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.


Step 1

Lay the sweatshirt and the sweatpants on a flat surface.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Dress your child in her outfit.


Step 5

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.


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.
