Stuffed animal + paint stir sticks = DIY marionette puppet!

DIY marionette (photo used with permission)

How's this for clever? Justin shared this photo (with permission) of his friend's transformation of a regular stuffed animal into a marionette with the addition of two items:

  • Paint stir sticks (glued together)
  • Yarn

What can I add beyond the FOREHEAD SMACK OF BRILLIANCE? *bows down to Justin's friend*

Actually, I can add something. A smart hack for detangling marionette strings.
