Dress up as Snoopy, the lovable beagle from the Peanuts comic strip, for your next costume party or Halloween celebration. Use white clothing from your wardrobe to reduce the cost of the finished costume or shop at thrift stores for second-hand items. Add extra character to your costume by carrying around a small yellow stuffed bird to represent Snoopy's feathered friend, Woodstock.

  1. 1

    Crumple newspaper into a ball and tape the ball to the nose and mouth area of a full-face mask form to create the shape of Snoopy's snout. Add additional paper and tape until you are satisfied with the shape and size of the snout.

  2. 2

    Cut plaster cloth into three- to six-inch strips with scissors. Dip one strip at a time into a bowl of warm water and smooth the strip onto the mask over the newspaper. Continue to apply strips until the entire mask has been covered with the plaster cloth, including the eye holes. Let the mask dry completely.

  3. 3

    Apply a second layer of plaster cloth to the mask to increase the strength and durability of the mask. Let the second layer dry completely.

  4. 4

    Try the mask on and use a pen to mark the location of your eyes on the outside of the mask. Carefully cut eye holes into the mask at these marks with a craft knife.

  5. 5

    Paint the mask with white acrylic paint. When the paint is dry, add a round nose with black paint and outline the eye holes with black paint to create the appearance of round eyes.

  6. 6

    Cut one 12-inch circle and two snoopy ear shapes out of black felt. Attach the ears to the bonnet of a white hooded sweatshirt and the circle to the back of the sweatshirt with safety pins.

  7. 7

    Cut a four- to five-inch tail from white felt and pin the tail to the back of a pair of white sweatpants.
