Easter decoration and gift ideas without chocolate

It can be hard to find Easter decoration and gift ideas without chocolate, but here at Doli Dwt we’ve got you covered!

Following the success of my robin and penguin baubles over the last two years, I decided to bring a bit of that bird-based love to Easter, by creating these cute little Easter Chick baubles!

They make a great alternative to chocolate as a little gift for Easter. They will last a lot longer too! If would like to gift them to someone outside of your own home, I can send them straight to your recipient, with a personalised note, to try to help those who are social distancing or in isolation this year.

They are perfect for hanging from an Easter tree. Alternatively, you could pop them onto an indoor Easter wreath, or string them along your mantelpiece or a shelf. How about popping them around a napkin as a pretty place setting for you Easter lunch?

Each little Easter decoration has, as always at Doli Dwt, been through my unique process. Wood burning and colouring by hand using pencil and a spot of paint is at the heart of each and every one of my creations.

Each one sports a bow tie or hair bow in a pretty pastel shade. The little chicks are peeking out of cracked shells that are decorated with pastel polka dots. Hanging from pretty bakers twine, they are the perfect addition for your Easter decorations or spring decor.

I also have a few of my Easter bunny peg dolls in stock too. Again, they are a perfect alternative gift to chocolate. Both these and the chick decorations are available in the web shop.

New Year – New Name!

Happy 2019 Peg Dolls fans!

We’re delighted to be back to work creating beautiful personalised peg dolls for you to treasure.

You may have noticed a few little changes around here! Our business is now called Doli Dwt. It’s a new name, but we promise the same lovely peg dolls, the same attention to detail and the same warm, friendly and personal service!

The name Pink Elephant Crafts served me well the past 15 years, whilst I dabbled in various arts and crafts. However, it was time to chose a name that fits with my peg dolls, whilst proudly reflecting our Welsh heritage.

I’d been mulling over (just in my head), about a re-brand to better represent what I do for about six months, when my mum serendipitously told me about a dream she had.

She dreamt that she visited our house one day, and lined up outside were life-sized versions of my peg dolls in all different costumes. Along side them was a sign saying “Ty Doli Bach”, which means “little doll house”.

This thought stuck with me and I played around with it in my head for a few days. I soon dropped the “house” in favour of “dwt” , which is Welsh slang for someone who is tiny or cute.

Little Doll….so perfect! Thank you Mum for the inspiration!

I also must take the time to thank you for a fantastic year in 2018. Each purchase; every like, comment or share on social media, has absolutely meant the world to Mr T and I. I love making my little peg dolls, and without you to make them for it would all be pretty pointless!

We had a brilliant Christmas market season – it was lovely to meet many of you in person across South Wales! It was also a thrill sending parcels to those of you (around the world) who bought items from our webshop too!

Our Nativity sets with the new addition of Kings, new Mr & Mrs Claus (pictured above) and of course those robin baubles, were extremely popular. Thank you for your amazing reaction to them all.
