Cheap DIY Infant Halloween Costume

This is one of my favorite pics from Brenna's first Halloween when she was only 2 months old.  I wasn't really sure what I wanted to dress her up as and let's face it, as a mom of a 2 month old, I didn't really have my act together yet.  At the last minute I came up with this DIY, no-sew infant cow costume. 


Total cost:  Under $3

Supplies Needed:

1) Plain white onsie
2) Sticky-back black felt
3) Tiny Cowbell (located in craft supplies isle)
4) String/Ribbon for the cowbell necklace

All you have to do is cut irregular shaped patches out of your sticky-backed felt and plop them on a onsie.  Then string a little cowbell through a piece of ribbon and you're done.  Moo.

Here's another cute DIY Infant costume from my pal Michelle of The Real Life Mom.  Her skeleton/ballerina is so cute! 


She also did a post recently on  How to Make your Own Fairy Wings!  Check it out!
