The idyllic little world of Winnie the Pooh is populated by unforgettable characters loved by children and adults alike. The high-spirited Tigger, with his endearing habit of bouncing on his tail, is a particular favourite among little ones who are full of energy themselves. Fortunately, making a Tigger costume is quick and affordable. Gear up for Halloween or just stock your child's costume box with this simple craft.

  1. 1

    Lay the orange sweatshirt flat on your work space. Draw tiger stripes over the entire shirt with a black permanent marker. Flip the sweatshirt over and draw more tiger stripes on the other side.

  2. 2

    Lay the orange sweat pants on your work space. Draw tiger stripes all over the trousers with a black permanent marker. Flip the trousers over and do the same on the other side.

  3. 3

    Draw black stripes on the knee-high orange sock. Fill the sock with cotton stuffing until it resembles a tail.

  4. 4

    Close the open end of the tail with a rubber band. Safety pin the tail to the back of the trousers' waistband.

  5. 5

    Cut two ear-shaped pieces out of orange felt. Attach them to the orange hat with a hot glue gun.

  6. 6

    Paint a black triangle on your child's nose with face paint. Paint black and orange stripes radiating from the centre of her face.

Tips and warnings

  • Attach the tail high enough that it will not get in the way when your child sits down.
  • Always supervise children when playing with homemade costumes as small pieces could come off and pose a choking hazard.
