DIY Halloween Costume – baby?

by DIY wedding planner on August 10, 2012

Ok I know Halloween is still a couple months away, but with school starting and a wedding, I know it will sneak up on me pretty quick..

I am not worried about my oldest son.. He is 7 he can figure out what he wants to be easliy… My youngest is 8 mth (10 mths at halloween).. And of course mommy gets to pick..

Anyone have any cute ideas?

I’ve seen a pea in the pod. If you’re good at sewing you can buy the fabric ( i’d say two colors one for the pea and the other for the pod, baby is the pea), and sew it up so it looks like a pea in the pod!!!

If you dressed up as a princess you could dress the baby up as a mouse. Or something old timey like a court jester or a little knight.

A tiger:

you’ll need: orange sweat suit, a baseball cap, some black fabric paint, a paintbrush, black yarn, two googly eyes and a permanent marker. Once you’ve gathered all of your supplies, just paint black stripes all over the sweat suit, and set it aside to dry. Then to complete the look, add black stripes to an orange baseball cap, and glue on a few pieces of black thread or yarn for whiskers. Add two googly eyes and a hand drawn mouth


you’ll need: a white sweat suit, a few packages of cotton balls and some fabric glue. To complete this project just glue cotton balls all over the top and bottom of a sweat suit


you’ll need:

a pair of green, sleeper pajamas; and glue triangles of green felt all along the backside. (Fabric glue will work perfectly for this step.) Then, complete the look by gluing more felt scales to a green ski hat or baseball cap.

Best for last:

Super baby!!

Purchase a leotard or onesie in your chosen color, and then just iron the first letter of your child’s name onto the front of the top. (Check your local craft or fabric store for a wide selection of iron-on letters and decals. You may also be able to find letters with adhesive backing if you’d like to forgo the ironing.) Then, dress your child up in tights and the leotard, and finish by securing a cape to the back of the costume with safety pins.

You could dress the lil guy as a jester.
