No Sew Witch Costume
Just a few supplies and a couple pre-made items and you can have the cutest witch on the block. We love dressing up for Halloween at our house. We especially love a good family costume. Be sure to see our favorite costumes. This year Bella wanted to be a witch and Michael’s Arts & Crafts challenged me to make a Halloween costume from supplies at their store. So a witch it is!
To make this costume purchase a witch hat, socks and broom.
Complement these items with a t-shirt turned into a vest embellished with eyelets and ribbon. Spools of tule and a Halloween table runner make the spooky skirt.
How to make a vest from a t-shirt
Lay t-shirt out flat.
Cut off sleeves and shorten the shirt if necessary. Leave extra length to trim points in the front of the vest at the end.
Cut a slit up the front of the shirt.
Cut each side of the neck at an angle.
Grab an eyelet tool and 8 sets of eyelets. Fold each side of the front of the shirt under about an 1 1/2″.
Evenly space grommets down each side.
Lace it up with some cute ribbon.
The skirt for this costume starts with a DIY tulle tutu and is topped with a lacy spider web table runner.
How to make a tutu
We used this tutorial on how to make a tutu. However, in that tutu tutorial I purchased tulle off the bolt from a fabric store. Now having made the tutus both ways, I think the tulle off the bold makes a more durable tutu. Both methods do work.
Start with tulle and an elastic headband or piece of elastic. I used two roll, but could have easily added more.
Decide how long the tutu is to be, add a few extra inches for the knot and double this amount. Cut lengths of tulle.
Place elastic headband around your thigh. Fold length of tulle in half and place under the elastic headband.
Reach under the loop.
Continue all the way around the elastic headband.
This tulle tutu is great as is or embellish it with a lace spiderweb table runner. All you need is a table runner, black ribbon and Peel-n-Stick Fabric Fuse.
Measure waist and add a few inches for tying. Place Peel-n-Stick on back of ribbon. (leave a few inches free of tape for tying or securing with no-sew velcro.
Gather table runner along sticky ribbon securing table runner to the ribbon.
Place lace spider web skirt over tulle tutu.
