I made a template and then cut the felt. I wanted the wings to be easy and fun. I think we got it right.
So I made a second pair of wings.
Then I used some white fleece to make a eagle head hood. Living in Minnesota, Halloween evening can get down right chilly. These hoods were perfect for keeping everyone warm while trick or treating.
I still had a little felt left over from the 1/2 yard of felt, which was just enough for some tail feathers and eagle masks.
These two were so excited for the new dress up costumes they easily decided to be eagles for Halloween. Actually one was an eagle, the other decided his costume was a peregrine falcon.
Too bad the Griffin didn't make an appearance for the holiday, but I'm hopeful I will see it in the future now that we have these wings and accessories in our dress up box.
