Making Wacky Finger Puppets




About: I've been doing ceramics for over 20 years. First making things for myself and since then an ETSY shop to share all the items I make. Usually whimsical items and functional items for daily enjoyment.

Making one finger puppet might take as little as 1/2 hour.  Once you get the hang of it, then embellish and create more for each finger/toe.
