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.
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).
For today’s blog post I’m going to show you what the wood people peg dolls look like with hats made for dolls. We have hats made from straw and black felt materials. The smallest straw hat – the 2″ version – seems to work the best of all. The smallest black felt hat is a bit too large but may work well if you add hair to the peg doll.
Check them out below!

I really like the 2″ straw hats for the people peg dolls! Looks great to me.
That’s right… we have mini wood flower pots. Add these to the top of the wood people peg dolls and you get pilgrims! Paint the flower pots black. Or you can paint them in any colors – there are conical helmets in history… Excellent for soldiers.

The flower pots can be glued on directly to the heads but if handled lots… would be more durable to drill a small hole in the head then glue in a short dowel, wrap that with cloth, cotton, etc… then glue the flower pot onto that. All flower pots have a 3/16″ hole in the bottom… perfect for our 3/16″ short dowels. Some drilling will need to be done (hole size varies slightly on the flower pots).
While going thru my wood people peg accessories project… I found out that the wood doll pin stands (used with the doll pins) can be used with the people pegs. Some are especially nice – even looks like a dress in some cases… Some can look like a crown. I only used the angled style wood doll pin stands in the pictures because… I forgot about the rounded style!
Take a look at the pictures to see how they look like. Hover the cursor over each picture to read the comments. The first one is my favorite one – #1002 wood girl peg doll with the #3075B-A wood angled doll pin stand. That one looks interesting and could work as a nice game piece!
