Hot glue sticks and glue gun
4. Boots
5.

To create the signature Duck Dynasty 
beard and side burns, start with the designer fur swatch available in local craft stores or online at amazon.com. Cut the sheet of fur 1.75” from the bottom and then 1.75” from the side. These two pieces are the side burns. Then, with the remaining center piece, trim the edges to form a trapezoid figure in the shape of a beard. Roll the bandana as if to tie it around head, then hot glue the side burns to each side of bandana. Attach elastic to the beard shaped piece so it fits snug around head. Spray the fur with hairspray and shape it into an unkempt beard.

Then, tie the bandana around head and place the beard around the face using the elastic. To complete the costume, carry a duck call, duck decoy or stuffed plush mallard duck. As additional accessories, carry a bow and arrow or binoculars. Gals, make this a couples costume by dressing up as Miss Kay.
