Fuzzy Fiends

To turn your little one into the most cuddly monster on the block, start with a solid-color base layer and add a crafted fur belly, leg- and arm-warmers, and paw covers. Top it off with a knitted cap adorned with paper horns and felt ears.

Snow Monster

With feather-fringe "fur" and a cartoon-like face, this costume makes the Abominable Snowman downright snuggly. Mittens and a hooded sweatshirt will keep your kiddie warm while you're trick-or-treating!

Girly Ghoul

Got a girl who wants to be a princess every year? A pink monster might be just the thing to break her royal streak. Top a leotard and tights with a homemade tutu, headband, and fiendish scarf.

Don’t be scared by all of the layers—it’s super easy to make this too-cute skirt.
