After focusing on crafting my kids Halloween costumes, I was pressed for time for my own. I started Googling for ideas and decided to go with a less detailed costume with more detailed hair + makeup. And so, I chose to be a Voodoo doll.
Oh my goodness EASIEST costume ever!!! I used one of my husband’s linen button up shirts (sorry hunny). I cut out the collar and sleeves. The front became the back; and the back became the front. I made a casing at the top and ran a ribbon through it. Voila! Pillow case dress out of a shirt. Next, I used the sleeves to make the heart. They were stuffed with cotton batten and made red with a felt pen.
To make the ‘pins’, I ventured to my craft pin and found foam balls (dollar store) and kabob sticks. I painted the pins black with craft paint and painted ‘stitches’ on the dress. Day of, I went to work on the makeup. Way easier than it looks! White and black eyeliners, red lipstick and fake eyelashes are pretty much the gist of it. I also put some extra ‘pins’ in my hair for some added voodoo effect.
Total cost was zero dollars. Can’t beat that!!
