Easy Witch Costume

This is a picture of my niece, Tehra (a few years back), in her homemade witch's costume. That particular year, she needed a Halloween costume, but money was tight, so my mom and I made her this costume at a cost of probably $2 or so!

Her witch's dress was two leftover pieces of black material that I sewed together into a very simple a-line dress (and trust me, I'm not a good seamstress)!

Her necklace was a piece of curling ribbon with a glow-in-the-dark plastic star hot glued onto it. Her wand was a stick, painted purple, with sparkly curling ribbon and decorative Halloween wire with spiders on it.

The only thing that probably cost anything was her plastic witch's hat! I think she just wore black shoes to complete the costume. It was very easy to make, but as you can see, she looked REALLY cute! We were glad the costume turned out so well, and cost so little to make.

Another way to make a wand for witches, magicians, angels, and all.

Put double-stick tape around the end of a dowel. At one end, wrap ribbon around the dowel to stick and then wrap it around the dowel at an angle all the way down to cover the dowel. Hot glue, staple or pin on the accessories you like.

Old wrapping ribbon curls are good, as are any little things from the junk drawer, party drawer, sewing/knitting staples or toy stash.

An excellent costume. Great idea. Very creative. You could probably do a fairy godmother version, too, with silvery material instead of black.
