WHAT YOU NEED

  • 1 black headband
  • ½ yard or remnant piece of faux fur fabric
  • 1 sheet of black craft foam
  • Craft glue gun
  • Safety scissors
  • 12-inch length of 1-inch-wide black ribbon
  • 6-inch length of narrow (1/8-inch) black ribbon
  • Silver jingle bell (1-inch in diameter)
  • Black sweatpants and sweatshirt
  • 2-foot length of black boa (available at fabric stores)
  • 1 safety pin
  • 1 sheet or package of velcro® dots

 

HOW TO DO IT

  • Print out the ear template.

  • Cut out two ears from black craft foam.

  • Create the cat’s ears by wrapping the craft foam cut-outs on either side of the top of the headband.  Glue in place.

  • For an added feline touch, cut out additional ear cut-outs from the faux fur and glue on top of the craft foam.

  • To make a cat collar, wrap the 1 inch wide ribbon loosely around your child’s neck, leaving a 1-inch overlap.

  • Place a self-adhesive Velcro® dot on each end of the ribbon to secure.

  • Tie a jingle bell to the front of the collar with the narrow black ribbon.

  • For a fluffy tail, pin a length of black boa to the back of your child’s sweatpants. Trim off any excess so your cat won’t trip!
