Devil’s Horns Tutorial

Materials:

Step One:

Freehand cut two small triangles from your cardboard pieces. It’s ok if they look a bit wonky as long as they are about the same size. You won’t notice once we’re done.

Now trace the cardboard triangle shapes onto the felt with the pen. If you use bright colors, it will show up against the felt. If you look closely, you can see the marker in the photos below.

Cut four triangle ear shapes out of the felt (two for each ear). You’ll want to cut the felt a little longer than your cardboard so we can use that bit of felt to stabilize and secure the ears to the headband later.

Step Two:

Using the hot glue gun, glue the cardboard triangles that you cut to the inside of two of your felt ear pieces. Now, hot glue the other two pieces of felt on top of the cardboard triangles sandwiching the cardboard piece in between.

**DO NOT glue the edges by your little tabs that I told you were for stability. Leave that piece open for now.

Step Three:

Bend back your two tabs to expose the cardboard inside of the ear piece. Put a good glob of hot glue along the edge of that cardboard and then stick the glue to the outside edge of the headband. Hold it there for about 30 seconds to let it dry before you repeat this with the other ear.

Step Four:

Now, trim off any excess felt that is too long to fold under the inside of the headband. Then, put a bead of hot glue on the inside edge of the headband where you will be securing your ears. Fold one felt piece over that glue and hold in place for about 30 seconds. Then, fold your second piece on top of that, adding more glue if necessary to adhere it.

Step Five:

Trim a piece of the marabou boa about long enough to go around one felt ear. Glue the felt to the ear and repeat on other side. Trim the feather pieces closer to your felt as needed. I also glued a small strip of boa between the ears as well.

Devil’s Top Tutorial

Thread your 7/8” black grosgrain ribbon through the holes in the center top of your crochet top. This will serve as a neck tie. Trim to the length you prefer, then heat seal the ends of the ribbon with a lighter so they won’t fray.

Devil’s Pitchfork Tutorial

Materials:

Step One:

Go to this webpage here and save the image of the pitchfork to your computer. Then, import it into a Word document, size as needed, and print it.

Step Two:

Cut the pitchfork shape out of the printed paper that you have and trace it onto your chipboard piece. Cut the pitchfork outline out of the chipboard. Then use the pitchfork template to cut out two red glitter pitchforks from your glitter material (I ripped my paper template, so I used the chipboard pitchfork to make my glitter ones).

Step Three:

Glue the backside of one of you red glitter pitchforks to your chipboard shape. I would suggest you start with the forks at the top, then do the straight pieces below the forks, and last the bottom rounder piece.

Then, turn it over and glue the other glitter piece onto the chipboard as well.

**Note**You can glue the bottom stem of your chipboard piece to ONE of the red glitter pieces, but do not glue it to both. This is where you need to stick your balloon stick in later.**

At this point you are going to want todo some trimming. Your front and back sides of the pitchfork are not going to match up perfectly. Trim around the edges with your scissors for a more uniform look.

Step Four:

Cut a small bit of 3/8” red grosgrain ribbon and hot glue it to the bottom end of your balloon stick.

Step Five:

Take your length of 3/8” red grosgrain ribbon and glue one at a slight angle on top of that small piece that you just glued on the end of the balloon stick.

Now start twisting that ribbon up and tightly wrapping it against the balloon stick. Use a bead of hot glue every few inches or so to secure it in place and keep it from unraveling. When you get to the end of the stick, just clip the ribbon and glue it down. This end doesn’t need to be pretty :)

Step Six:

Hot glue the unfinished end of your wrapped balloon stick inside of the stem on the pitchfork piece.

Step Seven:

Hot glue long pieces of the red glitter curling ribbon and the 3/8” organza ribbon to the outside of the stem. I glued three pieces to each side of the stem.

Then, add some more hot glue and glue a piece of marabou boa over the ribbons to cover up all of the glue and unfinished edges on the stem.

Devil’s Tail Tutorial

Free hand cut two large triangles from your red felt. I folded my felt in half and cut them both at once so they would match up perfectly.

Hot glue the end of the remaining piece of red marabou boa between the two triangles. Trim any loose feathers that are sticking out with the scissors, and trim boa to length as needed.
