Everyone loves my Monster book of monsters so I thought I'd share how I made him! I've also made some mini versions on photo albums and they turned out really cute too. It's the perfect prop for a Harry Potter party, or just as a Halloween decoration!
Step 1: Get Supplies
You need a base to make your book off of - for my main one I used an old looking book I found at a thrift store, for my mini ones I used photo albums. You also need the fur - I haven't tried fake fur yet but I'm sure it would work also but I wanted mine to look as close to the movie prop as possible and fake fur didn't quite fit. I used real fur from an old coat we got at a thrift store and I also used a rabbit fur for one of the mini books. I used some plastic eyes that are used for toys that I found at the thrift store but you can also find them at craft stores, for the smaller books I only used 3 eyes instead of 4. For the eye base and teeth I used Skulpey - clay that you can mold and then bake in the oven. You'll also need some fabric for the tongue, for the big book I used red cotton and for the little books I used red felt. Lastly you need some brown paint and hot glue.
So in short his a list of things needed:
Book or photo album
Piece of fur big enough to go around book
skulpey clay (red, white, and black color)
3 to 4 plastic eyes
