If you have a little girl in your life you know Disney Princesses! We’re knee deep in Princess, we eat sleep and breathe it actually. When my daughter recently took an interest in puppet play I decided to get out the felt and glue gun and create some fun Disney Princess Puppets for her, now her imagination can run wild to a kingdom far far away.
These Disney Princess Puppets are super easy to make, its a NO SEW project, so if you’re armed with a glue gun, and scissors you’re on your way to some very cute puppet friends!
Of course I had to throw in a Prince! How is a felt princess to get married without a knight in shining armor?!
Supplies for the Disney Princess Puppets:
- Felt- 1 sheet of each- light pink or peach, hot pink, yellow, green, white, black, purple, blue, light blue, red, brown, light brown. Some of the sheets I used were glittery. I actually prefer those over the plain because it was stiff.
- Hot glue gun and sticks
- Fabric scissors
- Paper/Printer (for the pattern)
- 7 child size socks (cheap tube socks with no heal work perfect)
How to Make the No-Sew Disney Princess Puppets
- Print pattern pieces from the downloads below. There are 4 sheets in total. Cut the pattern pieces on the outside of the black lines.
- Using a chalk pencil (a pen works too) trace the pieces onto the appropriate sheet of felt. Cut out pieces. Laying them into piles for each puppet as you go.
- Layer the puppets referring to the photos, Hot glue pieces in place. Be sure to not make the bead of glue too heavy. Each puppet starts with the back of the hair, then head (except for Snow White and Cinderella they are dress then head), dress, arms, and accessories. At this point the Princesses will be quite floppy, but don’t worry the sock will support them!
- Use a Sharpie pen (which are super cheap at Costco) to draw on the faces.
- Hot glue the tube sock directly to the back of the felt. Don’t apply glue beyond the bum of the princess. You want the bottom of the dress to be able to lift off the sock.
Aren’t’ these little puppets sweet! So easy anyone can make them!
Now you’ve got some puppet making to do!

Oh THANK YOU!!! I, too, am knee deep with Princess stuff—yees! And there’s only one little Princess living here! she will love this!
I’m so glad Laura, they’re really easy to make! Have fun, I hope your little one does too!
YAY! My daughter is obsessed with puppets right now! I made her a doorway theatre and a set of Doc McStuffins puppets for Christmas! I was just browsing Pinterest for some new ideas for Princess puppets when this showed up in my INBOX! Weird, but awesome! AND I can finally put to use the huge pile of hubby’s toe-hole sock collection! I have a draft puppet post in the wings of my blog so when I get these done I will link it back to you! Thank you, thank you, thank you! 🙂

Dani @ lifeovereasy says
These are adorable! I love how you just stuck them to socks – very clever! Your daughter looks so much like you 🙂
Soooooooo CUTE Virginia!!!!! I want some too!
I’m sure your littles would love them Christine!
Thanks, for the patterns. My two friends and I made them last night for our kids and they were very fun to make. We even used your patterns to make an Elsa and Anna puppet as well. Have you thought of making the villains. Would love patterns to make the evil queen and Ursula.
Thanks Michelle for coming back to drop a line! I’m so happy you were able to use the patterns! I’ll have to put my thinking cap on for some evil ones, I’ll let you know if I do! Stay tuned I have another fun girls project coming up! Thanks again- V
I’m making these right now! Thanks so much for sharing. I was thinking Elsa and Anna would be great (Rapunzel too) but I LOVE the villain idea! Ursula! Maleficent! That would be so fun!
Maggie Zammit says
Thank you very much for sharing. These are great for my grand daughter.
these are the coolest! Do you have any patterns yet for Rapunzel, and Anna and Elsa? (I’m sure I can improvise after I do these, but I’m just curious.
I haven’t recreated but I definitely think the Frozen characters need to make an appearance!
These puppets are great! Is there a chance you could create a design for Rapunzel and Jasmine? I think I could probably create my own from the patterns, but yours are so creative and easy to make!
Great idea Julie, I’ll have to work on those!
thank you soooo much have 3 princess granddaughters that will love these : )
Where can I get the tube socks? I’ve looked everywhere.
I got mine at the dollar store. Look for the absolute cheapest white socks you can find. Check a second hand shop also
Thank you sooo much for the free pattern! I just made these as a Christmas present for my girls. I was also able to figure out how to do Ariel as a human, Rapunzel, Elsa and Anna. Again, thank you for sharing your talent- what a gift you have!!
That is so wonderful! I’ve been meaning to go back and create a few more characters, maybe in the new year! I hope the little ones love them
Amanda will you share how you did Rapunzel, Elsa and Anna? I am also making for a Christmas present. They turned out so cute!!!
Alexz Ross says
So cute 🙂 I am pretty sure that my grand daughters will love these 🙂
They are so easy to make, you’ll love them too!
Socks are not at a premium around here, but my grand nieces will love making these and we can glue them to paint sticks. Next making a cardboard stage that looks like a palace.
That is a great idea Tori! Thanks for coming by
