How to Create It Yourself

If you want to bring your favorite Snapchat filter to life, you'll need:

  • Several colors of felt
  • Headbands
  • Scissors
  • Wooden kebab skewers or popsicle sticks
  • Wardrobe (or skin-friendly) tape
  • Hot glue gun

To achieve the puppy filter, simply create felt cutouts of puppy ears and features using a Snapchat selfie for reference. Attach the ears to your headbands, then attach the puppy nose to your own using wardrobe tape. Hold up a felt puppy tongue using a small wooden stick, and voila! You've brought Snapchat into the real world.
