How to make  a no-sew animal costume tail

Do you want to make an animal costume for a fancy dress party, Halloween, or World Book Day? Don't forget to include the tail!

1. Where do I begin?  to make an animal costume

To begin, cut a long sock or pair of tights to the size you desire for your tail.

2. Fill it with stuffing

Cotton wool or tissue paper can be used to stuff the sock.

3. Finish with a tassel

Cut another strip from the sock and cut it into many small strips to produce a tassel. Then use a safety pin to secure it to the sock's end.

If it's easier for you, you can also stitch it in place.

4. Put it in place

Finally, secure your tail to your animal costume with another safety pin.

You'll need the following items to make an animal costume:

  • Socks or tights are acceptable options.
  • wool made of cotton
  • scissors
  • wool
  • a set of safety pins

This method can be used to manufacture any type of animal tail.

For various animals, simply alter the colors and socks or tights you're wearing.

Use animal print tights for huge cats, green tights with yellow felt dots for dinosaurs, and grey socks for donkeys, for example.

Kids will enjoy constructing the BFG's enormous ears, which are another popular character

You'll need the following items:

  • card in pink
  • hairband with a thin texture
  • a shirt in white
  • trousers in a dark color
  • a swatch of old fabric
  • a waistcoat or a black long-sleeved shirt

There are four simple steps to follow.

  1. Using the pink card, cut out two huge ear shapes and add details with a black pen.
  2. Glue or glue the ears to the hairband on either side.
  3. Attach an old fabric patch to the trousers with sewing or safety pins.
  4. If you don't have a waistcoat, cut the arms off a dark shirt to build one.

Ariel costume

In this adorable Ariel outfit, the Little Mermaid won't want to stay under the water.

You'll need the following items to make a Ariel costume:

  • Swimming outfit or pink vest top.
  • 1 meter of green tulle
  • To decorate, use stick-on jewels and sew-on flowers (optional)..
  • 2 meters of blue tulle
  • Elastic around the waist of your youngster.

Three simple steps to make a Ariel costume

1. Using the elastic, measure your child's waist (don't pull too tight!) Then add 2cm to this measurement and cut to fit, sewing it together securely with the 2cm overlap. 

Alternatively, leave 10 cm and tie it in a knot for speed.

2. Cut 4cm-wide strips of blue tulle. Each strip should be looped over the waistband you've made and tied in the middle. 

Work your way around the waistband until it appears full. Then, on top of it, place the green tulle strips.

To make the skirt into a fishtail shape, tie a length of green tulle around the legs above the knees (keep it above the knees so it's easy to walk and go to the bathroom!).

3. Use either knots or a couple of stitches to link the green tulle strips at intervals down the length as indicated, then cover each join with a sparkly gem (optional).

Willy Wonka's  costume

Who wouldn't dream of owning their own chocolate factory? This is a simple costume to put together using clothes they already own or inexpensive items.

You'll need the following items:

  • Trousers in beige.
  • a bow tie
  • blazer or a well-fitting sweater/cardigan
  • a top hat
  • To complete the look, borrow a cane or a walking stick.

Two simple steps to make a Willy Wonka's  costume

  1. If you don't have access to a bow tie, construct your own by tying a strip of patterned cloth – one of Dad's old ties, for example – in a bow and cutting to size, gluing or sewing the edge over to keep it from fraying.
  2. Include extras like a golden ticket made of shining paper that may be tucked into a jacket pocket or attached to the top hat.

Buzz light year outfit

We adore this ingenious use of a hoodie to create a costume! Buzz will be ready for infinity and beyond with the addition of cardboard "wings"...

You'll need the following items:

  • Grey tracksuit with a plain design.
  • For the buttons, a small piece of colored felt was used.
  • The wings are attached with elastic.
  • Wellies with a variety of colors.
  • Fabric in purple and green (e.g. felt).
  • Box made of cardboard.
  • Paints.
  • Wundaweb hemming tape, for example.

There are five simple steps to follow

1. Use purple cloth to cover the hood of the shirt and sew or stick it in place.

2. Cut out the green and purple shapes as shown and stick or sew them onto the hoodie's front.

3. Stick or sew buttons made out of felt circles.

4. Cut a pair of wings out of the cardboard box and paint them purple and green. Make two shoulder straps out of elastic, cut holes to attach them, and secure them with a knot.

5. Finish with a pair of bright wellies, preferably green or purple to match.
