Make this reptile for an especially creepy effect.
What to do
Place the seamed end of the pillowcase at the top of the costume. Cut a jagged neck opening and armholes. Cut a small U-shaped opening in the centre of the hemmed end to create legs. Feed green yarn through the hem to form a drawstring for each leg. Unwrap a green crayon and rub it on its side to colour the costume.Draw scales on the costume with black marker pen. Cut a tail from green vinyl and staple it to the costume. Create a mask pattern and cut it out. Cut out mask (with eyeholes) from the vinyl. Glue black yarn to mask to decorate eyes and form shapes around the mouth. Cut out a lizard tongue using the red felt. Staple in place. Punch holes and add yarn ties to mask.
