DIY Cardboard Llama Costume | Mer Mag

I’ve wanted to make a costume version of our Toilet Paper Roll Llama Craft ever since I made the little guys. And this year, with our Playful Cardboard Costume Contest, I thought it the perfect time to finally do it. It was fun and easy and only took a couple of cardboard boxes, some ribbon and a bit of paint!

 

To make the costume head over to my shop for the template and instructions. Find it HERE.

Miss M was utterly delighted by her new pet llama! She kept running around the room saying “giddy-up!”. Cutest thing ever really. Now all I have left to do is make her a Tiny Traveler Tilda costume so she can explore Machu Picchu with her alpaca friend.

In the mean time we’re loving this little toddler pixie bonnet knitted just for Miss M by Sweet K.M. Poncho and pant from Old Navy and moccs from Freshly Picked.
