Puppet Theatre for under $5

This is my weekend project - a puppet theatre which I created for for under $5!

I found this at the Reuse Centre for $3
I am not sure if it was actually a puppet theatre once upon a time - or a dart board frame. 

I think it's a puppet theatre - 'cause that's where my mind went.

See $3 - yippy!

It needed curtains, so I got a pillow case from the dollar store.

I made 2 curtain panels out of one pillow case.

I didn't want to sew so I hemmed it with Fabric Glue!

Worked great nice and neat!

To hang the curtains I used picture wire and an eye hook.

Inside view.

Front view.

I made a sign on my cricut machine.

I also added some tickets.

So what do you think? I am more than certain the tots will love it!
Next month we are focusing on Music and Drama - this should come in handy!


  1. This is fabulous. You did such a great job. I'll definitely be pinning! I just got a cricut machine for Christmas and I've wanted one for forever, but now that I have one.. I have no idea where to start. Do you have any advice, tips, tricks, or suggestions?

  2. When I got my cricut I let the designs inspire me. As I went through the available images I knew what I wanted to do. I started with a bulletin board - then I made cut outs for the kids to paste and colour - then this project. It depends on what your needs are as well. I am sure once you get going your imagination will take off! Email me some images of what you make so we can share it here! have fun!
