10 Super Adorable DIY Puppets ...


Our post on handmade sock toys was popular so we are giving you a list of equally adorable creatures: DIY Puppets!

Some of these DIY puppets will actually require the use of socks.2

Others, however, can be made using felt, scrap fabrics, and other materials.2

These DIY puppets have one thing in common, though.

They are all stinkin' cute!

1. Sock Monster

Look at this little cutie!

To make a sock puppet monster, you will need colorful socks (the longer and fuzzier, the better), felt, hot glue, cardboard, and pom poms.

You will need the pom poms to create the eyes so white ones will be perfect.

Of course, red eyes will do, too.

2. Stuffed Animal

This DIY puppet idea will not require you to assemble the toy from square one.

From the blog: This is a project you can do sitting on your couch, and without fancy-schmancy equipment!
