DIY Halloween Kid’s Costumes Handmade Fast & Easy

Halloween Costumes Easy How To Collars and Tutu

Today I have a quick and easy tutorial for handmade Halloween costumes or rather a how to create kid’s costumes at home with just one handmade piece for each costume.  Today, I’m sharing how to make a collar and a tutu that are versatile for any costume.  Here I’ve show them as a princess or ballerina for the tulle tutu skirt, a clown for the collar with pom poms, and an adorable lion for the ruffled tulle collar.  However, you can adapt any of these easy projects to work with so many other planned costumes.

Before the Halloween costume project, be sure to stop by any of our Etsy shops for some Halloween favors and Fall decorations to get ready for the spooky coming holiday:
