How to Make
Step One: Peppa is practically unrecognizable without her red dress! Cut the sleeves off of your oversized red t-shirt to make her signature wardrobe staple.
Step Two: Create your own treat sack by hot gluing two sheets of green felt together. Glue some brown ribbon around the edges to make the trim, leaving extra ribbon at the top to make your sack’s built-in handles!
Step Three: Add some extra Peppa-themed flair to your bag by cutting some muddy puddle and droplet shapes out of a piece of brown felt, then hot-gluing them on. Set sack aside to dry.
Step Four: Make a stencil out of construction paper, then trace it over some light pink felt and cut to make Peppa’s ears (use photo for reference). After you cut them out, fold each ear around a pink hairband and hot glue the front and back of each ear together.
Step Five: Cut a small piece off of a light pink pool noodle to make Peppa’s nose! Trace and cut the base of the noodle onto a piece of light pink felt. Then, cut a thick strip off of the light pink felt to wrap around the side of the nose. With a pink fabric marker, draw Peppa’s snout details onto the front of the felt circle. Lastly, glue the felt pieces onto the pool noodle, and adhere to both sides to a piece of elastic string.
Step Six: Curl a pink pipe cleaner to make Peppa’s tail and finish the look!
Now that you’ve gotten all of your costume pieces together, your child is ready for a Peppa-filled night of trick-or-treating and some muddy puddle jumping.
