Homemade Puppet Theater

A few years ago I saw the most adorable puppet theater in a magazine (I think it was One Step) but the cheap-scape that I am refused to pay that. Also, my boys are not big puppet kids, BUT they love to play snowcone stand. ??? Yah, I don't know where that comes from ???

I wanted to show you what we now own... thanks to my WONDERFUL mother. Affectionately known in our house as "Bumpa".

It is made from: felt, an expanding curtain rod, 2 dowel rods, string, and plastic hoops. 
I did smudge out their names, but both my boys have their names on it too.

The top piece ("removable sign") in yellow is Velcro-ed and can be changed for "snow cone", "food", or "puppets".

The 2 curtains are attached with tiny plastic hoops that are strung on a string to slide them open and closed. You can see it a little better in the top photo.
The two dowel rods are used for support. One of ours is missing at the moment. I'm pretty sure it got removed to be used as a sword, but no one will fess up. :)

I hope this gives you some inspiration to get crafting.
