I realized that over the years we have been able to pull off some pretty fun Halloween costumes for the kids, but as things get so busy around holidays with kids I haven’t had a chance to share a lot of them.
So, here it is, circa 2012 our little Jedi’s. I can’t get over how little and cute my little Thomas was. He was only 18 months old at the time. What a cute little Jedi!
DIY Jedi Costumes- You will need: (affiliate links used)
Brown Pants (thrifted)
Brown Leather Belt with buckle (thrifted)
Brown Boots (we borrowed our nieces brown Uggs, and had the other pair)
Light Sabers (we had, Tommy’s we picked up from the Dollar store)
Brown Robe (DIY) – see below
White Tunics (DIY) – see below
For the Brown Jedi Robe, I was able to make them fairly easy using these Jedi Robe and Tunic instructions I found. I laid a large piece of brown fabric on the ground, then folded over double on it’s self. I had my kids lay down to see how long it would need to be. I think I went pretty big on the hood so it would fit over their heads, and be large and wide when it laid on their backs.
The white tunics were pretty easy to replicate (instructions also in this tutorial) with some cream linen type fabric that we just criss crossed and safety pinned in the back and top, then placed the belt over the top to hold it in place.
The sewing part wasn’t too bad! Just have to be able to sew in straight line for the most part!
And, voila! A DIY homemade Jedi Halloween Costume! My favorite costumes are the DIY/ Homemade ones! It’s fun to get creative with a lot of items you already have!
And, weren’t my little Jedi’s so adorable?! They loved being Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, or Anakin. I can’t totally remember! Ha!
So, what are your plans for your kids this Halloween? I think this year we will have two skeletons, and Princess Anna.
Be sure to check back all week, I’ll be sharing some great blast from the past Halloween costumes my kids have worn over the years. So, if you are in need of a last minute DIY costume, I’ve got your back!
