Easy DIY Felt Gnome Halloween Costume

DIY Gnome Halloween Costume

When I was younger my mom made my Halloween costumes.  When I got older, I made my own Halloween costumes.  To keep the tradition alive, I’ve made Tommy and Evie’s Halloween costumes that last two years.  I figure I have to hold on to this tradition as long as I can because one year they’re going to decide on what they want to be and I may have to purchase it from the store! Tear. :( 

I used a dress Evie had as a template for her gnome dress and Tommy’s gnome shirt.  To make less for me to sew, I folded the felt over and put the straps of the dress on the fold.  After I traced around the template, I cut it out and sewed up the sides.  I did the same thing for Tommy’s gnome shirt, except I cut it so it was shorter.

For Evie’s costume, I cut out two felt flowers and used Thermoweb HeatnBond Ultra to make each flower and to glue the flowers to the dress.  I also cut out a mushroom and followed the same process to get it to stay on her dress.  For more detail, I cut a piece of white felt and added buttons and a bow.  I adhered the white felt and bow with HeatnBond Ultra.

For Tommy’s costume, I cut out a belt using black and grey felt.  Once again, HeatnBond Ultra came to the rescue!  I used this to adhere the belt to the front and back of his costume.

To make the hats, I looked at this tutorial.   It was super simple to make!   After I made the hats, I added batting to the inside so they would keep their shape.   Since my kids couldn’t leave the batting alone, I cut out a small circle of felt and hot glued it inside the hat so the batting was contained.  Before gluing it on, I made sure my kids’ heads would fit!

This is a pretty simple costume to make with only a little bit of sewing, but if you can’t sew, you can always glue it shut!  I’m really glad I had my HeatnBond, which made it so much easier to make and more professional looking than a glue gun!  I love how these turned out, but I don’t think anything will top the cuteness of their skunk costumes I made them last year. :)

Happy Halloween!
