Loofah Halloween Costume

Halloween is only a couple months away. I figured now would be a great time to share with your an outfit and Elisabeth and I made a couple of years ago.We decided to try out a costume idea that we saw on Pinterest. Have you seen the super cute DIY loofah costumes? We found our example here at this blog. The instructions that were given were VERY easy to follow and our costumes turned out exactly like the picture. We were very happy and got so many compliments! We really liked that these required no sewing and no glue… just netting and elastic!

Here is an easy tutorial on how to make your own ears, whether it be foxes, cats, dogs, or any other animal.
