Alright. You're ready to make your own Daniel Tiger costume. Here is what you'll need:
- a red hooded sweater
- an orange hat / balaclava
- orange pants
- brown & orange felt
- hot-glue gun
STEP ONE: MAKING THE EARS
Draw the shape of your desired Daniel Tiger ears on the cardboard. Cut them out. Use them as a guide while tracing a slightly larger shaped ear on the orange felt. Cut out the orange felt. Use the hot glue to cover the cardboard ears in orange felt. Using the brown felt you can cut little stripes to glue to the ears.
PRO TIP: Bend the ears at the bottom so you have a base where you can glue them to the hat/balaclava. Now that you have the ears done, glue them to the hat/balaclava. Add a few stripes to the top and sides of the hat.
STEP TWO: MAKING THE TAIL
Fold and glue your orange felt over several times until it is the desired thickness for your tail. Cut around the bottom to round-out the tail. Use your brown felt to cut little stripes, and hot-glue them to the tail. You can glue the tail to the sweater or use a safety pin.
STEP THREE: MAKING THE PANTS
Cut a few stripes out of the brown felt and glue them to the pants. If you want to re-use the pants, you could also use double-sided tape though it doesn't stick as well.
STEP FOUR: ACCESSORIZE
Grab some red shoes and a watch, and your little Daniel Tiger is now ready to go trick-or-treating (and will stay warm) this Halloween for under $25!
