Felt Peeps Finger Puppet Tutorial

Peeps.  They aren't just for Easter anymore. 

Learn to make these colorful felt Peeps finger puppets with this easy to follow tutorial.  Throw them in an Easter basket or make them just for fun. 


Grab some Peep colored felts.  Stick with the standard yellow or branch out with some fun colors.


Using this Peep pattern (found below):
Cut 2 Peeps per each 1 finger puppet you want to make.


Find coordinating colored thread and a needle (or use glue if you want to attempt a no-sew option)


And sew the two Peep sections together.  Remember to leave the base of your Peep unsewn.




Get some brown paint (any kind will do) and a pencil with an eraser. 


Dab your eraser into the brown paint and then dab onto the front of your Peeps to make the eyes and nose.


Once dried, enjoy your new Peeps finger puppet.


The question is, to Peep or not to Peep...I think it's obvious what the answer should be.


To Peep, of course.

  4. The felt version look as tasty as the real ones. Though honestly, I can only eat 2 of them now without gagging. I love the little peep that is peeking out from behind the puppets. Very whimsical!
