Pile of Leaves Costume

Time: 2 hours

Effort: Fairly easy - some sewing

Materials:

  • Brown, green, red, or camouflage sweats with hooded sweatshirt
  • Artificial fall-colored leaves (silk, paper, or cut out of felt)
  • Small rake as prop if child is old enough to hold it
  • Face paint
  • Glue or needle and thread

Instructions: Stick leaves all over the sweatshirt in a random pattern. Cover the outfit completely. Color cheeks brown, green, and red to camouflage.

Tips: If you have to create a larger costume, make your own leaves. Silk leaves can get expensive!
