For Girls (Little Cute Witch): Simple black and white striped t-shirt paired with an orange and black tutu, black socks and black ballerinas. Add a witches' hat from your local thrifty store and home-made broom. For the broom, gather some twigs from nature and wrap them around the bottom of a bamboo stick! Simple and effective!
For Boys (Spooky Skeleton): Black, long-sleeved t-shirt, black trousers and a bit of face paint, make for a quick and inexpensive costume. Dab the entire child's face with white paint using a sponge, then contour the eyes with black face paint using a small lipstick brush. Draw a triangle on the nose in black using the brush again. Then finish off with vertical lines on the mouth with the black paint!
