Each year I try to make my boys a special handmade gift for the holidays. Something that only they have…something unique.
This year I got the idea of hand painting blank nesting dolls for the boys, adorning them with their favorite characters. Little Guy is obsessed with Superheroes, so I painted his favorites on some blank nesting dolls, like the ones you can find on Amazon or Etsy.
As a child, I received a set of nesting dolls from my uncle and aunt, and they remained a favorite gift all through young adulthood. While I was at college they got misplaced, but I still think about how lovely they were!
I outlined my design on the nesting dolls first, then painted them in with acrylic paint. Details were added with a black Sharpie.
Once they were all dry, I sprayed them with clear spray coat.
Now all I need to do is wrap them up. Do you think Little Guy will like them?
