These adorable Pipe Cleaner Dancing Princesses are so simple to make. Not only do they make the most adorable decorations but they are also the perfect puppet/doll for imaginary play.
My girls love using them to act out stories and plays. There’s something wonderfully tactile about them. The simple elegance and lack of features allows them to truly engage in their own ‘make believe’ world.
cotton pipe cleaners (15cm or 30cm), napkins (plain or patterned), cotton and maybe a pair of scissors
1. Bend both pipe cleaners in half and twist the top of one to make a head. Wrap the second pipe cleaner around the first to form a small body and arms, twisting at the back to tie off.
5. Insert the pipe cleaner body into the napkin arms first. And finally, tie some cotton around the middle to define the waist and your princess if complete.
