How To: Make Jailbird

What You Need
White hooded sweatshirt jacket

Black pants

White tape

Yellow baseball cap

Marabou boa (white and black)


1. Cut marabou and glue to the body of the hooded sweatshirt. Leave the sleeves bare. (Alternate between white and black to create stripes.) 

2. Add stripes to the pants with the white tape. (You’ll want to apply every 3 to 4 inches.)

How To: Make Hat
1. Glue yellow baseball cap to the inside of the hooded sweatshirt. (Only the bill of the cap should be exposed.)

2. Glue black buttons to make the eyes.
