Costumes & Crafts

Make Halloween magic without toil or trouble!

Things You'll Need

  • 5 yards of white or off-white lightweight cotton material
  • White or off-white cloths (old long johns will work) with a long-sleeved shirt
  • Low temperature glue gun or Tacky Glue
  • Scissors
  • Eye liner and white makeup (optional)

How to Make

  • If your fabrics are bright white, soak them in unsweetened tea for an hour, rinse and let dry.

  • Cut the fabric into 3-5 inch wide strips.

  • Have child put on the pants and long-sleeved shirt.

  • Set glue gun temperature to LOW and glue fabric to hold the ends in place. Begin wrapping at the neck line.

  • Apply glue in other areas as you wrap to hold bandages in place.

  • Splotch on watered-down greenish-yellow paint for "mold".

  • For the mask, use a leftover piece of fabric that is approximately the size of a bandana and cut out holes for eyes and mouth. Wrap around face and head and tie in the back.

  • Use white makeup on the face. Make the face look aged by having the child wrinkle up their face and draw the lines in the wrinkles using eye liner.
