Oh did I have more fun making this costume!
I started with my straw cowboy hat and covered the conchoes with some fabric scraps.
I wore a red flannel shirt and my husband's overalls with some more fabric scraps sewed on.
(Flannel and oversized overalls - talk about a comfy costume!)
I put my hair in pigtails.
And I stuffed raffia in all the pockets and taped raffia under the hat and around the cuffs.
A little face paint in red and brown was the finishing touch.
($1 per tube at Wal-mart - the only cost for this costume!)
I slipped on my cowboy boots and was ready to go!
I hope this gives you an idea for a fun and frugal costume! :-)
