How to make a flower Halloween costume?
There are several costumes which you can design for your children, but in this article, we will guide you on how you can design a flower Halloween costume? Flower Halloween costume can be a perfect design for your children and it doesn’t need much material and cost to prepare. In order to design this costume, you will need green colored pant and shirt, one-third yard of green felt and petal color fabric, half inch elastic and thick green ribbon, one inch to two inches thick yellow ribbon and sewing materials like a sewing machine, scissors, pins, and thread.
Step by step guide :
Now coming to the preparation part – first of all, you have to design the arm leaves and for this cut a rectangle from the green felt which measures 38 inches in length and 12 inches in width. Then cut an arc into the edges by using the scissors so the green rectangle will look like a leaf. After you are done with this step, use green ribbon and sew it around the edges of the leaf by stitching in a zigzag way. Next, you have to add veins so that the green cloth will look like a real leaf and so, add the green ribbon in the center and as you will be using a zigzag stitch, you don’t need to stitch on the both sides of the leaf.
After designing of the leaf, attach arm holes so that your child can wear it and stretch his or her arms. To make the arm holes on the leaf, you can use the elastic. Cut it into two different sized strips, two into 10-inch sized strips and the other two into 6 inched strips. In the next step, pin those strips to the top most center of the main leaf, but make sure you have maintained 10-inch gap between them. After that, fold one of the 6-inch strips in such a way so that the edges make a loop at the end. Once you are done with these steps, sew them on both sides to make it strong.
Next step is to design the petal and to make it, you will need yellow ribbon and alternative felt color. Cut the felt into six or seven large oval shaped dimensions. Fold them in half and sew the outer edge. Then thread the petals onto the yellow ribbon to make petal ring circle and add a ribbon to make it a perfect costume. Now having made the whole flower designed costume, wear them with green shirts and pants.
