Christmas Character Finger Puppets

Today I am happy to be able to share with you some simple and fun Christmas Crafts for kids…and well…anyone!

Yesterday was a bad day! Nothing too serious, but I was all to happy to crawl into bed last night and end that very long, no good, very bad day. You guys know the kind I am talking about right?


{I shared some of this and a pic with my FB fans last night}Long story short…Post Office, stubbed my toe (the same toe every.stinking.time), had to unpick and redo a sewing project, spilled soup inside my sparkling clean fridge and on newly mopped floors…but perhaps the worst was when I dropped my camera and BUSTED my favorite lens…BOO!

I know things could be much worse and these are just trivial things, but do you ever sometimes want to crawl back in bed and just check out for a little while? Good thing the hubs came home and recognized my need for a little S P A C E! Now I feel much better and ready to face a new day.

Anyways…just had to share…

on a much happier note…I have something fun to share with you…Christmas Finger Puppets.

As you know, I have a hard time sitting still and watching tv or a movie without keeping my hands busy. Drives my family crazy sometimes. So, the other night, while the family was watching Shrek 4 (which we loved), I whipped up these little guys.

And since Christmas is all about giving, I thought I would share the patterns with you.

These would be fun little gift for the little kids in your life. Or to go along with some of your favorite Christmas books or movies.

They are pretty quick to make and all you need are a few scraps of felt, hot glue and google eyes, and you are on your way.

    Sorry about your crappy day (year, right?!) And hopefully your toe isn't broken. Sounds funny but my husband actually broke his toe just by stubbing it! He didn't know it was broken for several months and ended up needing surgery and pins and stuff. Anyway, I'm seriously so sad about your camera, gives you the sinking feeling in your stomach.

    Hope you have a better day soon and ps these puppets are super cute!

    Thanks! These are so, so cute. But when I go to download the patterns it says Forbidden. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks again for sharing!
