How To Make Halloween Dracula Puppet Craft
Time needed: 20 minutes
- Trace and cut the template
Trace and cut out the template patterns on your choice of construction papers for your Dracula paper bag craft.
We chose to use purple craft paper for the head and arms; black for the hair, shoes, and clothes; white for the shirt and fangs; red for the cape and bow tie; and pink for the blush.
- Make the hair of the Dracula
Paste the hair cutout on Dracula’s face.
- Draw the eyes and paste them
Use a black sharpie to draw the eyes on the eye base cutouts and glue them on the vampire’s face. Next, paste the blush cutouts below the eyes on both cheeks of the Dracula.
- Complete the face
Draw the nose and mouth using a black thin tip pen on the Dracula puppet. To complete Dracula’s face, paste the fang cutouts along the bottom side of Dracula’s mouth.
- Make Dracula’s body with a paper bag
To make the body of the Dracula, cut a rectangular piece of black craft paper big enough to cover one side of the paper bag. Paste the shirt cutout of the vampire along the top-middle part of the body base cutout.
- Glue the head on the paper bag
Flatten the bottom side of the paper bag and paste Dracula’s head on the flattened side.
- Paste the body on the paper bag.
Glue the body pattern on the paper bag, below the vampire’s head.
- Glue Dracula’s shoes
Next, paste the shoe cutouts at the bottom side (open side of the bag) of the vampire puppet.
- Fix the bow tie of the Dracula.
Paste the bow-tie cutout in the center of the white shirt.
- Paste the arms of the Dracula puppet and attach the cape.
Glue the arm cutouts on both sides of the paper bag Dracula puppet. Lastly, to complete your Vampire craft, paste the cape cutout on the backside of the puppet. Trace the cape using a black sharpie to add definition to the cape.
