Day 16 – Witch DIY Halloween Costume Tutorial Cheap Easy


Witch Costume Tutorial

I’ve always just adored a little girl in a witch costume, but then, Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. Isn’t she just the sweetest wicked thing? Ha ha!

And with products from Always Under Pay, we make this super fun and simple to make!


(our pieces available for ages 1-9 years)

Materials Needed:

Black Leotard

Orange Black Dot Pettiskirt or a Black Ribbon Lined Ballet Tutu and an Orange Ballet Tutu (layered for fullness)

Black Marabou Boa (just a small piece)

Black/Orange Gerber Daisy Flower Clip (or two if you want one for tutus)

Black Satin Lined Plastic Headband

Halloween Chunky Necklace

Cape (Optional)

Felt Mini Witch’s Hat

Scrap Pieces of Black Felt

Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks


Witch’s Hat Headband Tutorial

Materials Needed:


Step One:

Cut a piece of marabou boa just long enough to go around the bottom of the cone on the felt witch’s hat. I didn’t take a picture of this step, but mine ended up at about 8”.

Step Two:

Using the glue gun, run a bead of hot glue around the rim of felt witch’s hat (maybe a little neater than I did).


Step Three:

Take that small piece of marabou boa from step one and lay it around the base of the cone against the hot glue.


Step Four:

Carefully separate the clip from your daisy flower as shown below. I had to wiggle mine back and forth and gently pull on it a bit.

Step Five:

Place a good size dob of hot glue on the back of your daisy flower and then glue it to the side of your witch’s hat over the marabou boa as shown below.


Step Six:

Now, using your hot glue again, put two strips of hot glue on the under side of the witch’s hat right across from one another (You could probably do this neater than I did too lol.).


Step Seven:

Place the outer edge of the headband up against the hot glue and hold the pieces against one another with your fingers for a few minutes to dry. If you want your hat tilted to the side, just put the headband on the glue a bit tilted.


Step Eight:

That last step is pretty messy looking, so I just took two pieces of scrap felt, trimmed them into nice looking rectangles, and hot glued them on top of the ugly glue mess on the last step.


Done! Isn’t that just cute as can be? Ready for some bewitching fun!

One last photo. I took these with the cape on, but it covered some important cute stuff. However, these new capes would be a great addition to this costume to keep your trick-or-treater warm on that October evening.
