Dress your child in the bodysuit and begin to create the head of the lion by attaching on a rectangular piece of cardboard pieces of paper to completely cover the surface. Then glue two pieces of ribbon on each side, put it on the baby’s head and tie it.

Snail costume


A clever idea for the Halloween costume is to transform it into a cute snail. To put the project into practice, you need a roll of wrapping paper, cardboard, masking tape, a headband, artificial snow balls, ribbons and stickers. Roll generous peaces of wrapping paper and stick them together so that you get the shell.
When the shell has the desired shape, take a piece of cardboard where you will stick on the shell(wrapping paper). Once your shell is completed, you can begin making the antenas. Twist the two pieces of wrapping paper, then stick one on top of each artificial snow ball. Finally, attach each antenna on your headband.

Superhero costume


All you have to do is to dress your child in a gray or black bodysuit, a pair of briefs (green or red) over the jump suit of course, a fashioned a cape and a mask in the same shade with the briefs. Cut a rectangular piece of red or green material, and sew two pieces of ribbon on each side. Then the from the same material or cardboard, cut out a simple mask and glue some elastic so it can stay in place.

Bumblebee costume


Another Halloween costume for kids, easy to do is the bee. You will need a pair of black pants, a yellow shirt, black material, fabric glue, a black headband, artificial snow balls, wire covered in fabric, acrylic paint and a cutter. Using the cutter, cut a few strips of black material which then can be stick or sew on the yellow shirt to create the stripes.
In order to manufacture the bee antennas, make two holes in the headband, in which you add wires wrapped in cloth at the end of which you stuck in advance artificial snow balls.
