Hi, i've recently been finding old baby dolls and creeping them up.  I just to one apart to use it's head a note "pad", just chalkboard painted the head.  But I was wanting to take the dolls limbs and turn them into wall hooks.  I was trying to decide on what would be best to fill them with and how to attach a screw of some sort.  So any opinions or suggestions would be great.  I was thinking of using that spray foam you use to seal stuff and gluing a screw on it but it didn't seem like it would be very secure.

These are the dolls i'm working on now, the bald one is the one I took apart for this project  Grin

I'd use plaster or concrete, and just set a screw head into it while it was wet.

I post all my crafty stuff on Facebook.  I'd LOVE if you'd like my page!

the spray foam wouldn't hold a screw in once you put weight on the object I reckon, Plaster of paris I would say. but you would have to make sure it is a long screw so that about half of the length of the screw embedded in plaster as that is not especially strong either..!

Always in need of supplies, especially fabric- let's do a personal swap. I'll craft in return for fabric (I am a fabric tart)


shop the swap, my shop
