monster sock puppet

I have a really fun project for you today!  This simple and quick monster sock puppet tutorial is sure to kick some summer boredom to the curb.  At least for a little while! 😉  Heck, it keeps me entertained for a while!  Sienna thinks he’s pretty cool too, even though she can’t quite figure out how to open and close the mouth. This craft is perfect if you’re on a budget.  I found everything at the dollar store!

Here’s how to make a Monster Sock Puppet:

SUPPLIES

  • 1 pair of fuzzy socks
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Googly eyes
  • Pom Pom balls
  • Felt
  • Cardboard

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cut a cardboard circle that will fit in your sock for the mouth and then fold in half.
  2. Trace the circle twice onto your piece of felt, cut out, and glue to both sides of the cardboard.
  3. 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.
  4. Hot glue googly eyes to 2 pom pom balls and glue above mouth for eyes.
  5. For back spines, cut two long strips of felt and hot glue half of it together, leaving two flaps.
  6. Separate flaps and hot glue to back of the sock.
  7. Decorate as you desire, we added extra pom pom balls and a felt bow tie.
