Okay, so this isn’t a super-cheap Halloween costume idea, but many of the components are things you can find at the dollar store, and the finished look is worth every penny.  Plus, this little girl is just too adorable not to share!  Her mom is Jennae from Green Your Decor, who searched through hundreds of ideas before settling on a costume that both a) her daughter liked, and b) she thought she would be able to pull off.  Inspiration struck when she saw a photo of a peacock, and the rest is crafty history!  [how to make a peacock costume]
