Dyeing Wooden Eggs Tutorial Video

We sell tons of unfinished wood eggs but wondered at how to color/decorate them.  There’s many different ways to do it.

I thought this video was a good one.  It shows how to dye wood eggs and then uses a butcher block conditioner to provide a nice smooth surface (dye can rub off).  Take a look.  I can personally attest to the quality of that particular wood butcher block conditioner shown in the video, I use it for cutting boards myself…

The eggs shown in the video looks to be similar to our standing wood hen egg which has a flat base so it can stand up. Great for decorations but not so great for egg rolls.  These wood eggs are better for egg rolls…  (link at the end is to the White House’s egg roll website)

Animals for Peg Dolls to ride on

In my ad work, I came across phrases that referred to animals for peg dolls to ride on.  I wondered what this was.  Looked around and found this interesting article.

Take a look.  You can print out templates then trace them out on a nice pine wood board and cut away.  Sand a bit then now you have animals for peg dolls to ride on!  Paint or varnish is optional.  If the animal is large enough, you could add wheels to it!

It’s an interesting alternative to the usual toy cars or trucks for the wood peg dolls.

Making dancing doll pins with magnets

While going thru my Google Ad results and looking at keywords used in searches, I came across a phrase that went like this:  “peg doll magnet dyi”.  I had to look online to see what this meant.  Came across this video.  This video uses our wood doll pins but it does work with the wood people pegs, particularly the smaller ones.  I just tested our magnets on top of a 3/4″ thick wood shelf.  Works surprisingly well, especially if the magnets are doubled at the bottom (below the shelf or table).
