It's no joke: You can pull together this Halloween clown costume in a flash with a few homemade accessories.
• Hot-glue gun
• Safety pin
• Colorful dress
• Striped socks
• Long-sleeve white T-shirt
• White gloves
• Clown makeup
• Red clown nose
1. For flower pin: Draw flower shapes in various sizes on felt. Cut out. Stack two or three flower shapes together, graduated from large to small, and adhere all with glue. Glue a pom-pom to center. Glue safety pin to back of flower.
2. For pom-pom jewelry: Cut a strip of felt, about ¾″ wide and long enough to wrap around neck or wrist with extra left over to tie. Glue pom-poms in place.
3. For hair band: Cut a strip of felt long enough to wrap around head; glue on pom-poms. Cut a piece of tulle about 12″ wide and 10″ longer than felt (so it will tie around head). Leaving 5″ at both ends of tulle, wrap pom-pom strip around tulle, gluing it as you go.
