This DIY Felt Chicken mask is easy to make, super cute, cheap and you need basically no talent or particular skills to make it. – what are you waiting for?
On my little chicken, I paired this felt mask with some denim overalls, a red neckerchief and yellow thongs (that’s filp-flops to some of you.) Enjoy, and if you do make this tutorial please share the finished product so I can have a squiz. Happy Halloween!!
In my previous life as a drama teacher (I know, who knew!) when choosing costumes for performances I always went with simple, comfortable, basic clothes (blacks or denim) and fancy accessories. I think they look heaps cuter then giant puffy costumes. They also don’t inhibit play and usually make the distance when it comes to the common strain of outfit leprosy most toddlers have.
You will need:
Felt (the thicker the better.)
1) Draw your shapes with a Sharpie on the back of your felt. If you aren’t confident drawer, practice on paper then cut it out and trace it.
2) Cut out your pieces of felt.
3) Sew the two triangles together along the two straight edges, with the bigger one on the top.
4) Place them on top of the mask then sew them on with big, neat big stitches.
5) Sew on the wobbly bit on top.
6) Cut the eye holes.
7) Attach some elastic or two ribbons with a quick stitch and you’re done.
*Just FYI, this is not a long lasting mask, if you want something that will last forever then search Pinterest for some awesome tutorials by people who can actually sew
