Cupid Baby Halloween Costume

Time: 2 hours

Effort: More difficult — some sewing required

Materials:

  • Plain white or pale blue pillowcase (queen-size or king-size is best)
  • Toy bow and arrow set
  • Feathered wings (available at costume shops)
  • Laurel wreath
  • Length of gold cord for belt
  • Scissors, safety pins, needle and thread

Instructions: Cut the bottom of the pillowcase, so it's open at both ends. At one end, make a slit in the sides about eight inches long. Pin or stitch the case back together at the tops of the slits to make armholes. The pillowcase should now resemble a dress!

Wrap the gold cord around your child's waist as a belt. Attach the wings, and set the laurel wreath on her head. She will carry the bow and arrow set.

Other details: This costume fits smaller children. If you're making this for an older child, use a crib sheet instead of a pillowcase, and simply wrap it around and pin it at one shoulder. The rest of the directions will be about the same.

Everyone will fall in love with your little "god of love"!
