Priceless Peacock!!

Peacock Princess!

I have been seeing all of this Peacock stuff all over lately and decided that it would be the perfect Halloween costume for Avery!  I love all the girly stuff so I wanted her to be a "Princess Peacock".
My mom came over and helped me and it was so easy and inexpensive!!!

We made the tutu for under $5!!
Brown Tulle  $0.77 a yard
Navy Tulle  $0.77 a yard
Aqua Tulle  $0.77 a yard
Green Tulle $0.77  a yard
The elastic was $1.29

All you do is cut the elastic to the size you want for the waistband, cut the tulle (we cut it in strips that were 25" long and 4" wide) and tie the tulle on the elastic in 1 knot in the middle of the 25" so that its basically 2 pieces hanging off the elastic at 12.5" each.
Simple as that!  

Then we hot glued Christmas glitter Peacock picks we found at Hobby Lobby (right side of photo).  They are in the Christmas Tree aisle with all of the garland and picks.  They were $2.49 and 40% off.  They also sell some at Walmart for $1.47 (left side of photo)...we didn't end up using those, but they were also cute.

Next, we worked on the top.  We had the brown top already.  You could use any onsie, or top you wanted.
We glued a Christmas ornament that they sell at Hobby Lobby to the middle.  It came just like that and was like $4 with 40% off.

Lastly, we bought a peacock feather clip that was over by the ribbon section at Hobby Lobby.  It was $6.99 but I used a 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon which you can find here!

Tutu (with glitter peacock feathers): $8.85
Top: $2.40 (price for ornament...had top already)
Headband: $4.19 (price for peacock feather clip, we had bow and band already)
Seeing your baby girl as an adorable Peacock.... Priceless
(ok actually $15.44)

Bye Bye...thanks for reading about my costume!
