meow: cat ears DIY

Good morning friends!  It’s Wednesday– that means Halloween is in just two days!  So if you were a procrastinator with your costume until now as I was, have no fear! I have a last minute, super easy and fast DIY for an incredibly simple costume!  After much contemplation, I decided to go as Catwoman (Anne Hathaway’s adaptation to be specific).  Essentially, I’m just wearing an extremely tight black outfit, black leather ankle boots, a cool mask I found on Etsy, and a pair of cat ears crafted by yours truly.  But enough of the chit-chat– you’re running behind, so let’s get down to it.

How-To

Alright, let’s get this party started.  To start off, put the headband on to get an idea of wear you want each ear to sit.  Then, take your wire and wrap it around the headband in the first place you want the ear to hit.  I wrapped mine about 3 times to ensure it was secure. Next, determine how large you’d like the ear to be and fold it downward.

Now, start stringing the beads onto the wire.  Make sure you stop with enough wire left to wrap around the headband on the other side.

Now, wrap the wire around on the other side, securing the beads.  Repeat on the other side and you’ve got yourself the easiest (and cutest) pair of cat ears around!

That simple.  I’ll be sure to post some pictures of my Halloween ensemble this weekend.  I’m not much of a Halloween person, but I am rather excited.  And with a DIY this easy, there is no excuse for you not to have a costume!  If Catwoman isn’t your style, go as a kitten who lost its mitten– or, just a regular cat.  Easy as pie.

Until next time–
