Costumes & Crafts

Make Halloween magic without toil or trouble!

Things You'll Need

  • 4 square foam pads, at least 3 ft. X 3 ft. (such as those used for padding chairs)
  • 1 yard of black felt
  • 1 yard of white felt
  • Cardboard
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Chalk
  • White outfit

How to Make

  • Cut the foam squares to fit comfortably on the child (suggested length should cover shoulders to hips).

  • Glue the foam together to make a cube with no bottom or top.

  • Add arm holes by cutting "X" patterns a few inches from the top.

  • Use a circular object or cut a circle out of cardboard to use as a template for the dots. Use the template to trace circles on the black felt with chalk.

  • Cut out the circles from the felt and glue them onto the exterior of your foam dice (use a real pair of dice for reference).

  • Cut the white felt so it fits perfectly over the top, and glue into place.

  • Cut a small hole for the head. Fit for comfort, but keep enough felt uncut to support the weight of the costume onto the shoulders.

  • Wear a white outfit underneath.
