Easiest {And Cheapest} Puppet Ever

I am soooo excited about this week's Monday Made It! 
I have recently become aware of the wonderfulness that is Kohl's. How did I go so long without knowing?! It was always one of those places that I never thought of going, but now I might have an obsession. Especially with their Kohl's Cares books and matching character! Who can go wrong with a $5 book and a $5 stuffed animal?!

Ohmygoodness. Precious.
Here is what he started like. 10 minutes and a few hot glue burns later, and he is an adorable puppet!

Cut a small slit somewhere on the back.

Pull out a little of the stuffing.

 Now, originally, I had planned to glue a glove or a mitten inside.'s July. And 100 degrees outside. So there were no mittens or gloves to be found that weren't giant man work gloves.
So instead...socks! 
So easy! Just slip the sock on your hand and arrange it inside the stuffed animal. Pull your hand out and add a little hot glue. Ta da!! Could not be any easier!

Now, I had a few issues taking a picture of the puppet actually on my hand. I decided to leave out those pictures, since most of them included part of the puppet and a whole bunch of wall. But you get the idea!

Head over and link up with what you have made!
