I try to make my son’s Halloween costume every year (mainly so he has something unique) and this year we decided to make him an American Bald Eagle sitting in a nest. Using a gray hooded sweatshirt, we began sticking feathers to the sweatshirt using spray adhesive. Once feathers were covering the entire sweatshirt, I used craft foam to shape a beak, glued on some eyeballs, and stepped back to enjoy the finished product.

My son loved his Homemade American Bald Eagle Costume and was so proud to be the only Bald Eagle around on Halloween.
