DIY Cat Ears

Are your kiddos ready for Halloween? With four kids to outfit, we like simple costumes. I also like pairing clothing with easy accessories for an inexpensive costume. By combining a black shirt and leggings with these DIY Cat Ears, you’ll have a quick costume that can actually be comfortable to wear on Halloween.
