What a glorious week it is to be a Chicagoan! Last night we all watched as the Chicago Blackhawks took home the Stanley Cup. With the parade on Thursday, the fans are rushing to their nearest sports outfitters for official Stanley Cup Gear. If you don’t have the money or time, opt for an at-home craft that is perfect for you and your kiddies (pups included) to get in the spirit of The Cup!
- Craft Felt- Black, red, green, yellow, orange
- Hot Glue Gun
- Red Rhinestones
- Barrette clip or headband elastic
- Puffy Paint- White, blue, green, yellow
Get creative! Using a Blackhawk logo as your guide, cut out feathers to your liking. It’s all about experimenting with size and shape here. You don’t have to be precise!
Once you’ve gotten all of your feathers cut out and in order, add a small green felt circle to tie it all together. Position it and get gluein’!
After you’ve glued all of the feathers together, grab your red rhinestone and apply to the center of your green felt square (gives it some flair!)
Gorgeous! Now glue your completed head dress to a piece of black felt and cut around the feathers. This gives a nice base for the feathers and holds it all together.
How easy was that!? Let your puffy paint dry for several hours, or to be safe- overnight. Then add your barrette to the back and you’ve got yourself the perfect fan accessory!
