Make Room for Ducky

To make this easy number, all you need is a yellow sweatshirt and sweatpants, a yellow baseball cap, orange rain boots, yellow feather boa and a ping pong ball.

How to instructions:

  1. First, snip the feathers from the boa, then glue them to the sleeves and chest area of the shirt.

  2. Cut the pingpong ball in half , color it with a black sharpie pen and glue each half to the front of the baseball cap to resemble eyes.
  3. Glue a few of the feathers to the baseball cap for maximum ducky effect. Your little Daisy or Donald is ready to make a splash.

Watch out for the Shark

A cute little shark is the perfect addition to any Halloween party. This one requires a grey hooded sweatshirt and pants; white, grey and black felt; a hot glue gun, scissors, and a piece of cardboard.

How to instructions:

  1. Cut and glue the white felt to the front of the grey hoodie to resemble the shark body. Using a remaining white felt, cut a zigzag pattern for the teeth. Using remaining white felt, cut a zigzag pattern for the teeth. Attach with glue around the inside edge of the hood.
  2. Cut circles out of black felt and glue to hood to make the eyes.

  3. To make the shark's fin, cut a piece of cardboard into fin shape.
  4. Cover the cardboard with grey felt and attach with glue to the back of the grey hoodie. Your kid will be adorable, but don't be surprised if everyone "swims" away in fear!

Queen of the Sea

This approach to making a mermaid's costume is simple and straightforward. Long skirt, crepe paper streamers, glue gun, colored cupcake liners, headband, and plastic starfish are what you need to make this happen.

How to Instructions:

  1. To make mermaid scales, fold cupcake liners in half, and glue to skirt, layering the liners lengthwise with alternating colors. Continue until skirt is completely covered.

  2. Every mermaid needs a tiara! Fold cupcake liners in half and glue them to the headband. They should look like seashells. Hot glue starfish to the liners for extra fishy bling.
  3. Finish by gluing lengths of crepe paper streamers in alternating colors at points around the skirt waist to resemble seaweed. Even Hans Christian Andersen would be proud of your little magical creation.

No One Can Resist a Berry!

It's easy to melt hearts w hen your little one makes an entrance as a sweet straw berry. This one requires a bright red, long-sleeve shirt and pants, a green beanie hat, green felt, green pipe cleaners and dark yellow craft paint.

How to Instructions:

  1. Use the paper and pencil to create teardrop shapes as template for the strawberry seeds.

  2. Paint seeds all over the shirt and pants using the template.

  3. Create the leaf pattern on green felt and cut out about 12 leaves.
  4. Glue the green pipe cleaners to the green felt to create leaf vein patterns.
  5. Glue the leaves to the collar of the red shirt.

  6. Use the leftover leaves for the cap. Glue in a cluster at the tip of the beanie hat. Your little strawberry is now ready to leave the patch.
