Quick & Easy Halloween Spider Costume

How to make a quick and easy halloween spider costume…

Twenty four hours prior to a halloween party my daughter decides she wishes to go, dressed up. I don’t know about you but it would grate to spend money on a costume she is only going to wear once. Likewise I didn’t have hours to make something intricate or complicated.

I hit upon the idea of a spiders web cut out from felt, loosely stitched onto an existing top. Initially I planned on making a red dress but realised that a) I didn’t have the fabric and b) we could use clothes she already had!

To make your own, you will need felt, an old top, tailors chalk, scissors and thread.

Start by loosely cutting out your felt to the size of your top.
