DIY: Halloween Onesies

Rachel Low, from Pins & Needles, is sharing an easy Halloween DIY for your littlest ones today. Thanks for sharing, Rachel!

Are you trying to find the perfect costume for your little one? Why not make one? Here is a DIY that shows you how to make three “boootiful” costumes that are quick and easy to do using a onesie, felt and a few sewing notions. Make a skeleton, jack o’ lantern or ghost.

Materials: onesie, felt, template, scissors, thread, pins and either a sewing machine, hand sewing needle or fabric glue

Step 1: Print and cut out the template of the costume of your choice (templates: skeleton, jack o’ lantern and ghost). You can also draw your own pattern if you like.

Step 2: Pin the felt pieces to your onesie and stitch in place. I used a sewing machine here, but hand sewing or fabric gluing everything onto the onesie is also an option. If using fabric glue, you can skip the pinning.

Voila! Your baby is ready for trick or treating!

Take it a step further and make yourself a matching costume using a basic t-shirt. All you need to do is enlarge the templates 100% – 150% and follow the same steps outlined above. We made a matching skeleton!


Happy Halloween!

    This is so cute! I was still trying to decide for a nice little costume for my baby, and now I think I already know, thanks a lot :)

    Cute! You can actually try other designs and other costume ideas using felt. The good thing is that felt is easy to cut and sew, so you’d have no problem executing whatever you have in mind.

    You’re right. Felt is a pretty convenient material. It makes DIY projects like this really easy.

    I truly hate spending a lot for Halloween costumes. Good thing I was able to convince my kiddos to go as zombies, where all I would need are old clothes, some makeup, and something that would pass as blood (might just be using red watercolor). No need to spend a dime! At first, my suggestion was met with tears, as one wanted to be a Monster High character and the other wanted to be a Backyardigan.

    I want to make the pumpkin for my daughter. I have not been able to find an orange onesie. Does anyone know where I can find one?
