If you’re looking for a quick and easy costume you can make for kids this Halloween, we’ve got you covered! Sometimes we just don’t have the time to sew a whole costume, and there’s nothing wrong with making things a little (or a lot) simpler on yourself. That’s why we’re going to show you how to make these really cute monster costume accessories that you could pair with pretty much any outfit.
Below we have a video tutorial for the monster headband and a photo tutorial for the wrist and ankle accessories.
Craft a scary cute costume
If you’re a crafter, then you most likely have a lot of these supplies on hand already. So not only will these monster costume accessories not take a ton of time to make, but it’s also more affordable than buying a costume from the store. Another fun thing about this costume is that you can make it any color combination you like.
We can’t wait to see your version of this costume! Be sure to share your little monsters with us by posting photos to our private Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tip: If you are worried about the crepe paper getting ruined because of wet weather, you could substitute the crepe fringe for felt. The template will work for either material.
