Happy Friday! Today I am sharing an exciting round up with you – I’ve teamed up with Jamie Dorobek and her site, Really Awesome Costumes as well as 80+ other bloggers to share with you a ton of DIY Halloween costumes for everyone including your pets, family costumes, and even a trunk or treat idea!
I’m already to the point this year that I think my daughters are going to have multiple costumes. Too many cute ones to choose from!
For our Fashionable Cat Costume we ended up making some cheap and easy cat ears to go along with some clothes we already had. I love costumes that incorporate clothes. I am not a big fan of the fake plastic costume clothes from the Halloween store.
To make some cat ears you will need: 1 yard of fur boa from the fabric store, pink craft felt, a headband, glue gun.
1: Cut the pink craft felt into two triangles. 2: Use the glue gun and glue the fur boa around the triangle’s edge. 3: Glue some of the fur boa to the back of the ear. Each of my ears used approximately 9 inches of fur boa. 4: Glue the ears to the headband.
For the rest of the costume we used a black and white stripe shirt from J Crew, black leggings from Janie and Jack, and a fur vest from Target! Be sure to head on over and see all the other amazing costumes!
