With homework already being doled out, we bet your kids are daydreaming about what they’ll be for Halloween. Some may have had the perfect costume idea concocted months ago, while others are still weighing their options. Robot? Zoo Animal? Rock Star? Whatever they may choose, we yarncrafters know that the sky’s the limit when it comes to DIY costumes!
We also know that Halloween, always at the end of October, teetering into cooler November, can be a chilly holiday depending on where you live. Why not do double duty and make your child’s Halloween costume something they can wear after the holiday? Have fun creating more elaborate hats that kids can dress up for trick-or-treating, then continue to wear as winter comes along.
Below, find a few of our favorite animal-themed hats to get the creative juices flowing. What kind of costume will you help design?
