When Niko was still a few months old, I was into making foam caps for his costumes. But as he turned 11 months, his annoyance with these caps started and I can’t force a toddler to put on something that he doesn’t like or there would be chaos.
Then I started making head crowns (though he still doesn’t like them).
I made a wolf head crown for him to wear to our baby shower. I was so glad I found a red plaid shirt to match the woodcutter/wolf costume. The only problem was I don’t know where to buy a faux fur in Suriname. So, I thought of an alternative, wigs. I divided the wigs into three parts, two for the wrists and one for the neck. I attached Velcro tape at each end of the wigs so it’s easy to remove.

Wigs – Times Mall Suriname
Now for the head crown, I used foam papers. I created the wolf’s face using the pattern here: Wolf Gift Bag Tutorial for a Wolf Birthday Party
I only have grey and brown foam sheets, so the combination was really not that nice. (Sorry, but craft materials are not a lot here, I mean there’s not a lot of color choices).
