How Do I Make a Willy Wonka Jacket?
To create a Willy Wonka jacket, you’ll need to find a purple velvet smoking jacket. If you can’t find one that’s the right color, you can always dye it yourself. Once you have your jacket, you’ll need to add some gold trimmings. You can either buy these or make them yourself out of gold ribbon or fabric paint.
How Do I Make Willy Wonka’s Hat?
To start, you’ll need a brown felt top hat. Once you have your hat, cut out two long strips of purple felt and glue them around the hat so they overlap in the front. Finally, add some details like a golden ticket or chocolate bar.
How Do I Make Willy Wonka’s Cane?
One option is to start with a wooden dowel rod. To give the cane a more finished look, wrap the dowel in black electrical tape. You may also want to add some gold or silver details, such as wrapping the handle in a metallic ribbon. Once you’ve created the basic cane, you can add additional details to personalize your Willy Wonka costume. For example, you could glue on some candy wrappers or attach a small top hat.
