Don't want to buy a costume?

No problem! (I made the dragon)

We can make one!

It's easy and a lot of fun

Gather the materials

paper grocery bags, glue, construction paper (or any color paper), and sharpies. Then any random stuff you think would be helpful

Figure out what you want to be

The paper bags are really good at being cut and shaped into almost anything. Great for masks and random head shapes.

Draw it out. Figure out what cuts will look the best

Plan how you will cut the bags to make them look good and fit. This is up to the individual costume. For my dragon, I split the bag in half and used 1 half as the head

Form the structure of the costume with the paper bags

It should start to take shape and look similar to what you want. Now just the decorating

Make it look good!

Cut shapes from the colored paper and glue them on to color the costume. Use the sharpie for details.

Happy Halloween :)
