I have so enjoyed sharing with you Halloween ideas for your dolls, and as this is my last post before Halloween I wanted to share with you another fun no sew costume you can make for your dolls with items found at the dollar store.
To make your own No Sew Fuzzy Green Alien Costume you will need:
- A pair of fuzzy socks from your dollar store. I chose fuzzy green but you can make any color alien you would like
- Two small Styrofoam Balls
- Two pipe cleaners (I used silver)
- A black marker
Step 1– Open your sock package and lay out your sock beside your doll.
Step 2– Open the sock with the toe section at your dolls feet and slide on the sock over her feet.
Step 3– Pull away a small ½ inch section of the sock just above the toe seam from your dolls toes and use the scissors to make a small snip in the sock.
Step 4– Repeat Step 3 on the opposite side.
Step 5- Put your dolls feet through the holes you created.
Step 6- Pull the sock up to your dolls neck area and then pull the sock out about 1 inch down from the top of the sock on one side around the top of your dolls shoulder.
Step 7- Make a snip in the sock, repeat on the other side and slide your dolls arms through the holes you just made. Your body suit is complete.
Step 8– Make your dolls Alien Eyes by bending one of your pipe cleaners in half. Use your scissors and cut the pipe cleaner in half.
Step 9– Push on one of the Styrofoam balls on to each of the pipe cleaner pieces
Step 10- Use the other pipe cleaner to create a circle, join then ends and twist them into each other. Place the circle on your dolls head to make sure it fits.
Step 11– Remove the circle from your dolls head and attach the eyes. Twist the bottom of the pipe cleaner around the circle so that it stands up, repeat on the other eye.
Step 12– Use your black marker to draw a pupil on each eye ball. Place the Alien Eyes on your dolls head and you are ready to go!
You can embellish your costume any way you like you could add wings, steamers, a belt, the sky is the limit! I hope you enjoyed today’s craft. Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
Today I used my Springfield Doll Olivia.
I look forward to sharing more fun ideas with you next Friday.
