Happy Halloween guys! I’ve been waiting for this day all year. Today, I’m sharing our mother daughter Halloween costumes and a quick feather headband DIY.
This year’s Halloween costume choice came out of the blue. When I asked Catherine what she wanted to be for Halloween, she said “Pocahontas.” I have never seen Disney’s version of Pocahontas and I didn’t think that Catherine had either. Nonetheless, there wasn’t even the slightest bit of hesitation in her decision. Not like last year. Which was a disaster. Seriously, last Halloween was a parent’s worst nightmare.

I never planned to have Mother Daughter Halloween Costumes. But, as it happens, we were driving through our neighborhood one day last week and stopped to say “hello” to a family that was taking a walk. The Mom asked Catherine what she was going to be for Halloween and once she found out, she said “Oh, I was Pocahontas one year too.” I swear I felt my ears perk.
I asked the Mom if it was the “saucy” version of the costume. She said no (I could see the husband’s disappointment on his face). Then I asked her if I could borrow the costume and here we are. They are both totally cute, but of course I can’t leave well enough alone. No Native American princess costume is complete without a feather headband.
To make the headbands, I just cut strips of brown felt and hot glued feathers to one strip and glued another strip on top (photos below). Then, I punch a hole in the felt to thread a ribbon around the back to secure it to our head. Easy as can be. Wishing you a very happy and safe Halloween!
