Felt Halloween Finger Puppets

Have no fear, I still have a soft spot for felt...and to prove it, I decided it was time to make some Halloween inspired finger puppets made out of FELT!


First up, Bony of Bony and Clyde, though Clyde has seen better days. 


Using the pattern below, cut 2 sections of the body out of black felt.  Cut the bones out of white felt.  Glue the bones to the front of the body.  If you want to make a Bony, give her a felt flower...if you prefer making a Clyde, leave the flower off.  Doing a straight stitch, with black thread, sew the skeleton bodies together, leaving the bottom open.


Next is Shadow.  Beware, he's tried to cross my path a few times, he is intent on bringing me bad luck.


Using the pattern below, cut 2 sections of the cat body out of black felt.  Cut 2 eyes out of yellow felt.  Cut the thinnest strands of white felt for the whiskers.  Glue the eyes and whiskers into place.

Cut a black pipe cleaner in half.  Curl one end of the pipe cleaner.  Fold the other end of the pipe cleaner up about an inch and insert it into the right side of the cat body (pointing up, perpendicular to the side).

Doing a straight stitch, sew the front of the cat body to the back of the cat body, secure a few sideways stitches over the pipe cleaner. Make sure to leave the bottom of the cat open.

*The pipe cleaner is bent up to avoid little fingers getting poked or scratched by the end of the pipe cleaner. 


Last but not least, Bernard the ghost.  Not all ghosts need to be scary, some can be formal.


Using the pattern below, cut 2 sections of the ghost body out of white felt.  Cut the eyes and mouth out of black felt.  Go crazy and select whatever color bow tie you want.  Glue the eyes and the mouth into place.  I secured the center of my bow tie into place with a French Knot, you could opt to glue if you prefer.  Sew the front of the ghost body to the back of the ghost body, leaving the bottom open.


These Halloween finger puppets have even found a house to haunt.


I hope after Halloween is over, they peacefully move out. 


The dollhouse does not need another set of squatters.  Those lalaloopsies moved in a few months ago and we haven't been able to evict them yet.  Bony, Shadow and Bernard haven't even scared them away.

    I also love that the ghost's name is Bernard. Is he a touch French?
