Puppets, Finger Puppets, Hand Puppets And Puppets For Children

I discovered Floral Blossom on Etsy just a few months again and she has THE cutest felt finger puppet patterns EVER! They kill me. So dang lovely! I purchased a couple of her patterns last November so I might make some puppets for my youngsters for Christmas. I ended up giving the livestock set to my daughter’s preschool and saved the woodland creatures. They have been fun to make and tons of fun for us to play with! The cattle set initially had a donkey, however I made it into a horse by shortening the ears (and doing completely different colours).

After gluing the white head onto the pipe cleaner body, clip a tiny piece of orange pipe cleaner and bend it right into a V form, and glue it onto the middle of the face. Glue the two yellow mini pom poms proper above the beak to make a base for the googly eyes, then glue them on prime of them. Take about a 4 inch piece of additional yellow pipe cleaner and bend it into the wing form as shown. You don’t even want to attach these in, simply slip them onto the body in between the coils and they'll keep put. Spring Kitten Pipe Cleaner Finger Puppet

I discovered an easy shortcut for working with craft foam that is my new favorite trick! You’ll see in my picture that I embrace a plastic lid and sharpie marker in the provides, but it isn't what you think! I truly did not trace something to make this craft! I used the lid and the cap of the marker to press into the craft foam as an alternative http://www.fingerpuppetsinc.com of tracing any shapes! You could possibly do this with any cookie cutter or another shape you've got and it will make it A LOT easier to get just the correct form!

Dip your wooly finger into the bowl of sizzling, barely soapy water. Take away your wooly finger from the water and gently press the wool with the fingertips of your other hand, squeezing gently. Continue to re-moist and squeeze the wool until you are feeling the fibers grow to be entangled and you're feeling the material changing into firmer (you will notice this within a couple of minutes). When the fabric is very firm, submerge your wooly finger into the bowl of chilly (soapless) water to set the fibers and rinse. Remove excess water by gently squeezing your wooly finger. Rigorously remove the wool out of your finger.

Everyone seems to be joyful to see spring return after an extended winter.
