Tips for Making Halloween Paper Bag Puppets
When making this craft, there are a few tips you will want to know:
- You will need several different colored pieces of construction paper or card stock: green, yellow, black, orange, purple, pink.

HOW TO MAKE This Paper Bag Frankenstein Puppet
To begin with this cute Frankenstein puppet, download and print the template onto card stock.
Then, use the pieces as a stencil to draw the pieces on the right colored construction paper. Or, have kids just color their own pieces.
Next glue a large strip of orange paper onto the sack of the bag.
Then, add your lighter orange strips to it. Place a black strip at the bottom.
Next, layer your Frankenstein with a purple jacket and a green bow.
Glue Frankenstein’s ears, hair, and bone spurs to his head.
Finally, add his eyes, nose, mouth, and cheeks. Then, glue his head onto the paper bag.
