Step by Step Instructions

1 Make the mouth
2 Give your puppet some eyes
3 Decorate your puppet
4 Give your puppet hair
5 Add arms to your puppet
  • Step 1. Make the mouth

    First, get a piece of coloured foam and draw a mouth shape on it. Your mouth can be happy sad or however you like it. Glue the mouth on your paintbrush at the bottom of the metal piece. 

  • Step 2. Give your puppet some eyes

    Now, get some googly eyes or rhinestones and glue them to your puppet above its mouth as eyes.

  • Step 3. Decorate your puppet

    Glue different decorations onto your puppet to make it look any way you like.

  • Step 4. Give your puppet hair

    Dip the bristles in some craft glue and then dip it in some glitter to give your puppet some cool spiky hair. 

  • Step 5. Add arms to your puppet

    Once the glue is dry on your decorations, take a pipe cleaner and twist it around the neck of the paintbrush to make some arms. Bend the ends of the pipe cleaner to make some hands and now your puppet is ready for show time!
