Everyone knows about Snoopy. He’s that cute, lovable, non-speaking dog from the Charlie Brown cartoons that we’ve all come to love over the years. And you’re in luck. Why? Because it’s actually pretty easy to make a Snoopy costume. So let’s get started.
You remember him don’t you? Everyone knows Snoopy – he’s that great dog from the Charlie Brown cartoons that we grew up with. Plus, and this is important, you’re in luck because it’s actually pretty easy to make a Snoopy costume in the first place. So let’s get started right away.
First of all, you will need two white sheets. Don’t try to short cut it with pillow cases either. These sheets need to be at least twin size. line the two sheets up with one right next to the other. You should do this on the floor so that you can easily spread them out full length and flatten out all of the wrinkles. Also, be sure to situate them so that you can easily fold one over the other.
And now you’ll want to take your hot-glue gun and make a hot-glue oval on the top one third of the flat sheet. Then, quickly fold it over onto the other sheet and press it down so that the glue bonds the two sheets together. This is going to be Snoopy’s face. Cut this part out and lay it to the side as it cools.
Next, make two boxing-glove sized circles with the rest of the sheet. Use the hot-glue to outline them the same way that you outlined Snoopy’s face. Fold the sheet over each circle and press down. These will be Snoopy’s paws – an intricate part of any Snoopy Halloween costume. Remember to make them large enough so that you can put your hands in them. Cut them out and set to the side. I find that the girls love the paws even more if they are more on the large side.
Next, take your two cut circles and your large oval head and cut smaller half circle into the sides of each. The circle should cut into the hot-glue portion. These holes will be where you put the stuffing through to fluff up the pieces. They will also be where you put your hands through. Keep in mind that you will be wearing Snoopy’s head like a hat, so don’t make that hole so big that your head falls through it.
And now it’s time to take your 2 cut circles and your large oval head and cut smaller half circle into the sides of each. The circle should be cut inside the hot-glued portion. These holes will be where you put the filling through to fluff up the pieces for your Snoopy costume. They will also be where you put your hands through. You will be wearing Snoopy’s head like a hat when it’s complete, so don’t make that hole so big that your head goes through it.
On Snoopy’s face, cut two slits near the hole for you head and find ribbon, string, or shoe laces to tie it down to your head like a big fluffy hat. Add some white tight or sweats to cover the rest of your body and a pair of white tennis shoes and socks and you’re done.
