Cutest Homemade Peacock Costume for a Toddler
My proud peacock!! I wanted to do something creative for my 19 month old daughter’s first night out trick or treating!! I thought a peacock costume would be really cute!!
First I took a black onsie and glued blue and teal feathers on the front with fabric glue. I bought a child size skirt at the local craft store and had to make it fit her little waist. (Made the waist smaller and cute tutu to be shorter) I did pink leggings and pink boots because a peacocks legs are flesh tone. Her hair piece was a feather with felt on the back and I hot glued 2 hair clips to it. (it was the only part of her costume she didn’t like). She also had a matching trick or treat bag covered in peacock feathers.
Now the hard part. For her peacock feathers. I layed them out on a small piece of cardboard the way I wanted them to fan out. I had to cut the ends because when you buy the feathers they are really long. I hot glued them to the board and another piece of cardboard on top. I found a fleece neck warmer at the store, I used it as a belt and glued the card inside the neck warmer, along with some rolled up bubble wrap to push the feathers out a bit. It worked great for her little waist.
Hope you enjoy!
