Super Easy DIY Cardboard Ears


I love the idea of putting babies in snuggly pajamas for tricks-and-treats and then topping them off with a simple headband and a dab of face paint. Easy, comfy and uber adorable. And what better pj’s to cuddle up in then these adorable panda pj’s from Le Marchand d’Etoiles, a new French line that I’m drooling over. (The sleepy town photos with kiddos snoozing while standing up are just too adorable for words). And how about that bow tie, I mean really…


As for the cardboard ears headband, well I doubt you need a tutorial, but I will give you a quick DIY run down.

Basically just cut out a couple of ear shapes out of cardboard, have your little one go to town with painting them and then hot glue them onto a headband and boom, done. That’s it! seriously a no brainer craft that has major cuteness factor when placed upon a bitty baby head. (Oh and crazy easy/good if you can just nab everything from stuff you already have lying around the house).


And now I best be off to snuggling with my little bear in the softest, cuddliest pj’s ever…because having her as a one year old for Halloween will only happen…well once…
