When I think Seuss, I always think of The Cat in the Hat. Probably the first Seuss book I was introduced to, and still a favorite. I came up with a super simple way to replicate the hair for Thing 1 and Thing 2, so that you can make a simple DIY Thing 1 Costume (or Thing 2 costume). I’m absolutely in love with how this DIY Thing 1 and Thing 2 hair turned out!
I made this project as part of a special Craft Lightning series. This week, Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, Sarah from Mom Endeavors, and I are whipping up fast Seuss-inspired crafts that take 15 minutes or less. And, we’ve invited a bunch of our friends to join in! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to check out their Seussian crafts.
I’ve made a video that shows you how the hair is made, watch the video below, or scroll down for a photo step-by-step.
1.5 Blue feather boas per hat
Start by pulling the ears, eyes, and nose from the felt hat. I just pulled them off.
Using the hot glue, glue the boa in a spiral around the hat, starting at the base.
Keep gluing, until you’ve run out of boa. Add the second boa, keep going around until you reach the top. Cut the excess, then glue down the end. Find a red shirt for a super simple costume to go with your DIY Thing 1 and Thing 2 Hair! If you like, make a Duck Tape Cat in the Hat hat for a friend to wear!
