DIY Owl Costume

Speaking of Pinterest, I saw this cute pink owl costume and thought, "I could make that."  Well, I made it, but I am not itching to do that again.  The instructions said it would take fifty "feathers."  So I cut out fifty out of felt and flannel.  Yeah, it took WAY more than fifty. I felt like I would never get to stop making feathers.  I think fifty must have been to fit a two year old (not my seven year old.) The mask was surprisingly easy to make.  Overall, I would say this was doable, just time consuming.  Start early. The good thing is, this was probably the least expensive costume we have ever had for halloween if you can find a pink jacket for $3 like I did. You can find instructions and even templates here.
