Christmas paper dolly chain

014This is such a cute idea and a great project to enjoy with your littlepoppits. I adapted it from an extract to a gorgeous book Kirstie Allsopp Craft by Kirstie Allsopp.

Grab yourself:

  • 4 pieces of A4 sized paper
  • Pencil
  • scissors
  • double-sided sticky tape
  • Christmas doilies

How too:

  1. Fold a piece of paper in half, then in half again to make a concertina. Draw the outline of half a dolly, and cut it out.
  2. Repeat with remaining paper to end up with eight dollys and stick together with tape.
  3. Take a doilie and fold in half and then again. Cut along the folds to make four triangular dresses, snip the top and stick to your dolly.
  4. Take another doilie and snip off the lacy border. Fold into four equal pieces and stick to the back of your dolly to create wings.
  5. Add a little head-piece with any remaining scraps of doilie.
  6. using your pens draw on hair and faces.
  7. Staple a length of ribbon to each end and hang up.

Yay job done!

I got my christmas doilies from a charity shop, but you could use any doilie you can get your mitts on and jazz em up in christmasy ways!
