Elmo Inspired Costume
(Our pieces available for ages 2-5 years)
I don’t know anyone who didn’t grow up watching Sesame Street. Elmo was always one of my favorite characters, and this costume was super easy and fun to make with products from Always Under Pay.
Red 7/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (about one yard)
Styrofoam Cup or other Round Object to Trace for Eyes
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Use the marker to trace your round object for Elmo’s eyes (I used a Styrofoam disposable cup).
Cut the eyes you just traced out of the felt, then hot glue two black felt circles onto the centers of the eyes.
Free hand draw a nose for Elmo with your marker and cut it out. I set my eyes on the orange felt to help me scale the nose correctly.
Free hand draw a mouth for your Elmo’s face onto a piece of scratch paper. Use it as a stencil to cut your mouth out of the black felt.
Now you should have your whole face cut out. I just set mine all up together on the table to make sure that it looked right to me.
