DIY Wolf Halloween Costume

Hey Cuties,

Halloween is around the corner and I’ve been working on DIY Halloween costumes for the kids. I’m making the girl child a clown costume and Lambie from Doc McStuffins costume. This Wolf costume is for the male child. I’m also making a Monster costume for a news segment I’m participating in. I’ve made them really easy for you to follow and I give you a sew and no sew option. No creative skills required and they cost less than $15.00 to make but look like you spent much more than that. I will post them all before Halloween.

My son turns 11 next month and Halloween costumes are getting harder by the year. He isn’t a little kid but not quite a big kid. {Sings: Too high to get over yeah yeah, too low to go under, yeah yeah. Ya stuck in the middle.} He wants to look cool but not baby-ish. This costume is perfect for the pre-teen and teen. They can be original, yet cool while not doing much. Best of all it is cheap to make.

The base of this costume is a hooded sweat shirt. These are my favorite type of costumes to make.  The first costume I made was an owl made from a hoodie.

Supplies: Gray hoodie, white felt, gray felt, black felt and yellow felt. If you want to sew add in some needle and thread. If you don’t want to sew add in a hot glue gun. Template HERE

I printed out the template, cut the pieces out then traced them on to my felt.

I used my stick pins to hold everything in place. This is a great way to test your placement.

I started stitching the face first, I used some black thread and did it by hand. Someone buy me a sewing machine for Christmas.

All done! It fits great and he loves it.

    That is so cute! I think the best Halloween costumes are the ones we make ourselves.

  7. Sicorra@NotNowMomsBusy

    Love the idea that put created a costume for your 11 year old son. It turned out very nice, and I like that it will be unique, and warm, if the evening gets a bit chilly out. Hope he enjoys Halloween!

      Thanks Sicorra. I try to make sure the kids can also be warm under their costumes. They are layer friendly for sure. Have a Happy Halloween.

  8. Tyra

    Okay that is really cute! And I wouldn’t have to sew, which I am horrible at! LOL

    What an inexpensive way to get festive! I could actually handle that kind of DIY!

  18. Uplifting Families

    This is a cute idea. I usually do DIY costumes for my kids. I don’t see any point in spending a ton of money on a Halloween costume.

  19. Chubskulit Rose

    Wow, you are so creative. I wish I have the skill to just make the kids costume.

  20. Rosey

    WEll that’s really cute. I bet you could sell those, especially this time of year. 🙂

  21. Starkey

    OMG! This is so cute! I am currently working on some diy costumes for the holiday parade. This is a great idea to try making my Snoopy costume with a hoodie. Great suggestion!

  22. Shawana

    How cute and creative! I would have never thought that could be made using a hoodie. I love the pink owl!

  23. HilLesha

    That is adorable! I have never tried making a costume before. But alas, I lack creativity there! 🙂

  24. Ann Bacciaglia

    This is a fantastic costume idea. I will have to show this to my Son. His girlfriend is dressing up as little red riding hood.

  25. JoAnna

    This is so creative and it’s good if it’s chilly outside too.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Yes JoAnna, I try to factor weather into my designs. I want the kids to be able to layer up under their costumes for the really cold nights.

  26. Nicole (Nicole's Lifestyle Lounge)
