ST. DAMIEN: finger puppet from a glove

Make a finger puppet of St. Damien from a beige glove! The only sewing required is to gather the neckline. That’s it! Children will love learning a new craft—how to make a felt hat. It is super simple to make and lots of fun.

TO MAKE HIS SIGNATURE EYEGLASSES:

Cut a piece of craft wire about 4″(10cm) and leave an end of approx. 2″(5cm). Wind the wire two times around a pencil to form the lenses. Bend the ends to the side of the head and glue down.

TO MAKE HIS CAPE:

Cut out a circle approx. 3″(7.5cm) and cut out a small hole in the centre—just enough to fit around the puppet’s neck. Cut  down the centre so that the cape can be placed on the figure as shown in the photo.

NOTE: As you can see in Father Damien’s case you do not need to make arms!
