Step 4

Glue the 2 body sections together by placing glue on the ice cream stick and applying glue on the edges of the felt body. Gently place the two sections together. Remember to leave the bottom area open as this is where your finger will be inserted. For an easier idea how to do this, refer to the Father Christmas felt finger puppet.
