This Elmo costume was made from a pattern that I used last year for my little man’s skeleton costume. It is a Simplicity pattern # 4467. The pattern comes with 4 different costumes in it. I used the one for the skeleton.
I purchased some red fleece at a local fabric store. I made the Elmo costume according to the instructions which are very simple. I bought some Styrofoam balls and cut out 2 black circles and glued them onto the Styrofoam with FabricTac. I purchased a Styrofoam egg cut it in half and covered it in orange felt. I glued them onto the top of the hood and I was finished.
It took about 2 hours to complete from the cutting out of the fabric to gluing the eyes and nose on. I had fun making it and my son loved being Elmo for Halloween this year.
Total Spent: $15.00
