What do you need for this costume?
  • Farmer - Overalls, boots and a straw or cowboy hat. Easy!
  • Cow - You don't need a full-on cow costume. Use black fabric paint to put large spots on a white t-shirt. Blow up a couple of surgical gloves, tie the ends, then staple the wrist to the shirt to make udders.
  • Chicken - For this costume, you can really wear anything, as long as you have a feather boa that you can snip and staple to the cuffs and collar of your shirt. IF you've got time, stitch instead of staple.
  • Scarecrow - Staple raffia or straw to the inside of the cuffs and collar of a plaid shirt. Wear jeans and boots.
