Paper bag owl puppet


Bring some autumn color to your refrigerator with this paper bag owl. Using a classic brown bag and a few supplies from the craft store, you'll have a hoot!


  • brown paper bags
  • googly eyes (can substitute buttons)
  • orange pipe cleaners (the thicker, the better)
  • construction paper (black and yellow)
  • brown felt
  • autumn leaves


  1. Making the face: The bottom of the paper bag, folded flat, will serve as your puppet's face. Cut out a black construction paper triangle whose base is as wide as the paper bag and glue it upside-down to the bottom of the bag. Cut a smaller yellow triangle for the beak and attach it. Glue on the buttons or googly eyes.
  2. Glue the leaves you collected for puppet's "wings."
  3. Cut an oval of brown felt and glue on the bag for a furry tummy.
  4. Twine three orange pipe cleaners together to form each foot, then staple to the top the bag.
