How to Make a Kid's Sheep Costume


The little animal Halloween costumes you find in retail stores are really cute, but they can be costly. You can save yourself some money if you have a little time to spare and create your own costume from scratch. With a few basic steps, you can create a sheep costume for your child.

Things You'll Need

  • White hooded sweatshirt
  • White sweatpants
  • Pillow stuffing or cotton balls
  • Black shoes
  • Double-sided tape or glue
  • Lay the sweatshirt and the sweatpants on a flat surface.

  • Attach fiberfill or cotton balls to the clothing. If you would like to reuse the clothing after Halloween, attach them with double-sided tape.

  • Apply cotton balls or fiberfill to the back side of the clothing. Don't miss any part of the outfit; even the arms and the hood of the sweatshirt should be covered.

  • Dress your child in her outfit.

  • Apply white makeup to a small area of his face to test for allergies, then apply the makeup to the entire face. Apply a little black to the tip of the nose.

Tips & Warnings

  • Allow enough time to complete the whole costume. If you are using glue, you will need to allow for it to dry, preferably overnight.
  • Teach a small child how to "baa" before she goes out trick-or-treating.
  • This costume will keep your child warm in if he'll be outside in the cold for a long period of time.
