A Pile of Leaves Costume


Looking for a quick and easy last minute costume for Halloween? I made this Pile of Leaves costume for Evangeline in only a few hours! This costume is super cute and paired with a tiny child's rake, you can have a unique, handmade costume ready for Halloween night!


I bought a bunch of faux Maple and Oak leaves from AC Moore during a sale promotion. I used about 6 bags of leaves for her size 2T outfit. The outfit was a pair of red fleece pants and a long sleeve red t-shirt. These are simple basics that you may already have tucked away in dresser drawers!


Using my trusty hot glue gun, I started at the bottom of the garments. Working my way up, I glued leaves in a random pattern covering both the front and back. The headband was another item that I already had in my home! Using hot glue again, I covered the top of the brown headband with leaves. 


Now Eva is smiling and ready for a fun night of trick-or-treating!
