We created Austyn’s Homemade Little Hobo Child Halloween Costume by using an old sweater with plaid patches sewn inside and out. I used sand paper to wear the clothing down to look old and rugged. I also took scissors across the sweater and pants to make the holes in them.

We got an old man’s hat and sewed patches and fabric around the brim of the hat. I happened to find a pair of hobo shoes at a five and dime store which made the costume complete. Bandanna tied onto a stick we hand picked out in the woods. Used mascara on his face for the mustache and beard.

It took me about an hour to make the entire costume.
