Halloween is just around the corner! I know we just finished the first week of October, but it’s going to be October 31st before you know it! If you don’t already have a costume by now, you might have to whip one up last minute. Luckily for you, your one-stop arts and crafts store has everything you need to make an amazing last-minute costume. CutRateCrafts.com has everything from fabric and washi tape to other cool Halloween items like this pack of embellishments. If you don’t already have a costume, keep reading because I have some great last-minute costume ideas for you!
Number one on my last-minute Halloween costume list is dressing up as college-ruled paper. All you need for this costume is an all-white outfit, red fabric paint, blue fabric paint and a ruler. Thankfully, we have the best fabric paint for the job: SoSoft’s True Blue Fabric Acrylic Paint. SoSoft Fabric Acrylics are super soft fabric paints that are opaque, yet give excellent coverage and washing durability on fabric. They are also permanent and can be brushed, stamped, sponged or stenciled on. They come in different colors for all your craft needs.
Another great idea is to be the classic legend of Medusa, and all you need is a white dress and some plastic snakes. This pack of plastic Snakes from Creatures Inc is made of flexible plastics so you can easily braid them into you hair. Each pack contains eight 9 inch snakes. Depending on how long your hair is or how many plastic snakes you want in your hair, you might have to get more than one pack. You can also paint them gold or green to create a more realistic Medusa look.
If you have never had a Halloween costume involving a cape, then it’s time to whip one up! There are different types of capes you can choose from; if you’re a fan of Superman, then you can make a red cape. If you’re a not fan of Superman, then you can try a hooded witch cape or hooded fairy godmother cape. For the hooded witch cape, you’ll need this Black Kraft Paper Fabric. You will love this rugged paper that looks and feels like leather but sews, cuts and washes just like fabric! It’s supple yet strong enough to use for projects that get tough wear. This package contains ten yards of nineteen inch wide black paper fabric, which could be more than you’ll need for one hooded cape, so you can keep what’s left over for next Halloween.
This last idea is one you can easily get in your home. All you need is a pair of black jeans, a black top and cheap umbrella. What do you need the umbrella for? To make wings for your Batman costume, of course! Yes, a cheap umbrella turned inside out looks like real bat wings. If you wait to create a costume until the very last minute, this tip might just come in handy.
