Ghost Costume

Time: 10 minutes

Effort: Quick and easy – no sewing required

Materials:

  • An old white pillowcase (one you don't need anymore)
  • Black eyeliner or black/white makeup
  • Scissors
  • White sash, cut from another old pillowcase (optional)

Instructions: Turn the pillowcase inside out. Put it on over your child's head and mark a circle where your child's face is. Take the pillowcase off and cut out the circle.

Put the pillowcase back on your child's head, pulling it down over the shoulders. Mark where the armholes will be. Take the pillowcase off, lay it flat, and cut out a half-moon on either side for armholes.

Apply white face makeup to your child's face. Outline the eyes in black eyeliner.

Other details: If this costume is slipping around too much, tie a white sash around your child's middle.
