Do you have a wild thing at home? This DIY Where the Wild Things Are Monster Costume is PERFECT for your little one! Easy & fast to make!

The Bracelets/Anklets

  1. Cut felt into small strips about a half inch wide and 7 inches long
  2. Cut both types of yarn into 7 inch pieces
  3. Take a piece of your felt/yarn, fold in half and tie around outside of a hair tie. Continue tying around the hair tie, alternating felt and yarn until you fill the hair tie.
  4. Place the hair ties around your little ones wrists and ankles

The Collar

  1. Take ribbon and cut at an appropriate length to tie around your child’s neck. You want the collar to fit like a necklace would, not a choker 😉
  2. Cut strips of felt about a half inch wide and 15 inches long.
  3. Cut both types of yarn into 15 inch pieces
  4. Take a piece of your felt/yarn, fold in half and tie around the ribbon collar. Continue tying around the ribbon, alternating felt and yarn until you fill the ribbon, leaving a couple inches of ribbon free on each side to tie around your child’s neck
