Make your own dragon puppet!


  • Step 1
    To make the dragon's back fins—use scissors to cut out two pieces of felt, each measuring 2.5 x 5.5". Use "Tacky" Glue to glue both pieces of felt together, leave 1" unglued along the edge of each piece. Cut out fin shapes from the glued half of the felt.
  • Step 2
    Fold back the unglued edges, apply glue and adhere the felt to the canvas puppet so that the fins stand straight up. Cut out felt eye and nostril pieces and glue to the puppet's face.
  • Step 3
    Draw and color scales, the dragon's underbelly and the inside of the mouth with Crayola Fabric Markers. Next, add details to the felt fins, eyes and nostrils.
  • Step 4
    With glue, apply the Creativity Street Jumbo Wiggle Eyes on top of the felt eye pieces. To finish the puppet, paint highlights with Sargent Art Acrylic Glitter Glaze on desired areas. Let glitter glaze dry thoroughly.
