My husband Carl has loved Muppets since he was a small child and I always wanted to make him one so this week when I needed something fun to keep me busy this is what I did for him. It took me two days and was the funnest thing I have made in some time! I tried to show the steps in making “him” to help anyone that may want to make a Muppet. If you have any questions feel free to ask I love to help :)
I made temporary paper eyes and brows and stuck them on with foam risers to see if I liked the face before making it and attaching I strongly recommend this if you try to make one. The eyes were the worst part to make :(
Hope you like mini Carl the real Carl was speechless :)
