Boo and I chose puffy paint:
First, I drew out a simple design with a disappearing ink pen:
I used puffy paint to draw out the design for each doll. First, the front was finished and allowed to dry:
Once the front is dry, I flipped each doll over to complete the back:

Making another doll:
One of the dolls I made into a monster:
I soaked the monster doll in a bowl of water first:
Once the doll was damp, I wrung it out well and started dabbing colors on:
Since the doll is damp the colors will bleed together easily:
All colors of the rainbow:
I put the doll in the sun to dry and sprinkled salt over it to give the paint a crystal effect:
Fun, easy dolls!
For the price, I think these dolls would be such a fun idea for a party craft: “Make Your Own Doll” Party
