Moving Marionette Clowns

Clown around with these great marionette clowns! Simple to make and a lot of fun!

Craft Project Directions:
To make the control rod that will move your marionette around- take two craft sticks or dowels and place one on top of the other to form a cross and tape in place. 

Measure out lengths of string or ribbon that will allow the your clown to be a nice distance away from the sticks. 

Tie one end of the string to an end of the figure and the other end to the control rod. Repeat on the other side. 

Cut out a marionette figure using the template provided- attach the arms and legs to the body with brass fasteners so they will move. 

Next decorate your clown with markers, crayons, fabric scraps, yarn, etc. and let it dry.

Enjoy Crafting!
