(20 crafty days of halloween) no-sew indian costumes

Still looking for a creative Halloween costume idea? Grab some old shirts and make your own Indian costumes for your entire family! You might remember this family from last Halloween’s Care Bear costume post. Yup, they are pretty awesome neighbors and friends. They totally outdid themselves again this year. Keep reading to learn how to make these DIY Indian costumes.

Nicole used Blogilates’ DIY Pocahontas costume tutorial for the shirts and her costume. Check out my tips for hand dying fabric, it’s super easy! She embellished the girls’ shirts with small red and aqua beads that she found at the craft store. For her husband’s shirt, she left the sleeves and just cut fringe along the edges. The little girls’ boots were found on zulily.com and her boots were purchased at Target.

Of course, her girls wanted to be “princess Indians” so she made them brown tutus with an aqua bow using Lily & Bliss’ tutu tutorial (one of the fastest tutu tutorials I’ve seen). She crafted up female headbands using glittered feathers hot glued to a small piece of leather and attached to a small piece of elastic in the back. Her husband’s headdress was purchased at a Halloween store.

What Indian family is complete without a DIY teepee? Nicole crafted up their teepee using Writing Chapter Three’s teepee tutorial, which will turn into a fun playhouse for their girls after Halloween is over. I love how Nicole pieced together her costumes using different tutorials found online. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to come up with a unique costume idea. My little fish can’t wait to go trick-or-treating with these darling little Indian girls!

I'm Vanessa and it's my mission in life to spread my love of hot glue guns and glitter to others. I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it. My first craft book, Party in a Jar, was published in 2014. I look forward to crafting with you!
