How to Make a Child's Shepherd Costume

Save

Making a homemade shepherd costume for Halloween or a Christmas play is easy. Gather a few supplies that you have lying around the house to create a shepherd costume your child will love. You can put together the costume in no time at all because there is no sewing, gluing or stitching involved.

Things You'll Need

  • Plain cotton nightgown
  • Robe
  • Scissors
  • Pillowcase
  • Elastic headband
  • Sandals
  • Cane or long stick
  • Find a plain cotton nightgown in a neutral color that is ankle-length on your child. A long sleeve nightgown will look more authentic and help keep your child warm.

  • Use a neutral colored or black robe to cover the nightgown. Try to use a short sleeve robe or cut the sleeves off of a long sleeve robe to recreate the look of a shepherd. Tie the robe loosely around the waist or leave it open.

  • Cut a pillowcase in half lengthwise to use as a headpiece for the shepherd costume. Use the elastic headband to keep the pillowcase in place on your child's head.

  • Use flat sandals for shoes. Leather sandals with straps will closely resemble a shepherd's footwear. However, any sandals will do if you are creating the costume on a budget.

  • Find an old cane to finish of the costume to use as a staff. If you do not have a cane, you can also use a long stick.
