DIY Dinosaur Tails Inspired By The Good Dinosaur

Create Your Own Dinosaur Tails!

Materials and Tools

2 shades of green felt
Fabric scissors
Tape
Pen
Elastic strap
Hot glue gun
Safety pins

For additional tails of different colors, use 2 shades of the chosen color(s).

Step 1

Draw the shape of a dinosaur tail on your light green felt, making sure to leave an extra 2-3 inches at the top.  Cut out your tail.

Step 2

Draw nebulous shapes on the dark green felt and cut them out.

Step 3

Adhere the nebulous shapes to the tail with hot glue.

Step 4

Fold the top edge over and hot glue in place. Be sure to leave an opening for the elastic strap to slide through.

Step 5

Cut a piece of elastic strap that is slightly longer than your child’s waist.  Add a safety pin to the end of the elastic strap, then file the strap through the top of the tail.

Step 6

Remove the safety pin and tie the ends of the elastic strap together.  Rotate the strap so that the tied portion is covered by the folded part of the tail.
