Braided cat ears! Easy Halloween DIY!

cat-ears-braid-37 It's the day before Halloween and I'm pretty sure most of you are still undecided on a costume but still want to take part. What costume is perfect for taking part but super cheap, fast and easy? That's it, a cat! I can't even count the times I've been unsure, overwhelmed with so many fantastic ideas and eventually just decided on this common feline costume. It's a perfect go to, everything you need is widely available, cheap and easy to get hold of. This reason alone is why Halloween Night , the streets are stalked by black cats both the animal kind and human kind. To set yourself apart from the rest of the cat pack, why don't you add a quirky little edge to your costume? Try these braid ears! All you will need : Step 1 - Prepare your hair by wearing it down in a centre part. On either side of your part, section off two equal size squares and using small elastics create a mini pig tail either side. Step 2 - Before you begin braiding your hair, take 2 of your pipe cleaners and twist them together. This will be the third section of your braid, the pipe cleaners will give the braid structure and an ability to be moulded into cat ears! Do this twice, one for each side.  cat-ears-braid-11-900x900 (1) Step 3 - Take one of the twisted pipe cleaners and twist it round the base of one of your pig tails. Braid this into your hair, once the braid is finished secure it with a small elastic band. Step 4 - Mould the braid into a cat ear shape, if there is any left over hair then wrap it back round the base and secure down with small hair grips. Repeat this step for the other side also. FINISHED! This look can be worn with the rest of your hair down or scraped back to keep the focus on these fantastic ears. Finish your look with a bold cat eye, cute little nose and whiskers. These ears are actually pretty versatile, why not try a cute fawn look? Use cat eye contact lenses to finish off this look!! JEiEB
