DIY Russian Stacking Dolls
As some of you may remember, I love Russian stacking dolls and have had previous posts about them. Unfortunately I don't have too many of them because they can be pricey, especially if they are vintage. So, the other day I was in Hobby Lobby and happened to look down the unfinished wood section when lo and behold, they had one set of "paint it yourself" stacking dolls. They were only 6.99, but I had a 40 % off coupon, so they ended up costing around 4.00! Nice!
I have been painting them over the last few days and realized that it is pretty time consuming to decorate all 6 of them. I finished them today and think that they look nice and festive and want to buy more blank sets to make as Christmas gifts. I am sure that it will get a little easier to paint the more I practice as I found it challenging to put the little details on the faces of the smaller the dolls.
I had no idea how they would come out as I rarely paint, but I have enjoyed doing it and look forward to doing it again!
and...I have been doing the Leslie Sansone 4 quick Miles dvd in my nicely air conditioned house so I have no fun pictures of morning walks to share :(
