Easy Monster Sock Puppet Tutorial

Print Friendly

With the cold winter months ahead, I decided I better come up with a few things to entertain the kiddo indoors.  I found an easy tutorial from One of a Kind Gift Ideas for a darling monster sock puppet and went to work!

Fuzzy Sock(s)
hot glue and glue gun
pom poms

*You’ll want to find a fuzzy sock that is long enough to cover a lot of your arm!*
Step 1: Cut out a cardboard oval.  Mine was about 4 inches long.
Step 2: Trace your cardboard oval twice onto your piece of felt.  Hot glue a piece of felt to each side of the cardboard.
Step 3: Cut the toe off the end of your sock, slide your arm through and adjust the cardboard to work as a mouth (fold in half).

Step 4: Roll the ends of the sock under and hot glue them to the felt covered cardboard to create the mouth.

Step 5: Decorate!  I used pom poms for the eyes, felt for the razor back and hot glued on random pom poms all over the body.  Just be creative!

    Thank you SO much for sharing this super-adorable idea! My three year-old is so excited to give gifts to her friends for Christmas and I’ve been searching for fun, inexpensive gift ideas that her and I can make together. I am fairly (EXTREMELY!) craft-challenged, so this sock monster is PERFECT! Thank you!
