Step 4

Apply construction glue on the edges of one body piece using the ice cream stick. Gently place the second red felt body piece on top of the first body piece. Do not press hard or the body section of the finger puppet will not glue properly. Make sure the bottom is not glued as this is where your finger will be inserted once your Father Christmas finger puppet is complete.
