PEG DOLL MORDECAI ON HORSE

Mordecai was given a horse and crown by King Xerxes (Esther 6:8)

TO MAKE THE HORSE:

Copy the pattern on card stock for the horse’s body and head. Paint and cut out.

  1. Glue the horse’s head to the body.
  2. Paint the clothespin “legs” and clip to the horse.
  3. Glue on yarn for the mane and a googly eye.
  4. Make a tail from a narrow strip of cardstock and add yarn for the tip of the tail.

TO MAKE THE PEG DOLL:

  1. Cut off 1.25″ (3 cm) from the bottom of the peg. Lightly sand the rough edges. Paint the doll.
  2. Cut out the pattern for the hair and crown and glue it on to the head according to the photograph.
  3. Add an eye with felt pen. Place the doll on the horse.
  4. To make the reins, glue on a length of yarn or embroidery floss to make it look as though Mordecai is holding on to them.
