Every Queen needs a crown! Wow people with your bat guards hovering over you all evening. Add glow in the dark eyes for nighttime effect. 

My goal each  Halloween is to only spend $20-30 for 3 costumes and yard decorations. So far I have accomplished this for the past two years!  I just don't see the point in spending $50-200 for everything when I can pull it off for way cheaper. Since I have a teenager and a toddler ,mom, of course, has to dress up too (great excuse). I'm excited to share all of my crafting ideas to help everyone accomplish the same for pennies compared to the BORING, EVERYONE HAS IT store bought stuff.

Super cheap and easy!

Craft time - 2-3 hours

Supplies needed: 

Headband 1" wide or more

Drill with 1/16" bit - for those without power tools a small wood screw with a sharp point will work 

18-22 gauge wire - make sure your wire is stiff

White glue

Card stock in color of your choosing

Hot glue gun

Thick cardboard roll - or a round log - or a terra cotta pot (if your careful) - or whatever you find that you can brace the headband on and drill

Exact o Knife

Needle nose pliers

I'm matching mine up with the http://www.instructables.com/id/CHEAP-Masquerade-Mask/



♥♥♥ Thank you for the hearts and to my teenage son for wearing my stuff knowing it's going to get posted ♥♥♥
