Design Ideas for Puppets
Cardboard Puppet Costumes
Note: These are good puppets to make with even very small children. They can draw the original shape, and after an adult has cut out the two sides and put them together, they can do low relief on them with papier mache, or just paint them. The shape can be made less boxy by making the connecting strips wider or narrower.
Note: This is a good puppet for young children to make.
Note: This needs several layers of very light cloth, preferably cheesecloth.
Note: Shimmy Dancer takes about six yards of cloth for costume and hair. The hoops are in seams in the cloth.
Note: Hattifatner takes about six yards of cloth.
