How to Make A Minnie Mouse Tutu: DIY Halloween Costume

Here's a quick and easy Halloween costume if you are short on time.  It truly is no-fail, but turns out absolutely adorable!!  Your Minnie Mouse lover will love having her own Minnie Mouse Tutu!   Just add a few other pieces picked up online or a local store, and you've got a simple Minnie Mouse Costume.

I don't have a tutorial for the tutu itself-- I searched online and there are a great many blogs that have tutorials for that... or I am sure there are videos on You Tube, too.

DIY Minnie Mouse Halloween Costume

For the tutu itself, you'll need:
{affiliate links included for your convenience}
red tulle
no-roll elastic
sewing machine/ needle thread (to sew the elastic together)
Once you have your tutu done, I simply added circles of white felt.

I purchased a sheet of soft adhesive felt from Hobby Lobby, made circle patterns using a top of a spice jar, cut them out, and randomly stuck them on the tutu!  Easy enough!  The felt can be taken off, and reapplied if you need to move them around-- or after Halloween, they can be taken off completely and you'll have yourself a plain red tutu do re-use for Christmas!
To complete the Minnie look you'll need Minnie ears , black shirt, black leggings, and yellow shoes!

For the yellow shoes, I purchased a pair of white fabric shoes from Hobby Lobby (of course!) and painted them with yellow fabric paint.
{You can obviously find many of these craft materials at another craft store, we chose Hobby Lobby because it is the closest}

The real Minnie Mouse has some competition this year!

Are your kiddos costumes all made and./or bought for Halloween?!  It's just a few short days away!
