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
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
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
