The Case of the Missing “Groom” Clothespin Doll

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In May of this year, I posted my “Bride and Groom” clothespin dolls. The actual bride and groom loved these representations so much, they displayed them at their reception on the table next to their wedding cake.

While unpacking wedding gifts at their home, they discovered the bride doll was groomless on her stand. 😦

A big search ensued but after several weeks, the groom doll was no where to be found.

I felt so bad for the bride and groom, I told them I would make them another groom doll.  I also said as I use recycled materials, the doll would not be exactly the same as the original.  While remaking the groom, I decided not to make the dark lines around his eyes.

So here he is!

New Groom

Hair: Yellow feather from an old boa.

Suit Jacket: Old black ribbon wrapped around pipe cleaner.

White Shirt & Cuffs: Old white ribbon.

Slacks: Colored on with a black marker.


P.S. After the bride and groom returned from their honeymoon, the original groom doll was found wrapped in tissue paper amongst a box of wedding gifts. They still don’t know how the groom doll got separated from the bride doll on their stand but they are happy he was found.

    Well done. You’re so sweet to make another doll for them. I know they’ll treasure the dolls for life. 🙂
