Hey DIY-ers! We have a super fun project for you today: puppets! We’ve found you 40 DIY puppet projects to try – whether you are a brand new beginner or a more advanced DIY-er.
One of the best things about being a crafter or DIY-er is being able to make things for your family and friends. Here you can make puppets that will make your kids and grandkids grin from ear to ear. Whether you like to sew, knit or are looking for no-sew projects, there is something here you will enjoy creating.
Be sure to take a look at some of the terrific storybook themed puppets such as Little Red Riding Hood. These are great to tell a little one a story or fairytale with playtime. Your kids can be some of the puppets and the adults can be some of the puppets too. This makes the story even more memorable and entertaining.
We’ve also included a couple of puppet theatre DIY projects too. Because once you have puppets made, we know you will want a great theatre for them – and this is far simpler than one might think to create.
Don’t worry if you don’t know how to sew, knit or crochet. Lots of great puppets can be made with no-sew projects. You’ll find paper puppets too, some even made out of lunch bags, so you may have all of the DIY supplies ready on hand.
So let’s get started! Happy DIY-ing!
