DIY: Easy Breezy- Halloween Kitty Ears

Halloween is one of my all time favorite holidays- it's so great to dress up as whatever you want and it's also an excuse to eat your weight in candy corn.  I really wanted to put together an easy costume idea  and easy on your budget. :) Here is a really simple DIY for kitty ears for under a couple of bucks.
Supplies:
Felt- I used Black and Pink.
Headband- whatever you have on hand.
Glue
Scissors
1.  Fold black piece of felt and cut two little holes and put the head band through the holes.
2.  Cut your kitty ear. :) Aww how cute is that.
3.  Ok! Cut out your second kitty ear on the bend of the felt.
4.  Now you have 2 kitty ears.
5.  Fold your pink felt and cut out a little pink diamond. Cut the pink diamond into 2 triangles.
6.  Fold the black kitty ears around the head band and glue the two sides together. Do not glue them on the head band.  Just squeeze the two sides together and wait a 20 seconds for the glue to dry.
7.  Glue the pink triangles on the ears.
8.  I used a little black eyeliner for the nose and whiskers. And VIOLA! all done.

very cute! I've never done the cat costume before.

I'm still trying to decide what I want to be this year. And I have to think of something because I was invited to a Halloween party.

Cute Halloween outfit that's very well made. Personally I think Halloween sucks and probably won't be going out on it dressed up but this is still pretty cool.

My sister in law dresses as a cat every year. It's always such a great go-to costume when you decide to go to a Halloween party at the last minute.

Hm, I think I need to make some! (considering I live with so many cats and speak in meows most of the time....) So cute!

HazelandMare said...

That is so adorable! You are the cutest thing ever :) If I didn't already have my costume planned I would totally do this... though I might make some just for heck of it because they are so cute!
