At Primary, we take Halloween *very* seriously — to us, there’s nothing spookier than not having a costume ready once October hits. We also recognize that there’s no need to break your back (or the bank) to make your child’s wildest costume dreams come alive. As part of our DIY costume guide series, here’s how to make pin-on tail, inspired by our furred and feathered friends…
1. Gather your materials! Start with scissors, hot glue, a safety pin, and 2 pieces of felt in your color of choice.
2. Layer 2 pieces of felt at a time horizontally, and cut vertical strips on both sides, stopping a third of the way to the middle. Repeat for the other 2 pieces of felt.
3. Separate the sheets, and line them up horizontally. Use hot glue to seal the sides together and their ends. Knot strips together, twist and fluff for optimal furry tail vibes.
4. Pin to a hoodie and brush away any candy thieves!
