Around this time of year, we always pull out our felt chicken hats for Oktoberfest. But this was the first year since Kevin and I have lived in Cincinnati that we didn’t make it. So our hats stayed in the closet and instead I decided to make some fun felt Halloween hats for the girls! First up, the felt pumpkin hat!
You can easily spend a fortune on Halloween costumes, and still end up with cheap costumes that leave glitter all over the house (girl mom here!)… And for what? One night of covering the costume with a coat and trick or treating for 2 hours for a bag of candy that cost $2 at the local grocery store…
Thankfully my girls love to play dress ups year round so I just think of costumes as new toys to add to their closets, but I’m still looking for affordable Halloween costumes that don’t lack in quality (especially since we like to reuse them 😉 )!
When I spotted these felt stickers, meant for decorating pumpkins, I knew I needed them! But I needed them for something else I had planned! I wanted to make some fun Halloween photo booth props with Anabelle and was thrilled when I realized these were already cut decorated and ready to go!
I though why not save on time? No template needed, cheap, and already cut perfectly! I mean the project was half done for me!
Of course, Anabelle called the cat. She has something going for cats right now, perfect timing for Halloween!
Gosh kids make goofy holidays so fun! And these felt animal masks make it even better!
I made these felt dalmatian ears two years ago and Anabelle still will find them and slip them on to be a puppy! So this year I asked her if she wanted to make a dalmatian mask. She told me Betty wanted a dalmatian and she wanted a cat! Sooo… since we seem to be going with a household pet theme for our felt pet masks, I figured I’d tack on a bird as well!
