Here’s a special treat for you today. I recently came across this adorable DIY project which would make for some afternoon fun. This is so easy you won’t need superior sewing skills to make this. This is for a strap-on dinosaur tail that’s perfect for pretend play and as a Halloween costume.
Depending on the type of fabric that you choose to work with, girls and boys will surely enjoy these tails. My daughter wore it every day for one whole month. She could be a fairy or a princess, only with a dragon tail. Sometimes, she’d pair it up with a bright-colored tutu.
Your kids will love this, that’s a guarantee. It stimulates creativity and imagination. They love swishing the tails back and forth or dragging them while walking around the neighborhood. They already asked me to make more for some of their friends.
- 1/2 to 3/4 yard main fabric
