If you’ve seen all the cute finger puppet designs around, but just don’t fancy sewing, or maybe don’t feel confident with a needle and thread then this super easy alternative is for you. We made our own no sew monster finger puppets using Bostik glue dots, and each one took only a few minutes to make.

How to make the no sew monster finger puppets

First, we added glue dots all around the edges of the finger puppet shape, on our coloured felt.

Make sure to leave enough space for your or your child’s finger to fit inside. The glue dots stick very firmly, so as long as you add enough to give a good cover along the edges, this will stick firmly without the need for sewing. You could also use Bostik fabric glue, which works really well too. We are a bit addicted to our glue dots these days and tend to reach for them with nearly every project!

Once your edges are sealed up – making sure to leave the bottom unglued to fit the finger in – then you’re ready to decorate.

Arrange your eyes and monster features on the front of edge puppet and stick them down, again using the glue dots.

We had fun making lots of different styles of monsters
