Craft Thursday with Lisa Lopez: Baby Sock Finger Puppets

As we all have discovered, one sock always turns up missing. Especially baby socks! These cute little onesies can turn into adorable little friends with some imagination and a few supplies.

Here are a few friends that I have made so you can get an idea.

Here are the items that you will need:

  • baby socks
  • glue
  • lentils
  • various colors of felt
  • wiggly eyes
  • rubber bands
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • colored pom poms

items that you need

For the elephant:
Step 1. Gather your items, ie eyes, ears, trunk, mouth, sock

step 1.

Step 2. Scoop some lentils into the sock. Not too much, just about 3 or 4 teaspoons.

step 2.

Step 3. Take a rubber band and put it around the sock under the lentils to create the head. This will also keep your lentils from falling out.

Step 4. Glue ears, eyes, trunk and mouth and tie a ribbon around the neck to hide the rubber band.

step 4.

And that is the elephant.
