This low-cost DIY costume idea is ideal for anyone in need for a quick and easy outfit for Halloween. And it’s perfect for kids and grown-ups alike!

How to make a DIY pumpkin costume
What you need
- Orange sweater/t-shirt
- Black material (from an old sheet, pillowcase or t-shirt)
- VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics Tape (in black)
- VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics Ovals (in black)
- Black leggings/trousers
What to do
Making this no-sew pumpkin costume is incredibly easy – you can honestly have the whole thing finished in 15 minutes! Although we’d recommend making your costume the night before you need it to give the adhesive on the fabric tape time to dry.
To get started, assemble everything you need including a pack of VELCRO® Brand Fabric Tape and Ovals. You might already have everything else lying around at home, making this a great option for a cheap Halloween costume idea.
Once you have everything you need, take your black material and draw on the shape of the pumpkin face that you want and cut it out.
Then start sticking the face onto the orange sweater. You’ll need three VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics Ovals per eye and three strips of VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics Tape for the mouth.
This is where you’ll see your homemade pumpkin costume finally come together!
Once you’ve stuck the whole face onto the sweater, that’s it! Your no-sew pumpkin costume is finished and ready for Halloween! Complete the look with black pants or leggings and some novelty pumpkin accessories!
