I love Pinterest. I found this idea for an owl costume a few weeks ago and I knew I needed to convince Mia to be an owl for Halloween instead of a princess. I figure she’ll continue to want to be a princess from now to eternity so I didn’t feel too guilty talking her out of her princess aspirations. 🙂 I’m so glad I did because she won “Best Costume” in the kid’s division at our church Halloween party!
One thing I openly admit is that I am not much of a crafter, although through practice and patient tutelage of some friends and family I’ve been getting better. With that said, I don’t sew…quite frankly sewing makes me angry. Therefore I do not own a sewing machine so my trusty glue gun came to the rescue for this project.
For another fun DIY costume, don’t miss out on this Garden Gnome Costume.
