Create a spooky skeleton hand puppet for Halloween this year. This puppet makes a great base as a Day of the Dead puppet. You can use colored Sharpies to decorate it or even glue felt accents or accessories.
The puppet is very simple to make – just cut felt and glue together. You could hand sew it too, if you wanted.
What you’ll need:
• Skeleton Puppet Pattern PDF
• 2 black felt sheets
• 1 white felt sheet or scraps
• Glue (Hot glue, Fabric Tac or any glue that works with felt)
How to Make the Skeleton Felt Hand Puppet:
Trace the body pattern on top black felt sheet with crayon.
Pin the top black felt sheet to bottom black felt sheet so they stay together when you cut.
Cut the felt along the traced body line.
Glue the two layers of felt together around the edge keeping the bottom open for your hand.
Cut out all the felt features.
Glue the spine, skull, arms and lower mouth.
Glue the pupils, palms and fingers.
