I love projects that look complicated but are actually easy to make, like this adorable, goofy bird marionette. The body and head are simple styrofoam balls that are decorated with feathers and a piece cut from a feather boa. The neck and legs are pieces of clothesline and the feet are made from beads and craft foam. I suggest using the directions provided to create your own marionette and then experiment with your own unique creations.
