Craft Inspiration: Celebrity Felt Finger Puppets

Are these the cutest finger puppets you’ve ever seen or what? We written before about how popular felt art is right now, and this is another felt artist who is obviously a master at what she does.

Melanie Howard makes these felt finger puppets to look like celebrities and sells them in her Etsy store. In her profile she writes, “I have really yet to explore everything that flashes in my head. Pop culture, in general, can feel like a puppet show. If only I could keep up with the material!

I always notice when artists go the extra mile to create something special. It is one of the things that separates a good artist from a great artist. She could have simply taken random photographs of her puppets, but instead, she took the time to make a special backdrop for each photo. You can learn more about Melanie and see her entire collection of puppets (there are tons of them!) in her Etsy Store. The Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber puppets are definitely my favorites. These start at about $10 each. I want all of them!
