I am not a mom who spends too much time crafting. While I don’t mind getting some fun crafts into our homeschool each month, I have to be honest that I don’t always enjoy them when we do. Let’s just say I’m more of a cooking, baking, photography and graphic design gal who loves to be active with my family. However, I have to say, that our family had so much fun making this monster sock puppet, myself included!
DIY Monster Sock Puppet Tutorial
Cut cardboard circle that will fit in your sock for the mouth and fold in half.
Trace the circle twice onto your piece of felt, cut out, and glue to both sides of the cardboard.
Cut the toe off the end of your sock, roll the edges around the felt covered cardboard, and hot glue in place to make your mouth.
For back spines, cut two long strips of felt and hot glue half of it together, leaving two flaps.
Separate flaps and hot glue to back of the sock.
Decorate as you desire, we added extra pom pom balls and a felt bow tie.
