Halloween is fast approaching so we decided to whip up a few easy costume options for your little ones! Taking inspiration from our latest batch of fall outfits, we just added a few accessories and special handmade touches to complete each look. (Look out for the especially amazing felt masks from Opposite of Far we just started carrying online & in-stores!)
Costume Idea #1: Baby Gnome
- A red cap (like this)
- A striped shirt or sleeper (like this)
- Solid red pants (like this)
- Fur booties (like this)
The best thing about this little gnome costume is the adorable beard! To make your own, just take some thick white yarn (or pillow filler, or cotton balls) and superglue to a piece of paper cut out in to the shape of beard you want. Then just add holes on either side and use yarn to tie around the back or to the hat strings.
Costume Idea #2: Princess Kitty
- A fuzzy jacket (like this)
- Tutu (like this)
- Felt Kitty Mask (like this)
- Kitten Mittens (like these)
- Silver booties (like these)
For a few fun added touches, we took a cheap plastic crown from the dollar store and added felt cat ears to it. Plus we handmade a wand using a wooden dole which we poked through a styrofoam star spray painted gold and glittered. The tail was a super easy sew job made from grey felt and stuffed with pillow filler!
Idea #3: Cozy Superhero
- Sweatshirt (similar to this)
- Star print sweatpants (like this)
- Felt superhero mask (like this)
- Slippers (like this)
This costume is all about being comfy! Once you've got the mask and the outfit, the only accessory you need is a lightweight sheet (we used a scrap piece of silk) to use as a cape and you're good to go!
Idea #4: The Littest Reindeer
This costume is as easy as can be! To make the antler headband we just wrapped brown yarn around a thick plain headband and added a few sticks to the top, which we wrapped in yarn and glue to secure to the top.
We hope these easy costumes spark some inspiration of your own! Tell us what you're doing for Halloween, and don't forget to enter our Cutest Costumes Pic-of-the-Month contest on facebook!
