Super Shark

You’ll need:

  • Grey hoodie
  • Black felt
  • Grey sweatpants
  • Grey felt (for back fin)
  • Red felt
  • White felt

Directions for the hoodie:

Taking your white felt, trace out a repeating triangle strip and glue to the inside edge of the hood. Hot glue red felt to the entire inside of the hood, covering the inside edge of the white teeth. Next, cut an oval out of the white felt for the stomach area, cut two circles out of the black felt for eyes, and glue down on the hood. Lastly, cut out two triangles from the grey felt for the back fin. Glue the two triangles together, and then glue securely in between the shoulder blade area.

Magical Unicorn

You’ll need:

  • White hoodie
  • White sweatpants
  • Pink sparkle felt
  • White felt
  • Gold sparkle foam paper
  • Pink boa

Directions for the hoodie:

Grab your pink sparkle felt, cut an oval for the stomach area and glue down. Using the gold sparkle foam paper, roll the paper into a cone shape and hot glue the edge down. Make sure to cut the bottom of the cone into a flat shape before gluing it to the top of the hoodie! Cut out two small “bunny ear” shapes out of the white felt and repeat with two slightly smaller shapes out of the pink sparkle felt. Glue the pink ear on top of the white ear, pinch the base and then glue down next to the unicorn horn on top of the hood. To make the unicorn tail, simply hot glue a pink boa around the horn and down the back of the spine. Be sure to leave some of the boa hanging down to make the “tail”!

Peppy Pineapple

You’s need:

  • Oversized yellow T-shirt
  • Brown leggings
  • Brown felt
  • Green felt
  • Green construction paper
  • Thick headband
  • Green foam paper
  • Toilet paper roll

Directions for the headband:

Trace out a leaf shape on your construction paper and cut out five leaves. Repeat two more times, making two shorter sets. Hot glue the longer leaves to the base of the toilet paper roll, rotating the roll and overlapping the leaves as you glue. Continue gluing as you decrease in size. Cut the green foam paper to the width of the headband and hot glue to the top. Finish the look by gluing the toilet paper roll to the top of the headband, and bend the leaves to desired look.

Sweet Sushi

  • Oversized white T-shirt
  • Black leggings
  • Orange pillow case
  • White felt
  • Thick headband
  • Green foam paper
  • Lime green felt
  • Light pink felt
  • Black sash
  • Chopsticks

Directions for the headband:

Cut out a large circle from the light pink felt and a slightly smaller circle from the lime green felt. Gluing as you go, pinch a small section of the circle together and glue the pinch together until the whole circle is in a wavy bunch. Repeat with the lime green felt. Cut a small grass pattern out of the green foam paper and glue to the top of the headband. Glue the pink and green foam bunches in front of the foam paper. Add chopsticks in the hair for an added flare!

  • White T-shirt

Thoroughly measure the wheelchair. Using the measurements, cover a small cardboard box lid with yellow construction paper. Roll up construction paper into a tall tube, glue into place and spray paint entire tube black. Repeat for second tube. Hot glue both tubes to the bottom of the cardboard box lid and attach to wheelchair with fishing line.

For the wheels, cut out large circles of yellow construction paper equal to the same diameter of the wheels. Use hot glue or tape to secure the circles on to each wheel.

For the scoop, use the same yellow construction paper to cut out two large half-moon shapes and a large rectangle. Cut 4 “teeth-like” indentions into one of the short sides of the rectangle. Tape or hot glue the two half moon shapes to both long sides of the rectangle along the edges. Cut out two long pieces of card board and paint them black. Attach the black pieces of card board to the sides of the scoop with the “teeth” facing the front. When the scoop is complete, use the black cardboard pieces to attach the scoop to the front of the wheelchair. (use picture for reference)
