JOSEPH: Spoon Doll Puppet

 

Make a JOSEPH PUPPET from a plastic spoon!

Joseph’s robe is glued on to the spoon. Note the vertical pleat down the centre! This gives the robe a smart, tailored look and is so easy to do!

TO MAKE THE SPOON PUPPET:

  1. Paint the head of the spoon in a skin colour.
  2. Print out the robe, colour and cut out.
  3.  Crease the front, lengthwise, to form a pleat. This adds some texture and dimension to the garment.
  4. Glue the robe to the head of the figure slightly above the chin level.
  5. Add facial features.

TO MAKE THE HEAD-PIECE:

Cut out fabric 2″ (5cm) x 8″ (20cm). Fold in half lengthwise. The folded part should face the front and the raw edge should face the back. Glue the head-piece to the crown of the head as shown in the photo. Tie a pipe cleaner around the head.
