Create your own vulture or buzzard felt hand puppet. 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:
• Vulture Puppet Pattern PDF
• 3 black felt sheets
• 1 pink felt sheet
• 1 white felt sheet or scraps
• 1 orange felt sheet or scraps
• Glue (Hot glue, Fabric Tac or any glue that works with felt)
How to Make the Vulture 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 wings, head and collar.
Glue the eyes, pupils, beak and beak tip. Cut small white circles or squares and glue to pupils as gleams.
