Looking for an Easy Ghost Costume tutorial for Halloween? We’ve got it right here!
My three-year-old was so excited to be a ghost this year! When I was little I always felt like my Mom made the best costumes so I wanted to make sure he felt that way too. I asked him what he wanted it to look like and he said he wanted his ghost costume to float like a real ghost, glow in the dark, and make his face look spooky. To say I felt a little intimidated by the task is an understatement!
I really love what we came up with though! The tulle makes the ghost costume seem like it floats. The pictures don’t do it justice. When he walks around the tulle flies in the air. The top piece of the ghost costume isn’t attached so he can easily take it on and off if it’s bugging him. We tried to put glow sticks under him to make him glow, but they didn’t look that great so we settled on a glow necklace that his Grandma gave him, which he loves. (not pictured) He loved getting his face painted too!
WHAT YOU NEED:
White stretch fabric
Sewing machine (optional) or Safety pins
Halloween Makeup (White and Black)
- You are going to basically be making a tunic, so measure and cut the white piece of fabric to drape over your child’s shoulders without getting in the way of his feet.
- Measure and cut about five layers of tulle (although, even one will be fine.)
- Lay the layers on top of each other with the white layer on the bottom.
- Fold them all in half and cut a hole for your child’s head at the top of the fold.
- (if you want the costume to last forever you can re-open the layers and sew around the hole, but to last for just a few Halloween adventures you will be fine not sewing it all together. You could even just safety pin the layers together so they don’t move or get lost.)
- Cut a piece of Tulle to drape over the face.
- Paint your little ghost’s face and let him go a haunting!!
