Welcome to the third installment of the weekly craft round-up! This week’s entry is going to combine my halloween costume and the crafty links for the week. You can find the first round-up here And the second one here
For my costume, I was inspired by this tutorial on making fake black birds on Dollar Store Crafts. I can never justify spending a wad of cash on a Halloween costume, so I began plotting on how I could get by on the cheap with this.
1 gray suit: on hand
1 pair vintage-esque heels: on hand
1 vintage-esque clutch: on hand
blonde hair: thanks genetics!
fake blood: red face paint, on hand
bandage for my fake wound: on hand from our first aid supplies
And the only expense for my costume,
4 black birds from the Dollar Tree: $4
And in the remastered, colorized version
And if you’re still looking for some halloween costumes or crafts, try these links from my daily internet rovings.
If I had seen this in time, this adorable owl costume would have been a clever idea.
How cute are these halloween hair barrettes?
Amigurumi zombies. Enough said.
And of course, my very own Brain Slug pattern. It wouldn’t be a halloween without a brain slug, right?
Happy Halloween Everybody!
