Adorable Dog in Fairy Halloween Costume H. Camille Smith

Materials Needed:

  • 2 sheets of blue glittered card stock
  • 2 sheets of purple glittered card stock
  • sharp scissors
  • scrap paper for template
  • pencil
  • craft knife
  • glue stick
  • spray adhesive
  • 3" foam sphere
  • serrated or electric knife
  • old candle (optional)
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • clear glitter
  • pink acrylic paint
  • chip brush
  • vest, jacket (or any other clothing item that attaches under their tummy) that snugly but comfortably fits pet

Cut Out Wings

First, create a template by sketching a wing shape onto scrap paper — these can be any shape you'd like but keep the size proportionate with your pup. When you're happy with the shape, cut out the template then add a small square of paper to the wing's center. On the back of each piece of card stock, trace 2 wings — making sure to flip the pattern over when tracing the second wing (Image 1). Use scissors to cut out wings. You should have 4 total wings for each color as shown below (Image 2).

Glue Wings Together

Using a glue stick, adhere wing cut-outs together so each glittered wing has a front and back side.

Paint and Glitter Foam

Using a serrated knife, cut foam sphere in half (this will be used to keep wings stationary). Tip: Rubbing an old candle over the teeth of the blade will make cutting easier. On a protected work surface, paint foam half with pink craft paint (Image 1). After paint has fully dried, coat foam half with spray adhesive. Allow a minute or two for adhesive to tack up then sprinkle on glitter (Image 2).
