|Lil' G, trick or treating|
Black hoodie (old, had on hand)
Black feather boa ($2)
Googly eyes ($2)
Stiff craft felt, black ($1.75)
scissors (on hand)
black thread and needle (on hand)
Hot glue gun (on hand)
1. Thread your needle, and use to attach the boa to the back and arms of the hoodie, in a T shape on the back. This gives you 2 wings and a tail! I just anchored it in several places with tight stitches.
2. Cut a triangle 'beak' out of the stiff black felt. Sew it and a few feathers along the top of the hood. It doesn't have to be perfect!
3. Use the hot glue gun on med-low, and attach the googly eyes to the hood.
There you go, an adorable costume in 5 minutes! The pieces all stayed put all night. For a quick "I need a costume NOW" fix, this was great. My daughter was the hit of the party, and several moms asked me to make birdy costumes for their kids! This can be adapted to pretty much any bird.
