Another inexpensive and easy way to create a costume for your little one is to modify a basic hoodie. My love for this method is not new - I first discovered it via this Etsy shop a few years ago. It's cheap, easy, and the best part is it's WARM for those of you who live in a place where October 31st = cold.
There are like a billion Etsy shops where you can buy these (just search "hoodie costume"), but they're pretty easy to make on your own with a little felt/fabric and a hot glue gun. Here are some fun examples and tutorials to spark your imagination:
- care bear
- lion (scroll down a bit)
- little red riding hood and the big bad wolf
- book worm
- fox (this one's made using a hoodie + a thrifted coat - a great idea if you want to keep your little one extra warm.
