This homemade costume for kids entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Candace, the 'Tree' costume creator:

My niece Celestine is wearing a tree costume that I made for her. I made this costume completely from scratch using foam, fabric, paint, fall leaf garland, wire hangers, and hot glue. My niece came up with the idea to be a tree because My daughter and I decided we would be a squirrel and an acorn and she wanted to be part of the theme! I attached the leaf garland to foam rings and added wire hangers for stability. I painted "bark" onto brown fleece fabric and cut 2 arm holes and a face hole. I then used fabric and ribbon to create 2 owl holes in the tree, and attached 2 wooded owls. I attached the fabric the foam rings that my niece wore as a "hat". And thats it! She really loves this costume and gets compliments every time she wears it! It's definately a huge hit! :)

Hi! Thank you so much for this tutorial. I desperately needed it. How much fabric did you use? Reply when ever you can. (:

Any chance I could get more detailed instructions? I'm a theatre teacher who would like to make this for a play I'm working on. Thank you.
