Make your own String Voodoo Dolls!

Okay...let's start with a disclaimer.
I did this project with my 10 and 8 year old kids.
I thought this would be a fun kid craft...but it turned out
to be a little harder than anticipated...
so I ended up doing all the wrapping...
and they came in to decorate.

This would be a fun gift for kids to give their friends!
Funny little stocking stuffers too!

Step 1: What you'll need...

So here is what you'll need:
Pipe cleaners
Wooden Bead or ball (ours are balls with a hole half way through it)
Embroidery floss
School glue
Hot glue
<p>How long does it take the glue to dry in each step?</p>
<p>Wow, super cool!!</p>
<p>i didnt have a wooden ball or bead so i made my head out of piipecleaner and just wrapped it around a bunch of times and it worked great!</p>
What size beads do you need

The yellow smiley face one is my favorite - so cute. About how much embroidery floss did you need for one doll?
Oh, good question! I used about 2 full things of floss. One for the body and one for the head. Thanks!
This is cool, I think even I could do it!
Thanks, and yes, I am sure you could do it! Part of their charm is they aren't super perfect--easy! :)
These are awesome! Well done! (I voted for ya, good luck!)
Thanks! We had so much fun...I kind of wish I didn't make them with my kids, I could have put them in their stockings! Oh well! :) fun all year!
Oh man, those would have been great stocking stuffers! They would make super cute gift tags for gifts as well! WOOT! I can now vote for you and did so, good luck!
I got ahead of myself I went up to make the vote after I posted and you aren't listed yet, no worries as soon as they put you in, you have my vote. :)
Awesome! They kind of remind me of these little worry dolls I used to have :)
Thanks again! Just your comment brought back 20 year old memories of those worry dolls! So cool in elementary school! :)
I love the little gnome! These remind me of the worry dolls I had as a kid. Very cute. :D
Thanks! I totally forgot about worry dolls...I made a hair barrette with them when I was 11! Awesome, I should do some of them! :)
