How to Create Your Own Owl Costume
Halloween is just around the corner, and everyone needs a costume that grabs eyeballs. Owls are mysterious and fascinating creatures, and they make great Halloween costumes. This year, why not dress up as your favorite bird with a DIY owl costume? Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make an incredible owl costume for Halloween.
Supplies You Will Need
- Hot glue gun
- White glue
- Large googly eyes
- Wooden dowel
- Needle and thread
Step 1: Create the Wings
Take your burlap and cut out two large wing-shaped pieces. Make sure they are big enough to give you a good wing-span. Use white glue to attach the feathers to the burlap until the wings are fully covered. Cut two lengths of elastic and sew them to each end of the wings. This will allow you to attach them to your arms when you wear the costume.
Step 2: Create the Tunic
Cut another piece of burlap, and cut a hole in the center for your head. Cut out two arm holes on either side. Take feathers and attach to the edges to create a feathered collar. Use the glue gun to secure the feathers. Put the tunic over your head and secure with a belt around your waist.
Step 3: Create the Mask
Cut out two large circles from the felt. Cut two smaller circles from the felt and attach them to the center of the larger circles. Glue the googly eyes to the smaller circles. Cut out a triangle from the felt and attach it upside down between the two eyes to create the beak. Attach feathers to the sides of the mask using the hot glue gun. Attach the mask to the headband using hot glue.
Step 4: Create the Feet
Take the wooden dowel and cut it into four equal lengths. Glue feathers to one end to create the toes. Attach elastic to the other end of the dowel. Wear black shoes and slip the elastic over your shoes to create the appearance of owls feet.
Creating a DIY owl costume is a fun and creative project that will make you the star of the Halloween party. The supplies are affordable, and the process is easy to follow. All it takes is some patience and creativity, and you’ll have a unique costume that’s sure to impress everyone.
Are you looking to create your own DIY owl costume for a special occasion? If you are feeling creative and are up for a challenge, then read on to find out how to put together the perfect owl costume.
First of all, you will want to make sure you have the right materials. You’ll need some light brown or beige fabric, craft felt in white and orange, safety eyes, velcro, glue, craft foam, and a hot glue gun or fabric tape.
Start by cutting out your owl body parts. You can use craft foam or fabric to create the wings, feet, and head of your owl. Using a pattern as a guide is helpful if you need it. Make sure to leave some extra fabric for hemming up the edges. For the wings, you might want to add feathers to give it a more realistic look.
For the eyes, you’ll need to use safety eyes. These can be purchased at most craft stores or online. Once you’ve attached the eyes, then glue the head to the body of the owl using either a hot glue gun or fabric tape.
Next, you’ll want to make the beak and claws. To do this, cut a triangle shape out of the craft felt. You can also cut small claw-like shapes out of foam or fabric and glue them to the owl’s feet.
Once your owl is complete, you will want to make sure it stays together by sewing on some velcro in strategic places. This way, you can close the costume securely so it won’t fall apart in the middle of your event.
Creating your own owl costume is a great way to unleash your creativity and get into the spirit of the occasion. Your friends and family will be amazed with your handiwork and your owl costume will be the talk of the night. So grab your materials and get to work, and you’ll have the perfect costume in no time.
