Few hours with scissors and glue and we can have little Shakespeare’s on our hands!

You can make many things like:

  • Prince Charming
  • The Evil Queen
  • Horse
  • Ogre
  • Elves
  • Dwarfs
  • Monsters
  • Fairy

We previously have made animal puppets with paper bags and a paper bag pumpkin for Halloween trick or treat!

Write a play or story, then create all the characters you will need out of paper bags.

Before we get crafting, create a blueprint for the puppet you wish to make.

For our example, we have decided to make a princess to act out a fairy tale story with Prince Charming. I have also made popsicle stick puppets featuring a Princess and a Frog if you have little girls who want to tell a story with their crafts!

How To Make Paper Bag Puppets – Princess Craft

Our story has a beautiful princess as a main character. Here’s how you can make her:

Craft Supplies:

  • Brown Paper Lunch Bags
  • String (if character needs hair)
  • Googly Eyes

Step #1:

In the fold of the bag crate your puppets mouth. You can do this by coloring the inside red, or maybe add some lips with construction paper.

Step #2:

On the top glue on some string as hair and any hat they may be wearing. For ours we have added hair and a gold crown.

Step #3:

Decorate your face as desired. use goggly eyes to give your puppet some more character.

Also, add arms to the sides if your character has arms.

Step #4:

Color and decorate the body with markers. For ours we have created a dress.
