I talked about my major Halloween #fail in this post last week, but even though the house wasn’t decorated, I did manage to get my girls costumes done. We also had a family day complete with pumpkin patch and pumpkin carving. So, here’s a little Halloween wrap-up and a quick tutorial on my 2-hour DIY infant costumes.
Halloween Owl Onesie Supplies:
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Long-sleeve onesie
- Baby hat
- Needle and thread
Halloween Owl Onesie Tutorial:
1) Cut feather shapes about as thick as your thumb and as long as your index finger. You can mix and match colors or go with one color, whatever your preference, 2) Use your hot glue gun to glue the feathers to your onesie. Start at the bottom, slightly overlap each feather and make sure each row is off-center to the previous row. I only did four rows in the front because my girls are little and they didn’t need a bulky elaborate costume, but you can definitely make this costume much more elaborate with more feathers, more rows, completing the back, etc., 3) Glue ears to the top of a baby cap. My hats already had ears on them, so it gave me a good base to glue the felt ears, 4) Cut out round circles, like your making glasses and a small peeked nose and tack them together using needle and thread, 5) Attach a piece of elastic the the eye/nose combo using hot glue.
My girls had a time with the eye/nose attachment, so we just had it sitting on the top of their hats, which was equally as cute.
The girls seemed underwhelmed by the pumpkin patch, but Jeremiah and I had fun!!
They didn’t cooperate for photos, but outtakes are just as fun, right?
Jeremiah and I carved pumpkins. Kayleigh squealed at the pumpkin guts and then drooled inside my pumpkin.
We even managed to get a family photo, which NEVER happens! All-in-all it was a great day. Sometimes you just have to make it work. Happy Halloween!
