No Sew Felt Owl Finger Puppets

Wowee where do I begin? These adorable Owl Finger Puppets have gone down a storm in my owl mad household.

For one, they’re NO-SEW, which makes them incredibly easy to make and can be put together within minutes – perfect for people like me who are less inclined to sew.

They have  entertained my kids for HOURS.

Inspiring some incredible made-up stories, with my preschooler happily chatting to and making up voices for her finger puppets.

She has adapted nursery rhymes to include her little “owly Owls” and sung the revised versions to her baby brother. THIS, I can tell you, made me all mushy inside!

Before I go into full gush mode, I had no idea that my kids would love these owl finger puppets as much as they do.

And the more they play, the more potential I see.

For example, they could become fun gifts for kids alongside a relatable picture book. They may also help a reluctant child engage with a book on a different level or simply encourage some good Ol’ fashioned imaginative play.

Sound good? Here’s what you need…

Using the hot glue gun (US Link / UK Link), glue along the dotted line of owl 1, leaving a finger gap.

Add the felt wings, eyes, beak and buttons.

We included the buttons to add an alternative texture and pattern. You could swap the buttons for patterned paper or fabric.

The best thing about hot glue, is that dries really quickly and is very strong! So within no time my little lady was able to start playing with her owl finger puppets.

If you don’t have a hot glue gun (US Link / UK Link) to hand, you could try this craft with another strong adhesive or adapt it into an sewing project for kids by using a simple running stitch.

  1. These owl finger puppets are adorable, and so easy to make! I can already think of a variety of picture books that the kids could act out with them. They would also make a fun gift!

  2. I do sew, but it is nice to see options where I wouldn’t have to as an alternate option. I bet my daughters would love these puppets.

  3. These owl finger puppets are amazing! Thanks for sharing Helen. My two-year-old daughter LOVES owls and she is just starting to grasp the concept of a puppet show – so this is the perfect combination! I can’t wait to make a few of these and watch her creativity shine. And I love that they are no-sew!!!
