I made some simple Star Wars finger puppets from craft felt (one of the best crafty bargains around at about a quarter a sheet!).

You can make finger puppets in any shape or theme you want to. You can construct them from simple shapes, you can add googly eyes (or not), or button eyes. You can basically embellish them any way you want to. Great summer craft for kids!

Tips: If you have specific characters in mind (like these Star Wars guys), I recommend doing a quick sketch in your sketchbook so you know what pieces to cut out. I glued additional pieces to the backs of the heads to reinforce the puppets, since regular craft felt is not very stiff.

These are insanely cute. I'd love to see more characters from other things. The style you made them in is awesome.

Thanks! The style was inspired by this brooch.
