No Sew Sock Puppets: simple homemade Christmas hand puppets in under 10 minutes!
One morning last week, I got it in my head that I wanted to make a set of no sew sock puppets for the hooligans. I thought a set of Christmas hand puppets would be fun to play with in these days leading up to the holidays.
I raided my older son’s sock drawer for a couple of un-matched socks, and then quickly scoured the craft-cupboards to see what I could come up with.
I wanted these sock puppets to be quick and easy to make. I didn’t want to mess around with a needle and thread, so I simply plugged in my glue gun, and in minutes I’d made these adorable Snowman and Reindeer sock puppets! Here’s how I did it:

- googly eyes
- wooden bead
No sew snowman sock puppet:
To make my snowman sock puppet, I used a sock with a grey toe because I liked the way that grey area kind of looked like little hat.
I simply glued on my button eyes and mouth pieces, and added a piece of kitchen sponge that I’d cut to look like a carrot.
A few buttons down the front of the sock, and voila! You’ve just made a snowman sock puppet in about 2 minutes.
No sew reindeer sock puppet:
To make my reindeer puppet, I went with an all white sock. I glued on a couple of goggly eyes, a pom pom nose, and for the mouth, I used a wooden barrel bead.
I then twisted a couple of brown pipe-cleaners around my finger, to create the spiral “antlers”. I poked each one through the sock a teeny bit, and then bent the end of the pipe-cleaner that was inside the sock, so that it wouldn’t poke anyone’s hand. Then I put a shot of glue on the outside of the sock, and pressed the pipe cleaner into it.
And there you have it! Two adorable, no-sew Christmas sock puppets in a matter of minutes!
Let the fun begin!
