Ready for Thanksgiving this year? How about making your very own felt turkey hand puppet using our free pattern. Very simple to make – just cut felt and glue together. You could hand sew it too, if you wanted.
What you’ll need:
• Turkey Puppet Pattern PDF
• 2 tan felt sheets
• 1 red felt sheet
• 1 orange felt sheet
• 1 white felt sheet or scraps
• 1 black felt sheet or scraps
• Glue (Hot glue, Fabric Tac or any glue that works with felt)
How to Make the Turkey Felt Hand Puppet:
Trace the body pattern on top tan felt sheet with crayon.
Pin the top tan felt sheet to bottom tan 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 inner tail to the outer tail.
Glue the tail to the back of the body. To keep the arms free to move, don’t glue the arms to the tail.
Glue the beak, wattle, eyes, pupils and gleams into place.
