I have seen a few costumes for bearded dragons, and was mighty tempted to make something for our girls, Ellen and Portia. I didn’t want to make them uncomfortable. Just something light that could be stuck on for a minute with a bit of peanut butter.
No lizards were harmed in the making of this project.
In the same box as the Makit & Bakit crystals, there was a large ziploc of tiny hats. They seemed to be made out of pressed styrofoam. They are quite delicate, and most of them are misshapen. I two that look the best, and carefully remove the embellishments.
One gets a coat of black, and the other gets orange. My extensive (really, far too extensive) collection of washi tape yields cute hat bands.
In to the shiny box I go, affixing seasonally-colored rhinestones to the side of each hat.
The bat is a Halloween button I’ve trimmed the shank from.
The black hat gets a cute brad–shank also trimmed. No way it was going through the styro.
Ellen and Portia say HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
