Flower Power Halloween Costume

Although it's fall, put a little spring in your trick-or-treater's step with a simply adorable flower Halloween costume.

What You'll Need

  • Paper-cone coffee filters
  • Tempera paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Green paper tablecloths
  • Safety pins
  • Elastic headband
  • Bee pin (optional)
  • Slip-on shoes (preferably yellow)
  • Black electrical tape
  • Googly eyes
  • Chenille stems
  • Black pom-poms
  • Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
  • Clear packing tape
  • Bubble Wrap

How to Make It

  1. Paint coffee filters in various colors; let dry.
  2. Trim filters to 3- to 4-inch circles and layer three together; pinch each set of filters at the center to make a flower.
  3. Cut leaf shapes from tablecloths using the photo as a guide. Place two leaves (one of each size) underneath a flower. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make more flowers and leaves.
  4. Push a safety pin through the flower centers and leaves to secure them and use the pins to attach flowers around the shirt neckline and on the headband.
  5. Attach a bee pin to one of the flowers on the neckline if desired.
  6. For each shoe: Make parallel stripes, about 1/2 inch apart, on the sides of a shoe with black tape. Adhere two googly eyes to the toe. Bend a 6-inch piece of chenille stem in half to make antennae and tape about 1/2 inch above the eyes. Hot-glue a pom-pom to each end of the chenille stem.
  7. Cut two 4-inch-long teardrop shapes from Bubble Wrap; tape them to the inside of the shoe for wings.
