How to Make the Halloween Clothespin Puppets
What you need:
- our printable puppet template
- printer and paper
- coloring supplies for the black and white version
Step by Step Tutorial
Print out the Halloween puppets template. We recommend you use heavier print paper or cardstock to make them more durable, especially if you are printing the black and white version for kids to color in.
For the black and white version, we recommend you color the characters first. It’s easier to color them before they are cut out.
Cut out the characters by cutting along the character outlines.
You also need to cut along the mouth line (marked on the puppets).
Apply glue on the clothespin. If you are working with wooden clothespins, a regular glue stick glue is enough to do the job.
Stick the puppet parts on the clothespin.
Your printable Halloween clothespin puppets are ready for play.
