Although you will probably have to hit a hobby store to find most of the items for these adorable animal costumes, some of the items can be found at home -- like, scissors, a hot glue gun, markers, paint and double-sided tape. So not only will the costume be cute, it will also be cheaper than a store bought one -- and much more creative!
Attach the powder puff, pompom or cotton balls to the back of the sweat pants using double-sided tape [or fabric glue] Next, bend the coat hanger into the shape of two long bunny ears and gently stretch the panty hose over the ears--attach to plastic the headband. Remember to carry a carrot!
Tip: If you don' plan on reusing the sweatsuit, then you can use fabric glue instead of double-sided tape -- it will hold better.
Cut the faux fur into a long strip and adhere to the hood of the jacket and down the back. Adhere with strips of double-sided tape [r fabric glue] Then, cut a small oval shape for the tummy area and adhere with fabric glue. For the ears, cut two triangles from the black felt. Either hand sew or glue onto the hood. Lastly, have your child wear one pair of black socks on their hands and one pair on their feet.
Tip: Hand sewing the ears will make them easy to remove so you can reuse the sweatsuit after Halloween!
Using small pieces of double-sided tape, attach fabric circles to the sweatsuit in various different areas. Cut two floppy ears from one sheet of the felt and either hand sew or hot glue onto the hood. Cut a long tail from the second sheet of felt and attach to the back of the pants with a safety pin. Have child wear one pair of socks on her hands and one pair on her feet. Top off with a dog collar or a belt cut short to serve to as a collar.
