Coolest Homemade Thing 1 and Thing 2 Halloween Costumes

My daughter and her friend wanted to do something together so I suggested a Homemade Thing 1 and Thing 2 Halloween Costumes from the movie, “The Cat in the Hat.” It was a great idea. The headpiece was made out of a carwash mat. I cut the backs in half,then sewed them together to fit the head. Painted their faces and put tissue under their top lips to make them poke out.

I took a white self-adhesive felt sheet and cut it in a circle, drew Thing 1 and Thing 2 with a black marker. I took red bedroom shoes and glued red feathers on them and sowed them to the end of the pants legs. This character was great for these two because their character personalities are really similar to their own personalities.

When we went trick-or-treating, they got many positive responses on their costumes. This is a really good costume for friends and siblings of all ages.

  1. Thank You Thank You. Your idea was awesome. My daughters are going to school on Friday, the week of Cat in the Hat, and they are going to look GREAT. I am not crafty so when I saw what you did and how easy it was I ran out and bought the items.
    Thank you Again.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing. You’ve really helped with the “hair” idea!! We’ll post after Halloween.

  3. This is perfect for my 4 yr old twin grandchildren Ally & Emmy. I cant wait to make them, the blue hair is so creative, i would have never thought of that!
