Tusky the Elephant Sock Puppet

Kids will love playing the part of the swaggering elephant.

What You Need:

Create this fun elephant for your child's next party.
  • Gray socks
  • Scissors
  • Batting
  • Pipe cleaner
  • White felt
  • Sewing machine
  • Black thread
  • Buttons


1. Cut floppy ears and a trunk from a gray sock. Sew the trunk together, stuff it with batting, and insert a pipe cleaner.

2. Sew the trunk to the toe of the matching sock and curve it upward. Make the tusks from white felt and batting.

3. Attach the tusks, ears, and button eyes. Of course, no elephant is complete without wrinkles. Use black thread to stitch horizontal lines on the trunk, scrunching the fabric as you stitch for a realistic effect. Add a few lines on the tip of the trunk for nostrils.
