Baby Dragon Costume

Jim Bastardo

Your little guy will be perfectly sweet, not scary, with glittering scales of scouring pads!

  • 1 yard green felt
  • Green hoodie
  • 1 yard green rickrack
  • Green scouring pads
  • 2 small plastic cups
  • Green craft paint
  • 2 bicycle reflectors
  • 12 inches red rickrack
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Green romper
  • Green socks

Tail:

Cut a 20-inch piece of green felt and twist it into a cone. Press the cone flat and glue it to back of hoodie, with pointed edge hanging down. Glue rickrack from center of hood front down to tip of tail. Cut scouring pads in half diagonally and glue them onto rickrack trim.

Snout:

Paint plastic cups green; glue reflectors across the top of each. Trim with red rickrack, as shown. Glue cup bottoms to front edge of hood.

Ears:

Cut out 4 green-felt triangles. Cut pipe cleaner in half; sandwich each half between 2 triangles and glue edges together. Glue ears to hood and gently bend, as shown.

Toolbox: You'll need a hot-glue gun, glue sticksĀ and scissors. All materials available at crafts shops, unless noted.

Safety note: If your child tends to chew on things, use caution with pom-poms and small decorations.
