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
For the nose:
Supplies: coffee cup, pink felt, white felt, fabri-tac or glue gun, scissors, thin elastic, hole punch
Step 1: Cut the bottom of a coffee cup and wrap with a long piece of pink felt.
Step 2: Glue a circular piece of pink felt on top with 2 white pieces for the nostrils.
Step 3: Make 2 hole punches on each side and tie elastic around your little pig’s head
For the ears:
Supplies: White headband, pink felt, fabri-tac or glue gun, scissors
Step 1: Cut two large ear shapes.
Step 2: Pinch and wrap around the headband. Secure with glue.
