Dolls Halloween Costume

Dolls Halloween Costume

Posted 2013-10-18 by Jane Streetfollow


If your child likes making outfits and dressing up dolls, this doll's Halloween witch costume will be a hit. Most of the steps are too complex for younger children. However it's quick to make so it can be constructed with a child helping - my daughter enjoyed giving 'creative direction' as well as sticking on the stars.

Time: 20 mins
Age: Any age
Level: Medium

Materials
  • Thick black paper
  • Sticky stars
  • Black rubbish bag
  • One thin stick and some fine twigs
  • Elastic band
  • Scissors
  • Sticky tape

  • Method

    To make the broom:
  • Gather a thin stick and some fine twigs.

  • Jacaranda twigs


  • Trim the twigs to the same length (approx 2 inches long) with scissors.



  • Arrange the twigs around the bottom of the thin stick and fix with an elastic band.



  • To make the witch hat:
  • Cut a circle with a smaller circle cut out in the middle to make the hat brim. The inner circle should just fit onto the doll's head.
  • Cut a large circle with a radius a centimetre or two bigger than you want the height of the finished hat to be.



  • Cut a wedge out of the circle.



  • Curl the remainder of the circle into a cone shape and fix with sticky tape.



  • Push the cone into the hat brim disc.
  • Cut the part of the cone underneath the brim into fringed segments and stick these up to the underside of the brim.

  • Ready to fix with some sticky tape


  • Decorate the hat with sticky stars.



  • To make the witch cape:
  • Cut a cape shape with long ties out of the black rubbish bag (see photo).
  • Strengthen the area where the ties meet the main cape with a little sticky tape if required.
  • Decorate front and back of the cape with sticky stars.



  • Your doll is now ready to dress up. Happy Halloween!
