Easy Cow Costume Accessory

On our way to Chick-fil-A for breakfast!

Cow Appreciation Day is finally here!  The kids and I met some friends for breakfast and had a "moo"velous time.  When David gets home we plan to head out again for dinner - we love Chick-fil-A!  In case you don't have an amazing costume yet it's not too late to pull something together.  Gather your black and white gear and create something amazing.  I love to use black and white felt because I always have some on hand and it is easy to use.

Here is a step-by-step on how to make a cow sign for your cow costume.  All you need is one piece of white felt, black and red sharpies, twine or something similar, a hole punch, and an example of the sign you want to create (we used a plush cow).

1.  Place the felt on a hard surface and use the black sharpie to write Eat Mor Chikin as the cows would.

 Make the letters

 More letters

2.  Keeping the felt on a hard surface, use the red sharpie to write Chick-fil-A at the bottom of the sign.

All the words

3.  Hole punch two holes at the top of the sign and attach the sign.  Finished!

 Make the holes

4.  Repeat as necessary.

 Finished sign

I reuse the signs and make new ones as needed every year and they are always a hit.

B this morning with her sign!
