Cut several pieces of yarn or fabric and glue then at the top of the head of your puppet.

Step 7: The Cloak

For my cloak, I cut off part of an old pant leg and glued one side of one end to the top of the head. Then, I glued the other side of the same end to the bottom of the head. (If it's easier for you, you can put a dab of glue between where your thumb will be and the bottom of the head).

Step 8: Ta-Da!
