KIDS: Llama Costume

I just love seeing kids dressed up as animals. This DIY llama costume by Oh Happy Day is just too adorable! The hardest part is making the llama’s head, but otherwise you could pair it with a super cute furry jacket and leggings like this girl is wearing, or you could even just use simple tan leggings and a long sleeved tshirt.

What’s so clever is that this costume is made mostly from a knitted beanie (filled with stuffing), and an old mop head. You can use felt to create eyelashes and rubber bands to create ears. Be sure to stop by Oh Happy Day for the full tutorial.

KIDS: Easy Lion Costume

Not only is this lion costume by A Night Owl Blog ridiculously adorable, it’s also super easy to make. There is absolutely no sewing required, and all you really need is yarn and scissors to make the mane. Then just add on a nose ans whiskers with brown eye liner or face paint, and pair it with a yellow tshirt and jeans.

All you really need to know how to do is to make pom poms out of yarn. This lion costume would be perfect for Halloween, or a special costume party, but it’s also so cute and simple it would be a fun craft to make and to add to your kid’s costume collection for fun and creative dress-up play.

ADULTS: Deer Costume

This DIY deer costume from Flattery is especially beautiful. The hardest part about this costume is probably making the antlers, which are made out of aluminum foil and paper mache. The body of the costume is made with a brown unitard, some furry fabric, a little felt, and some fabric paint. The most dramatic part of the costume is the deer makeup. You will need a white eye crayon, or white face paint to create the white deer eyes, but otherwise the makeup is pretty standard.

BABY: Cow Costume with an Udder

There’s something so adorable about a baby in a costume. I especially love DIY costumes that are made with a onesie. This cow costume by Make It & Love It is just perfect. The cow onesie is really simple and easy to make, and you could definitely make it without a sewing machine or sewing at all. The fleece hat is slightly more complicated, but it is easier than you might think with a free pattern. Even if you don’t have a sewing machine, you could hand stitch this little hat pretty quickly. And of course the UDDER is the cutest and most hilarious part of all.

BABY: Crochet Bunny Ears

These crochet bunny ears are just about the cutest things ever! Pikadilly Charm shares a great tutorial, along with a free pattern. I especially love the floppy bunny ears. This would be a perfect craft to make for a special baby for Easter (or any occasion. Animal ears on babies are the best!) You could also play around with different colors of yarn. This white and pink combo is perfect, but I would also love one in shades of gray.
