So Halloween is close, very very close, yet I still don’t have a costume. Here is the last minute costume 2 hours to finish!
If you are anything like me, DO NOT WORRY! I got you covered! To quote Mean Girls, ” In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”
Absolutely love this movie, but…. I can do without dressing up like a slut. So let’s just stick an animal ear on our heads without the lingerie.
To make an animal ear you’ll need
- Plain Headband of your choice
- Fabric of your choice
- Needles and Thread
- Possibly hot glue, if you get lazy no judgement here 😀
Step 1. Make the ear shape.
For my bunny ears I measured out 2 pieces of wires roughly same length and shape them with pliers or hand.
Step 2. Cut out a piece of fabric big enough to cover the ear shape.
At first I used a mesh fabric, it became a little slippery for the next step, so I switched it out for a lace with some stretch.
Step 3. Sew the fabric onto the wire. Or hot glue whichever you like. I sewed mine like so…
Then trim off the extra fabric
Step 4. Lastly attach the ears onto a headband. Here I used a plain metal headband I picked up from the craft store.
Tada~ You can shape it too! Throw on a black dress or something then you got yourself a last-ditch effort costume!
With the same idea you can make all kinds of animal ears.
