Cool Homemade Mary Poppins Costume

Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays of the year and it’s a great way to get creative. I have to say putting this Mary Poppins costume together took me on a treasure hunt. The funnest part was putting all if it together.

The carpet bag was the hardest piece to find but makes the costume. Everyone I encountered loved the costume and my son thought I was the real Mary Poppins.

Here are the Steps for my Mary Poppins costume:

1. The first step is to study parts of the Mary Poppins movie and pictures to get a sense of the details of the costume.

2. Find several thrift stores in your area.

3. Items you will need:


  • Black Hat (Add/Glue 3 plastics white flowers from Michaels or the 99 cent store)
  • Orange/Red Scarf – Large Carpet Bag (I feel this bag really makes the costume – search all thrift stores, online or Craigslist)
  • White Gloves
  • Black Tights
  • Black Pointy Shoes (see picture)
  • Black Umbrella (You can add a Bird or Parrot to it.)


  • Long Blue trench coat
  • White Shirt
  • Blue Skirt (below knee in length)

Make Up and Hair:

  • Heavy Make up: foundation, eyes and red lips
  • Hair Pulled Back

Have fun and I can’t wait to see more Mary Poppins costumes. Happy Halloween!
