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 🙂
