Tutorial: Pink Owl Costume

Here's "hooo" to turn a simple hoodie into an owl Halloween costume. For this project, you'll need a pink hoodie (purchased at H&M), pink and cream fleece (felt will work too), white glue, package of black and orange foam masks (purchased at Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts), one sheet of regular copier paper, one sheet of white cardstock, and a rosette.

2. Print out Owl Template 1 on regular copier paper and cut out the pieces. Cut a set of wings, approximately sixty individual feathers, and the mask out of the pink fleece. Then cut about twenty individual feathers out of the cream fleece.

3. Starting at the bottom of the hoodie, sew (or glue if the hoodie won't be worn after Halloween) a row of pink feathers. Create overlapping layers of feathers as you work your way up the hoodie.

  17. what size was this originally made for?
    I have an almost 8 year old, 6 years, 4 years and a 2 year old. Do I need to modify it for my oldest?? Thanks and I LOVE your site.

  18. I appreciate the nice comment **blush**. I made this costume for my 6 year old daughter. You will probably have to lengthen the wings and cut out more individual feathers for your oldest, but I think the mask should still fit without any adjustments.

  23. This is adorable... great idea! I love the fact that it's an embellished hoodie. So much easier than making a costume entirely from scratch. Love the addition of the rosette, too. Nice work!

  28. I can't tell you how much I love this costume. This is so much cuter (and cheaper) than the Pottery Barn version. Thank you SO much. I'm going to try to create it for my youngest. It's perfect for her. Thanks again.

  34. Just make this costume for my daughter, with a few changes due to rules on costumes at our church functions (no masks). Thank you for posting this tutorial! If you would like to see the one I made for my daughter it's posted on my blog: projectdaydreaming.blogspot.com

  35. I would love for you to put her picture on your blog! I am planning on using face paint for Halloween, the beak and the eyes really help make it look like an owl and not just any bird, so I'm hoping the face paint can make up for the lack of a mask.

  36. Christine es fabuloso haber encontrado tu blog. Mis hijas ya me han pedido que les haga su popio disfraz de buho. Un abrazo muy fuerte desde España, y desde mi humilde blog: www.elbauldeadnaloy.blogsot.com

  40. I just finished the owl get-up! Oh my! I am so tired of cutting those feathers...but it was worth it! My daughter loves it! Thanks so much for the tutorial. Also, I just wanted to mention that I used a fleece robe and a fleece shirt that I picked up at a thrift store for my material. So fun and thrify! Thanks!!

  41. I don't know where or how I found your blog, but this post really wowed me! When I saw your owl costume, I knew I had to make it for my 2 girls. The awesome thing is that I had a ton of pink and cream fleece left over from another project. Two costumes cost me $18!!! I've posted a link from my blog so that I can give you credit for this awesome tutorial!
    Thanks for making my 2 little owls happy!
