The school that I work at is having a Dr. Seuss Themed Literacy night. Since I am working a station with another teacher and already had this costume, I decided I would make my partner one as well. It is super easy and cheap!!! Hope you enjoy :)
Materials you will need:
- White Foam Sheet (Michael's)
- Red Koozie (Michael's)
- White paper
- Hot glue gun
Find a cup that is bigger than the koozie and trace it on the foam sheet.
Cut the circle out.
Cut out two strips of paper that are a little less than an inch wide.
Hot glue both strips of paper around the koozie. I did trim the length of the strips just a little and just glued the ends down. I did not put glue all over the back, because you would see the glue through the paper.
Hot glue the koozie to the circle piece of white foam. Make sure to put it in the center before glueing it down.
Hot glue the hat to the handband, I glued mine about an inch or two from the center of the headband. I think it looks better on the side than sitting straight up on my head.
Now you can enjoy your new Cat in the Hat, mini hat! I have worn mine a couple of times since I made it a few years ago. This school year I wore it for Halloween and Dr. Seuss' Birthday. Below are a few pictures from Halloween. I added some whiskers on my face with liquid eyeliner and I found a sparkly bowtie from a previous costume. And with that I paired it with a red top and black leggings.
Until next time!
