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!
I admit that I am not much of a crafter, although, through practice and the 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.
Don’t miss out on this Garden Gnome Costume for another fun DIY costume.

I love it! She is the cutest little owl! I will have to pin this to remember to “encourage” Hazel to be an owl! Good job!

I love it!! She is the cutest and you are super creative 🙂
That is sooo cute! Great job on the costume!
Thanks, Monika! My mom helped me out a ton on it. She basically put the cape together and I did the hat.
I think this costume is so cute. You and your mom did a great job.
Oh Jillian, this is adorable! Miss Mia is just precious in the homemade costume!

This is such an adorable costume! I have a toddler who I’d like to make this for. I don’t like sewing either :). For the cape, was it just a square shape or did you make a scoop neck? And were the ribbons simply glued on too? Thanks in advance!
The cape is just a square without a scoop neck, looking back I wish I would have made a scoop neck because every once and a while it slipped off of her shoulders and I had to re-tie it. The ribbons were just simply glued on. Nothing was sewn. Good luck and I’m sure your little one will look adorable! 🙂
