Little Devil Halloween Costume

Raphaël Büchler

Your little devil will be ready for trick-or-treating in no time with this easy, no-sew Halloween costume.

You'll need:

  • Red sweatshirt
  • Fabric glue
  • 1/2 yard red ribbon
  • Large safety pin
  • Red marabou boa
  • 1 yard red felt
  • Straightened metal hanger
  • Red rubber glove
  • Cotton balls
  • Red headband
  • Red glitter
  • Red paint
  • Wooden dowel

Body

Start with the sweatshirt and cut off the sleeves 3 inches from neck; glue raw edges under. Cut a 4-inch slit down the back, starting at the center of the neck. Attach ribbon to a safety pin and thread it through neck casing (you'll use the ends to tie a bow). Glue marabou to the neck and trim excess.

Tail

Cut two triangles from felt, about 3 inches high and 3 inches wide at the base. Then cut a strip of felt about 4 inches wide to desired length. Fold strip in half lengthwise and glue edges; let dry, then turn inside out. Push straightened metal hanger through the tail and glue the triangles together over the tip. Glue the other end to the back of the sweatshirt. Wrap a small piece of marabou around base.

Horns

Cut two fingers off rubber glove and stuff with cotton balls. Coat with glue and cover with red glitter. Glue to headband. Pitchfork: Cut two pieces of red felt into a pitchfork shape (get a template here). Glue edges together, leaving a small opening at the bottom center; once dry, stuff with cotton balls and dust with red glitter. Paint a wooden dowel red. Once dry, place fork on the stick and glue together.
