DIY Halloween Costume: Pig Ears, Nose, and Tail

For our three little pigs costume, we made pig ears, noses, and tails that are no-sew and take only a few minutes to make. Here’s how to do it…

First up the tail:

Supplies: Pink elastic, pink felt, pink pipe cleaner, fabri-tac or hot glue, scissors

Step 1: Cut a piece of felt a bit longer than the pipe cleaner and that’s wide enough that it can fold over it.

Step 2: Place the pipe cleaner inside, wrap and glue the felt around it.


Step 3: Glue the tail to a piece of elastic that will fit around your little pig’s waist

Step 4: Twist the tail in a curly pig shape
