Tick-tock ... That's the Halloween Clock!

October 21, 2012

Alrighty, people. We're down to the wire. We're less than a week away from the point that Halloween celebrations kick into high gear. If you haven't gotten a costume together yet, you might be in a panic. But have no fear! We have had loads of quick-project blog posts throughout the years, and we've pulled several of them together to help you prepare in a hurry.


Do you have a tiny goblin, fairy or princess in your house? The ideal Halloween costume pieces for kids are the ones that can go into the dress-up and pretend trunk after the candy questing is complete.

Pull together a lightning-quick skirt worthy of any royal ball with Tara's No-sew Tutu project.

Or, put together a Kids Halloween Mask that will see loads of play time well past Halloween.

Even kids-at-heart need costumes as fab as those the little ones wear. The next several projects work for kids or adults, and all whip up in a jiffy.

Whether you're a hero, a villain or a historical figure, every outfit could use a good cape. Here's a quick double-layered version that needs no pattern -- just a yardstick and marker: Last-minute Capes.

If you want to add a little drama to your outfit, you can make any of these Halloween Hair Accessories in just a few minutes' time.

We've also got free pattern downloads to create spellbinding witch couture. A multi-layered Witch's Capelet will help keep the chill off witches on the go!

The perfect chapeau is essential for Halloween, and the Hot Patterns Bad Witch/Good Witch Hat and Fascinator is ideal for crafting an original hat to match your outfit.

Last, but certainly not least, is a fantastic -- and fantastically fast! -- project sheet for creating Costumes on a Stick. These are great for those times when a full costume is impractical, but you still want to get in on the Halloween fun.

Are you feeling ready to bang out a few key pieces to make a memorable Halloween ensemble? We can't wait to see what you come up with!
