As I strolled the aisles of my local Target a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but wander through the Halloween section. I had intended to simply wear my devil horns again this year until I saw an inexpensive blond wig ($4.99). I have never been a blond before. Eager to see if I'd indeed have more fun, I purchased the wig not knowing what I'd be. Then, it came to me...if I slap a piece of meat on my head, I could be Lady Gaga.
Since I wasn't about to wear a real piece of meat on my head, I decided to make a faux meat fascinator. This cost me all of 90 cents for the three pieces of felt and was extremely easy to make. If you are naturally blond and on a budget, you can't get an easier costume than this!
What you need:
3 pieces of felt (2 white, 1 red)
pattern (printable pdf here)
1. Place your printed pattern onto a piece of white felt, pin, and cut on the outermost line #1.
2. Remove pins and place the pattern onto the red piece of felt, pin, and cut on line #2.
3. Remove pins and place the pattern onto the last piece of white felt, pin, and cut on line #3, the t-bone.l
Now the fun will be in seeing who recognizes the costume right away and who stares at me while scratching their heads. Are you dressing up for Halloween this weekend?
