flamingo costume

We’re scouring all our friends’ blogs this week to find the best Halloween costumes made from dollar store stuff. This Flamingo costume by Charlie at Attempting Aloha is one of the cutest costumes I’ve seen this year, dollar store or not. She got everything she needed for the hat at Dollar Tree, and provides a template and great instructions for the flamingo hat over hat her blog.  [how to make a flamingo costume]
