How to Make a DIY Halloween Costume With a Hoodie!

Make your kids their own unique, economical, no-sew Halloween costumes this year with a simple plain hoodie sweatshirt. 

  • Choose a color to match the type of outfit, such as green for a dinosaur or pink for a poodle. 
  • Cut out details from felt or use items such as pompons to form a head on the hood, a tail at the bottom back or even wings under the arms. 
  • If you can't sew, use a hot-glue gun. 

Encourage kids to use their imagination and help you make any kind of costume, from animals to characters. Added bonus: You can remove the add-ons after Halloween and still have a hoodie for kids to wear!
