We absolutely love Fall but fall in So Cal is very different. The heat wave is still around and we have the AC on almost all day. I can not express much how I’m anxiously waiting for the cooler weather so we can wear these awesome fall/winter pieces.

Today, we have an easy DIY Lumberjack Costume with the help of Bobo Choses’ Treehouse Romper. Ever since I saw this Bobo Choses Treehouse Romper, I knew the colors and the print would be perfect for a little lumberjack costume. We simply needed a beanie, beard and an ax. Although, he was not interested in the ax at all, and was in major tantrum mode, we were able to capture the amazing pieces of Bobo Choses from Poppy’s closet, beautifully.
To create your own Lumberjack Beanie you will need the following:
- 1/4 Yard of Black Fur
- Black Beanie
- Needle & Thread
Cut a long strip 3-4 inches of fur. Measure your little one’s neck area to adjust the size of the fur.
Hand sew the first fur end to the inside of the beanie. Try on the beanie on your kiddo, and make a mark to where the “fur/beard” will begin. Then sew on that spot.
To be able to remove the beanie with ease.. I decided to add a button. You can either make a slit on the beanie to be able to insert the button or make and sew a “pocket with a slit” inside the beanie.
Since the fur in the pictured above is shaped in a rectangle, I suggest for you to shape the fur, into a triangle to form the beard shape once you have sow it on the beanie.
