The costume works great for small children because of the short stature of gnomes. At the same time Halloween allows you to be anything you want including a mythical bearded garden character. For this project the directions will be for a child but are easily altered for an adult. Just make sure to add additional fabric for the adult costume. Materials Needed:
Surprisingly, my son has yet to waver from his desire to be an astronaut for Halloween this year, but here’s something I made him last year in an attempt to cover his ever-changing alter-egos: a reversible, 4-in-1 cape. With two colors to choose from plus button-on embellishments and a button-on hood, he can quickly transform himself from knight to dragon to super hero to king. I also made a red and pink superhero/princess/butterfly/Little Red Riding hood cape for my niece. For the butterfly, I added loops of ribbon at the front corners of the cape that she can slip over her wrists, and a large loop of ribbon with velcro at either end to gather up the middle of the back of the cape and turn it into wings.

Even though we had another GORGEOUS 70+ degree day today in mid-November, I have forced myself to think about presents. Christmas presents. Seeing as how I don't like to spend money, and I don't enjoy shopping, and I want entirely LESS stuff than I already have, I'm thinking this will be a *mostly-handmade Christmas. (*"mostly" because my dear Man can't help buying some things that he the kids would enjoy playing with) My Mom and Mimi gave me tons of fabric and supplies, so it's really only a matter of the time I have to complete things. Starting in mid-November probably wasn't too bright.
Last year, we found the funniest costume and we really wanted it for Emmett (who has earned the nickname “Angry Elf”). But we couldn’t find it in Emmett’s size. This year, Target is carrying the costume – for $20. Basically these are brown and plaid, super-thin pajamas with a felt hat, fake beard and felt booties. TWENTY dollars!?!? So, I tried my hand at making it myself.
Here's "hooo" to turn a simple hoodie into an owl Halloween costume. For this project, you'll need a pink hoodie (purchased at H&M), pink and cream fleece (felt will work too), white glue , package of black and orange foam masks (purchased at Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts), one sheet of regular copier paper, one sheet of white cardstock, and a rosette. 1.
Yes, I’ve only posted about my dragon wings about 10 times, and here it goes again. Only this time I’m sharing how I made them. OK, here is goes, my first ever tutorial… Materials: Fleece 2 metal hangers
Oct 21 by Ellen Luckett Baker Simple is better, so if you’re looking for a handmade idea for Halloween, try converting a t-shirt into a cute bat costume in a few quick steps. Much like my owl costume from last year, this project can be made quickly, is comfortable for kids to wear and it’s fun!

And attach velcro: Then turn it back over to the front and cut out some sort of shape to the shirt, creating some sleeves…..but still leaving a good amount to the width, so that you’ll have some shirt to cinch up in the belt at the end. Turn it inside out, sew up the sides along the new curves, and then turn it right side out again. Now, make diagonal cuts all along the bottom and sleeves. That’s it. Nice and easy.
A s our “magical world” project continues this year, we are still super focused on the fairy forest part of that imaginary adventure. The tiny person is so excited about creating the bits and pieces that line the path to her castle and lead the way along the path into the fairy forest, that we found ourselves at a loss for where to put all of our cool creations when the magical world is packed away. Enter Fairy Bowls.
