Felt Finger Puppets


I first laid eyes on these cute little creatures over at The Idea Room. There you will find a great step by step tutorial on how to easily make your own felt finger puppets.

There is really nothing to it. I didn't even use a pattern or template. I just started cutting felt in different animal shapes and used goggle eyes.


Make sure you cut out two body shapes with enough room for your finger and approx. 1/2 inch around to hot-glue the pieces together. But leave the bottom part un-glued.
Note: If the puppet has ears (i.e hippo, tiger, cow) sandwich them between the two body shapes and then glue together.

hot-glue the body parts on. 


It's really that simple!

I can't decide which one I like best...
It might be a 3-way tie between the lion, hippo and owl :o)

Check back tomorrow to see our finger puppet theater!!
