DIY: Ramadan Doll Craft

We made this doll for a cousin of mine who returned from his first Umrah. It is a simple and can easily fit into the hands of your little ones for hours of play!

Your doll could be either male of female depending on preference. We thought it would be fun to dress our doll up in Ihram clothes. Alternatively you could dress yours up in a hijab/abaya.

What you need:
-Doll Pegs (easily available at Michaels Craft Stores)
-Peace/beige colored acrylic paint
-Dark brown colored acrylic paint
-1Sheet of white colored felt
-1 Sheet of any colored felt
-Single hole punch
-Glue gun

*I apologize in advance for the horrible quality pictures and lack of detailed step pictures, I only had my cell phone camera handy

Start by painting your doll peg, 2-3 coats should be enough

Paint on a beard and hair line using the brown paint. he hairline. Measure and cut strips of the white felt and glue them on using the hot glue gun 

We used a colored sheet of felt to wrap around the peg doll in place of a sleeping bag. We punched holes on the side and used yarn to keep the bag in place. We also used a long piece of yarn so that the doll could be used as a necklace
