Last year our boys decided that they wanted to be a marionette and a Christmas stocking. It is our tradition to allow them to choose whet they want to be and we will try to make it.

Marionette Costume:

Find appropriate clothes to wear and lock stocking.

Find a sturdy hat to wear that can be used to support the controls above their head.

Use a wire hanger and poke it through the hat so that is it about 6-8 inches above the hat.

We used flexible cork strips to be light but you can use small sticks for the control arms.

Tie a string from each stick to the wrists and ankles.

Paint face as needed.
