Put together a great Halloween costume with the ideas in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- A white sheet
- A light colored baseball hat
- A pen or pencil
- Four safety pins
- A black magic marker
- A goodie bag
Cut brim off hat
Cut off the brim of the hat.
Check out length of costume
Drape the sheet over the head of the person who's going to wear the costume. If it's dragging on the ground, mark a comfortable length with pen or pencil.
Mark center of head and eye position
Mark the sheet at the center of the person's head while the sheet is still draped on them. Then, have them poke their fingers from the inside of the sheet to indicate where their eyes are, and mark where the eyeholes will go.
Pin ball cap
Remove the sheet and pin the baseball cap to the mark in the middle. Add a few more pins to secure the cap in place.
Cut eyeholes where the eye positions were marked, and circle the edges with black magic marker.
Trim the edges of the sheet to the desired length and put the costume on by throwing on the sheet and pulling on the hat. Now grab your goodie bag, and head out for a night of trick or treating.
