DIY Halloween Costume

My 5-year old boy decided to be a magician for Halloween this year, so I was searching for some DIY ideas online.  I found a tutorial from A Craft a Day to make the cape, which is awesome!  Since I am a sewing novice, I had to seek help from my mother-in-law though. 🙂  She did the collar a bit different from the instruction, and it looks out very well.


Instead of sewing the hat, I crocheted one using the Halloween Top Hat pattern I found from Red Heart.


For the trick-or-treat bag, he’s using the crochet pumpkin bag for the first time that I made right after last year’s Halloween.


Then my 8-year girl last minute decided she doesn’t want to be Princess Anna (from Frozen) any more.  Instead, she would like to be a witch.  Fine, her supermom then had to search all over again for  witch costume ideas.  Then I found one on Pinterest – DIY No Sew Ribbon Tie Tutu.  Perfect!  Then I went to Michael’s to get the 4 different colors of Tulle to make the Tutu.


As for the hat, I found a post called How to crochet a witch hat for Halloween and used the same yarn that I used for the boy’s magician hat.


Last but not least, we got her a broom from the dollar store, and she’s using the same zombie bag I made for her a few years ago.  Hwww, mission accomplished!


And here’s their final look 🙂
