This year for Halloween my friends and I all agreed we should dress up as Jim Henson characters. Animal is definitely the coolest one (in my opinion) so he was the obvious choice.
To make his head I took a baseball cap and felt and stuffed the hat to bulk it up. The eyes and nose are foam balls covered in felt and his eyebrows are black feathers. The mouth is a Styrofoam ring that I cut in half and covered with felt, and the teeth are also made from felt and stuffed to make them have dimension. The hair is a combination of red and pink yarn and a fun fur type of yarn I found at the craft store. His cuffs are also made from felt.
Got a pair of drumsticks and the transformation of the DIY Animal Halloween Costume was complete!
