How to Make a String Puppet

2019_05_09_string_puppet_teddy_bear

Okay, yeah, I have issues with laughing too much. I analogize in advance for that. But, I left it in the video for memories sake. My grandchildren can watch grandma laugh. So, anyway, a nice lady from Canada sent me this bear and asked if I would make a video demonstrating how to make a string puppet. So, here it is! I had fun making it!

Recycle Your Old Greeting Cards

2017_12_02_bird_ornaments_2

I needed some “safe” ornaments for my tree this year. (I have two pet ferrets and three cats.) So, I gathered up some old greeting cards, mail envelopes, and wrapping paper scraps. I also used toilet paper tube rolls for this project to add strength. I was very happy with the results. My goal was to make them as simply as possible. I just don’t have all of the time in the world and wanted something cute that the animals wouldn’t eat or break. The two minute video tutorial can be found here. Thanks for visiting and have a great holiday season!
