Free Zombie Finger Puppets

Free Zombie Finger Puppets - free printable or Silhouette sketch and cut files

To be honest, zombies aren’t really my thing. I do, however, live with a zombie enthusiast who will talk my face off about all things zombie. I know about different characters on The Walking Dead though I’ve not seen but a handful of episodes. I know a little bit about the artist of the graphic series by the same name. I even know all about how the world is gonna go haywire when the zombie apocalypse occurs.

To be even more honest, I just don’t know how serious he takes this whole “zombie apocalypse” thing. He talks about it to where all of my family is absolutely positive that he means what he says and he’s ready for the earth to be taken by “walkers”. I guess the bug out bag with a machete in it doesn’t really help his credibility much where that is concerned.

But thanks to his fanaticism I have these amazing hand-drawn zombie finger puppets to share with you. With two little finger holes in them, they’re even “walkers”! We’ve got the zombie guy with hip hair, the well dressed zombie lady, and, of course, the hillbilly zombie destined to forever walk the earth with a scruffy beard and a pair of overalls.

We’ve got two different ways you can knock these bad boys out…

First you can download the free printable above and print out on your choice of colored card-stock. Green, dead flesh colored would probably work best. Run through a xerox machine, your home printer or send off to a copy shop. Click the pattern above to download the high resolution PDF file.

The next option is to use a Silhouette cutter. You’ll need sketch pens or a pen holder for your machine, plus the regular cutting blade. You’ll also need this free Silhouette zombie finger pattern file where I’ve done all of the hard work for you (seriously about an hour and a half apiece but watching them sketch out was so worth it!) The sketched zombies are each one group and their outlines/circles for finger holes are a different set of groups.

The way I worked it was I selected the cut lines (in blue) and hit “Edit –> CUT” to remove them. I then ran the Silhouette with a black sketch pen on green card-stock. I unloaded the mat and helped it to keep from going all crazy and wonky and reloaded it as closely as I could to the first go. Then hit “Edit –>PASTE” to bring the cut lines back and then selected the zombies (red lines) hitting “Edit –> CUT” to isolate just the cut outs and ran the machine with the blade. And if that makes no sense, I’m sure you’ll get it all worked out! But just know that I made the cut lines around each zombie pretty generous to help things out in case the stars and your cutting mat don’t perfectly align.

Have fun with your walking free zombie finger puppets!

    What is there not to love about brain eating zombies? I personally have been a zombie fan for years. I got a zombie garden gnome as a birthday present a few years back. Anyway, enough about me. The finger puppets are awesome-sauce!

      Why thank you, Brianna! I’m thinking that a zombie gnome would be insanely neat!

    Allison, while all your crafts are so cool, this one really hit home. I shared it on Facebook with my daughter, with instructions to read the story that goes along with it about living with a zombie enthusiast. Hmm… come to think of it, maybe I should have shared this on my son-in-law’s timeline!

      I’m so glad that the puppets spoke to you! Living with a zombie enthusiast is DEFINITELY something you have to get used to :)

    Allison, I used your Zombie Finger Puppet printout to make a card for fellow “Walking Dead” enthusiast. She loved it. Thank you for sharing.[email protected]/15671413982/in/photostream/
