These cute little dolls are based off a set of directions on page 96 in the June 2012 Crafts ‘n Things magazine, and the design is by Linda Valentino.  It was titled ‘toothpick dolls’.

Labeled under the “kids’ crafts” section, my 6-year old was able to help out in a lot of the components of these little dolls, and probably wouldn’t admit that he actually played with them for a little bit!

Read on to see how we made these sweet little toy dolls.  I estimate these two could be done less than an hour and a half, including glue drying time.
