    How to make the Beast's felt mask

    1. Print and cut out the mask templates.
    2. Tape the two halves of the face template together.
    3. Place the templates over the felt: The teeth should be on white, the beard and eyebrows should be on beige, the horns and nose should be on dark brown, the face on mid-brown, and the lips, nose bridge and ears on light brown. Draw around the templates directly onto your felt. Cut out the pieces of felt following your lines.
    4. Cut eye holes and a mouth into the face felt, to fit your child’s face.
    5. Start by gluing the ears to the side of the mask, then adding the horns, followed by the eyebrows so that they sit just above your eye holes.
    6. Glue the nose to the face mask, then add the nose bridge on top.
    7. Glue the nose to the face mask, then add the nose bridge on top. Glue the teeth just below the mouth slit you created in the mask. Add the beard the base of the teeth, and finish by gluing the lip over both.

    How to make the Beast's reversible cloak

    1. Glue the red felt to the blue felt to create the double-sided cape.
    2. Print and cut out the Beast’s Reversible Cape template using the ‘Download Resources’ button above.
    3. Fold the cape in half length-ways and place the template at the top. Align the cut-out circle of the template with the folded side of the cape. Trace around the template and cut along your lines. When you open your cape out again you should have a hole for your child’s neck. Cut to open the circle out and make it adjustable.
