(Easy and Cute) Kids Bird Costume for Halloween

A kids bird costume that even the most unexperienced crafter can make. Truly! It’s so easy.

Honestly, I wasn’t sure I’d be making any DIY Halloween costumes this year because we don’t have any Halloween plans, for obvious reasons. But one day last week, I realized I had a couple hours free and some scrap fabric from old projects.

So, after asking Hayes what he wanted to be for Halloween, I figured I’d do a homemade costume this year for him. Especially since last year, I ran out of time to make one. The year before I made three baby costumes though, so it kinda balanced out. 

If you’re looking at this thinking you don’t have time to make this costume, I hear you! And maybe you don’t….BUT maybe you do! It took less than two hours to make and you could get that time down even further if you go the no sew route. Which I’ll share in the tutorial.

ALSO, maybe some of you are like, I can make one WAY better than that. And you probably can! Haha. But I thought this one turned out pretty cute.

Anyway, click through to see how I made this DIY bird costume for my toddler.

Carving pumpkins can be a mess…and maybe even a little dangerous if you’ve never used a carving hand saw. Which is why every Halloween, I search for new no carve pumpkin ideas to try instead of picking up a carving tool. Who’s with me?

Every pumpkin becomes a tiny canvas when you opt for pumpkin designs that don’t involve a knife. Right?! So, it’s no surprise that I gravitate towards Halloween pumpkin ideas that use paint, stencils, stickers, fabric, tissue paper…and well, anything else you can think of (as long as it’s not carved). And because I’m obsessed with no carve pumpkin ideas, I rounded up a whole bunch of my favorites to share: 38 of the most modern, cool looking DIY pumpkins I could find!

Want to take a peek and try some of these pumpkin decorating ideas with me this Halloween?

Our back room lounge is almost complete and I wanted to give you a huge sneak peek today. As in, I’m showing you *almost* the entire space – just holding back a few things until next week. 

Before I share the final, final reveal, I wanted to talk to you about all the Article furniture we have in this space because it totally makes the entire room, imo. And because I’ve had several pieces of Article furniture for years and years, that I continually get asked about, I thought you might have some questions about my newest pieces too.

How to Make a (Modern) Fall Wreath

A fall wreath that actually looks modern and cool? I’m in!

Image of an asymmetrical fall wreath made of pampas grass, wheat, and palm leaves.

I’ve shared plenty of DIY wreaths over the years, but usually they’re winter and holiday related. Last year, though, I made my first DIY fall wreath and now I’m in love. Especially because it means I get to play around with dried grasses and florals.

I foraged some pampas grass, broke out my beloved collection of dried palm leaves and tracked down some really pretty dried mushrooms (!!!).

All to make these simple, modern fall wreaths that are as far from grandma’s pinecone door wreath as I could get. Not trying to hate on grandma though. She can keep those pinecone wreaths up as long as she likes.
