Stores are now setting out the Halloween costumes and decorations. Crafters are now asking their children for their final decision on what to be for Halloween so they can make their costumes.
Do you need ideas? Perhaps these will help. (unless it is posted on my site, I have no connection at all with the pattern, designer or website – you may need to sign up for a free membership in order to access some content)
Thomas the Tank Engine (or any of his friends): My grandson was a big Thomas fan a few years ago. Here is a link to a step-by-step description of how we created his costume Henry. It later passed on my granddaughter who loved it just as much as he did.
Pirate: Red Heart Yarn has crochet patterns for a pirate hat, eye patch and belt.
Pumpkin: Berroco Yarn has a pumpking pattern in sizes 2,4 and 6. It is knitted and considered an intermediate level project.
Fairy: What little girl doesn’t want to be a fairy, dancing with Tinkerbell? This crochet pattern will have her dressed up and ready to go in no time. And wouldn’t this petal mask be a great way to finish off the look. Perhaps you could add this headband and wings .
Cat: Lion Brand Yarns is offering this intermediate knitting pattern to make a cat headband and wrist warmers. Add a black leotard and you have a precious little kitty.
Airplane: Any kid can dress up as a Pilot. Yours can be a pilot in his own plane! With a box and paint, your child will be flying high this halloween.
Pooh Bear: You may have everything you need around the house to make this costume.
Robot: With some foil, paint and a cardboard box, your little one could be a robot.
Harry Potter: A trip to the thrift store could be all you need to complete a Harry Potter costume (from his younger years)
That’s a start to the Halloween costume ideas. Leave a comment explaining what you crafted up.
