- royal blue crew neck, long-sleeved tee (you can grab one here or here)
- royal blue ball cap (here’s a great option)
- sun yellow felt
- costume dog ears, or brown felt (some great costume ears)
- spray glue, or yellow thread
- fabric scissors
Trace two Dog Man symbols onto the yellow felt. One large for the shirt, one smaller for the hat. Cut out.
Spray the glue on the back of each symbol one at a time. Carefully place in the middle of the shirt & pat down. Carefully place in the middle of the hat and pat well. (You could use yellow thread instead. I used glue to save time.)
Outline the felt in black.
Next, align the dog ears inside the hat. I found a dog ear headband at Party Galaxy and cut out the plastic band.
Using the sticky Velcro, attach ears to inside of hat.
Add some face paint and you have an adorable Dog Man!
Is he not the cutest? I’d love to see your cute Dog Man too! Feel free to tag @Splendry on social media with your pictures from Halloween or book fairs!!
