Step 1: Place a sheet of card stock inside the onesie so the maker would not bleed through. Start coloring irregular spots on the onesie. It helps is you stretch out the area you are coloring. Ali- Cow Costume-3

Step 2: Visit to get some free cow costume print outs. I got ears, a bow and the sign. Since they were for Ali I scaled them down in the printer options to about 70%. Ali- Cow Costume-4

Step 3: Cut out your pieces, glue the ears to your elastic or headband (be sure to cut a piece of elastic long enough to fit your child’s head). Punch holes in the signs and attach them with 2 pieces of sting.

Other quick Cow Costume Ideas:

My shirt was painted, I made it last year and just used it again. The cow hat we picked up a few years ago.

We have also cut out spots from black paper and tapped them to us in the past.

This year Chris cut wholes in a white t-shirt and wore a black shirt under it.
