Raven Costume

Time: About 1 hour

Effort: Easy - no sewing required

Materials:

  • Black mask
  • Black feathers
  • Black construction paper (1 piece)
  • Black feather boa
  • Black ribbon (1 to 2 feet)
  • Purple and blue puff fabric paint
  • Glue gun
  • Safety pins
  • 1 yard black netting
  • Black pants and sweat shirt

Instructions: Glue the black feathers around the edge of the mask. Cut a triangle out of the construction paper and fold it to form a beak. Glue onto the mask. Using the puff paint, fill in around the mask as much as you like. (Building up layers adds depth and looks more like feathers.) Measure the boa and cut into lengths to fit around the neck and the wrists. Tie the ends with ribbons. Gather up the netting in different lengths to form the tail. Pin to the back of the pants. You are now a raven (or "Big Bird gone Goth").
