A no-sew costume any parent can make
Piece together this fun Frankenstein costume with a few craft store items for an easy, no-sew Halloween get-up.
- 1 yard green felt
- Fabric glue
- Silver-painted spools
- A scrap red felt
- Faux fur
- Black sweatpants
- Gray T-shirt
- Dark sports jacket
Cut a piece of green felt long enough to wrap around your child's head and 12 to 16 inches wide. Fold in half lengthwise so the hat is 6 to 8 inches tall; glue sides together to form a cylinder. Cut two more pieces of green felt about 6 inches wide and 8 inches long to create the neckpiece. Glue one strip to each side of the hat on the inside; glue silver spools in the middle of each piece for neck bolts (you'll tuck the ends inside his shirt or jacket). Cut a "scar" out of red felt, and glue to the hat. Place faux fur across the top and glue in place around edges. Trim to desired style.
Dress child in sweatpants, and cut jagged edges at the bottom. Top with T-shirt and jacket.
