Rake It Or Leave It Costume

Rake It Or Leave It Costume

After trying and failing the night before the school Halloween parade to make my son the tennis racket costume that he desperately wanted, I scrambled for a costume that I could make in the early hours before school. I was fed up with the costume thing and could not ask him if he would wear what I had in mind as he was sound asleep. I had the attitude that he could "take it or leave it".

I looked outside at the yard full of bagged leaves and then put the two ideas together to make the RAKE IT OR LEAVE IT COSTUME! Very inexpensive and extremely easy to make. I used the actual bags that had leaves in them, putting two together and then cutting out the bottom, head and arm holes. The leaves are all real and I went crazy with the glue gun. The costume was a hit for my very picky son and crowds loved it at the school parade.

Coolest Cutest Pile of Leaves Costume 4

Pile of Leaves Costume

I wanted to make a costume that was original and cute for my son but we were broke so I needed something cheap. I then came up with this idea for a pile of leaves costume

I went to a resale shop for kids clothing and purchased a plain black hooded jacket, that was several sizes too big. I then went to a craft store that had a floral department and bought fake fall leaves, they were still on the stems. I also bought a box of safety pins but you could use a hot glue gun.

I think took all the leaves off the stems and safety pinned them to the black jacket so that they covered the jacket and the hood. When you put it on him he looked like a pile of leaves!! Too Cute!!

You could also try sewing them with a hearty cord in a similar color like orange or red to cut down on total weight, but LOVE this idea for a boy's costume...

Actually, you could use this in a haunted house for an adult too...
