Parrot Costume

Follow these simple directions to create a Parrot costume.

Parrot Costume

Time: 1-2 hours

Effort: Easy - no sewing required

Materials:

  • Pillowcase
  • 4-5 large bags of colored feathers
  • Glue gun
  • Glue sticks
  • Plastic bird beak
  • Yellow tights
  • Black high tops (optional)

Instructions: Find the center of the pillowcase on the end opposite the open end. Cut a hole here for your child's head to go through. Cut holes in the sides for his arms. Hot glue 3-4 rows of red feathers, followed by 3-4 rows of yellow feathers, 3-4 rows of blue feathers, and 3-4 rows of green feathers, until you reach the bottom of the pillowcase. Turn the case over and glue corresponding feathers to the back of the case. Pull on the case with yellow leggings and black high-top tennis shoes. Add a bird's beak and you're done! Very cute and inexpensive.

Tips: You have to be careful about sitting in this costume. A little molting does occur! You can tease your child's hair, then stick in some feathers for a plume effect. A little spray holds the feathers in place in the hair.
