Step 3: Tigger’s face is awfully hard to make from scratch, but not impossible. You may elect to use your own head for the look, but if not you can purchase the hooded mask. Make sure if you use your own face to add whiskers, a pink nose, and giant Tigger mouth with the proper striping.

Step 4: The scarf can be purple, green, red, a mixture of colors or anything you have on hand.

Step 5: The Santa hat can be the typical look with cotton rim and ball on the top. It could also be a wintery hat you have lying around.
