Craft: Recycled Doll

This is a doll made by recycling items in my home. I took a piece of wood and stained and varnished it. Then glued the almost empty crochet thread to it. I gave it a light wash of paint. Any craft paint thinned with water will do.

Next I found the doll head and hands and attached them w/glue. A lace collar was added and fabric for arms. I finished it up w/a piece of trim fed through a wooden spool and added buttons for trim. Cheap easy and quick!
