Snowman Puppet Part 14
The snowman's hands, arms, and fingers are made from bamboo. Bamboo is perfect for a snowman puppet because it's strong, hollow, and has a natural stick look.
Cut the arms to the appropriate length. Thread string through each end so that a couple of inches hang out of either end. Use hot glue to glue the string in place.
Cut the fingers and glue strings inside, make sure a couple inches of string hang out so you can attach the fingers to the arm.
Glue foam and felt around the palm and elbow. Use scissors to poke a hole in the puppet's shoulders. Thread the excess string through the hole and use hot glue to attach the arms inside the body.
