I have had so many people ask about how I made the paper beard from the viking helmet post. So I thought I'd put together this post where you can download a free template and watch a short video on how easy it was to put together a DIY paper beard costume.
The beard is such an awesome dress up addition, and can add a lot of character to your costume.
You can have it scrunched up, straight or even with plaits. It's up to you how you want to style your beard.
The paper beard is so much fun and really quick to make for maximum effect. Great for those last minute costumes and you need to need to make a miracle happen overnight.
Things you will need for this little DIY:
~ Paper Beard Template (FREE)
~ Paper Packaging (a lot of parcels come with paper packaging now days, however you could use anything from newspaper to wrapping paper)
~ Paper shredder
~ A4 printer/paper
~ Glue stick
See how easy it is to make by watching this short video on how to use your general household paper shredder and paper packaging to make yourself a big bushy beard costume.
