DIY Pumpkin Halloween Costume: Step-by-Step Guide
Halloween is around the corner and if you’re still looking for a costume idea, why not dress up as a pumpkin? A pumpkin costume is a classic Halloween staple and you can easily replicate this look with a few basic supplies and some DIY skills. In this article, we’ll guide you through the steps to create your own pumpkin Halloween costume.
What You’ll Need
- Orange T-shirt
- Green felt
- Black felt
- Glue gun
- Black leggings or pants
- Black shoes
- Black headband
Step 1: Create the Pumpkin Face
Start by crafting the pumpkin’s face on a black felt sheet. Draw two triangles for the eyes, an upside-down triangle for the nose and a creepy mouth with jagged teeth. Cut these shapes out and set them aside.
Step 2: Make the Stem
Next, you’ll need to make the pumpkin stem. Cut out a long strip of green felt and fold it in half lengthwise. Use your scissors to make small cuts along the folded edge, creating a fringed effect. Roll the green felt strip tightly to form the stem.
Step 3: Attach the Face and Stem
Use a glue gun to attach the pumpkin face to the front of your orange T-shirt. Then, attach the green stem to the top of the shirt, just above the face.
Step 4: Final Touches
Now it’s time to accessorize your costume. Wear black leggings or pants and black shoes to complete the look. Using your glue gun, attach a black felt strip to a black headband to create a pumpkin vine. You can also add some green leaves by cutting shapes from the leftover green felt and gluing them to the vine.
Voila! You’re a Pumpkin!
And there you have it, a simple yet cute pumpkin Halloween costume that you can make yourself. Have fun and Happy Halloween!
It’s that time of year when there’s pumpkin spice in the air. September and October are rapidly approaching, which can only mean one thing: it’s time to start thinking about Halloween costumes! If you’re looking for a creative DIY costume that is sure to be a hit at any party, then why not take the classic pumpkin look to the next level, with a pumpkin Halloween costume?
With a few simple supplies and a little bit of craftiness, it’s easy to create a fun and unique pumpkin costume. First and foremost, you’ll need some orange fabric to create the pumpkin base. Measure and cut this fabric to create a large circle, then sew it together to create the ‘shell’ of your pumpkin. You can add decorations such as leaves or other embellishments to give it a bit of personality. A large green bow or a branch of faux vines are great accents to convey the spirit of Halloween.
For the finishing touches, all you need to do is complete the costume by adding a black cap or hat and jack o’ lantern face. If you’re feeling extra creative, you can even create your own expressive jack o’ lantern face with cardboard cutouts or felt pieces. Have the kids join in on the fun and draw their own faces on the pumpkin shell – after all, isn’t Halloween about creativity and imagination?
DIY Halloween costumes are a great way to save money and have fun with the entire family. They’re also great for those last-minute parties or get togethers when you’re short on time (or cash!). Put on your pumpkin costume with pride and have a spook-tacularly good time this Halloween!
