Deer Hand Puppet ~ 1 of 6 photos

Deer puppet made from recycled common household materials, and Makedo connectors.


Makedo had asked if I would love to create with their product, and I gladly said yes! I have no financial gains from promoting company or products. My inner child has been having a lot of fun with this construction "toy."


Materials used-- Recycled:


- 1 64 oz orange juice carton

- 2 aqua color drink straws

- 3 empty paper towel rolls

(one was cut in half for the neck, the 2 other rolls were cut in half for the legs)

- 1 wooden popsicle stick to stabilize the head better


Other Materials and Tools used:


- Fiskars micro tip scissors (for the tail details)

- regular sturdy scissors for the box cutting

- craft knife for the slits the ears fit into

- clear packing tape for added stability to some joints and cuts

- staple and staplers to connect the legs to the body

- Makedo clips, hinge and connectors (the teal blue and black thingys)
