Halloween isn’t just for kids, but they DO want us to make costumes for them, don’t they. Here are a few freebies I’ve found around the ‘net so you can get a head start on the holiday costuming. Well, maybe just in time, especially if you’re a slow crocheter like me. Hope you’ll find something here that will suit you!
This cute little fairy needs……. something. See below for the finishing touch.
Maybe you want to add a little swash to your buckle. These could be made for adults or kids.
I often choose the minimalist method. Less masquerade, less work. Also could be used for a guy or gal – or an older kid. Not sure I’d put this on a tot.
Along with your mask, you could push the look a bit further with a ‘fright’ wig. Pull out all your scrap yarn and go for it!
Or, make these two sweet pieces and wear them together. You might be mistaken for Princess Kate or her sis, Pippa.
Wear that fascinator atop this sophisticated little capelet that you stitch with matching yarn. Exquisite!
Work up a really fast mustache for an adult or a child. You can glue it to your face or hold it like it’s shown in the picture. Simple!
Costume ideas can be a bit more difficult for the grown men. When all else fails, crochet him a hat. Here’s a site with seven crazy choices. And, if you take the pup with you, the pup’s gotta go with the program. Any dog can be a hot dog, right?
