Create the mask and ears:
- Cut a strip of black felt that fits around the wearer's head. Place felt over the eyes and mark where the eye openings should be with a marker.
- Cut out the eye openings and cut small a semi-circle along the bottom middle edge to reveal the nose. Secure around head with fabric tape.
- Cut two pointy ears from black felt and glue to a headband for the ears.
- For an alternate way, use face paint.
