Assembly is easy-peasy. If you're not into sewing, all you need is glue. Or use glue and embroidery floss and a needle. Either works just fine. A note on glue: I discovered the hard way that fabric glue doesn't work well on felt. Best pick, Elmer's All Purpose or Ailene's Tacky/Craft glue.

You can download the PDF Sketches of HGN Puppets, if you'd like. So you have a shopping list, I bought felt (1 9x12" sheet of each) in the colors: black, white (2 sheets), brown, tan, beige, gold/dark yellow, red, pale pink, kelly green, dark green, lighter green, teal, light blue, pale purple, dark purple, medium/rustic brown. Plus I had gray wool thread on hand for the hair.

Now for the fun part, I'll "talk" you through each puppet and share any tips or special features.

Globster Halloween finger puppet!

Globster

I embroidered the eyes and mouth and blanket-stitched around the sides. The body could have been light blue or gray.

Wood Imp Finger Puppet craft, so cute for Halloween.

Wood Imp

I'll admit, this one's a fave. The body is tan with a beige nose, black hair, red cap, and brown skirt snipped partway up. I embroidered the mouth and did french knots for eyes.

Don't know how to do a french knot? Well, check out this YouTube how-to!

A Werewolf finger puppet diy craft, just waiting for Halloween fun.

Werewolf

Do they come any cuter? Embroidered eyes, and embroidered over the teeth (I was afraid they'd fall off). To make the fur, I cut a small rectangle of black felt, then cut it into a zillion little matchstick-sized pieces, then glued them on at one end.

Cute Mummy finger puppet craft for Halloween

Mummy

After gluing on cheeks and making french knot eyes, I used on long strip of white and trimmed it as I arranged it in overlapping layers.

A Halloween zombie finger puppet. DIY craft for preschool!

Zombie

This girl turned out adorable. French knot eyes, embroidered fangs, and frayed hair made by separating strands of wool thread.

Witch finger puppet craft perfect for Halloween, and goes with the book Halloween Good Night by Grabill/Okstad.

Witch

Eyes and hair like above, but I added warts. Because Witch. My broom end is two layers, the bottom beige, the top light brown with slits cut like the Imp's skirt.

A Goblin finger puppet, perfect for Halloween!

Goblin

French knot eyes, embroidered fangs (three this time), tiny tuft of yarn-hair, and lots of love made this guy one of the cutest of the bunch!

Ghost finger puppet for Halloween crafting fun!

Ghost

The only tricky part of this ghost was knowing how far to stitch along the edge. I went a little too far - child fingers fit better than adult.

Vampire finger puppet made of felt in this diy Halloween craft with free pattern!

Vampire

No tricks here, just treats. Sweet pink-cheesed smile with a bite, French knot eyes, blanket stitched all along the sides.

Boggart boogie man monster finger puppet in the diy Halloween craft tutorial!

Boggart

Boo! I think the best parts of this crazy guy are his single tuft of hair and crazy, mis-matched eyes!
