We’ve short-listed some great ideas for you to make your own Halloween costume. Ready for lots of tips and ideas for the best homemade Halloween costumes for children?
DIY Dragon costume for kids
This simple and fun costume has an added advantage: it can warm up your child! In order to turn your kid into the most magical dragon, you will need the following material: felt fabric, thread and a needle. We recommend you combine different colours, e.g. your child’s favourite colours, so the scales of the dragon can stand out in a different colour than that of the main fabric.
Cut the cloak in the size needed for your child and sew in the scales vertically all along the cloak. To make the tail, cut a long-shaped triangle as seen in the image. Finally, sew in some scales at the very end of the tale.
An even easier version of this dragon costume for kids is to use a long black jumper and sew in the scales. A winner either way!
