Halloween is the season for scary monsters! But why spend money on the perfect creepy costume when your child can easily transform into a Werewolf with items around the house. No full moon required.

Halloween How-To: Homemade Werewolf Costume

Difficulty: 2 out of 4 pumpkins

Materials & Tools

Teddy bears

Scissors

Kid Gloves

Dark pair of Mom's socks

Headband

Krazy Glue or glue gun

Dark long sleeved shirt

Plaid shirt (short or long sleeved)

Jeans

Hairspray

Face makeup or bronzer

Black eyeliner

Step 1: Create Werewolf Fur

Go into attic/kids closets and find UNUSED/DISGARDED teddy bears/brown furry stuffed animals (important note: this should be a furry friend your child won't miss when you cut them to shreds). Cut the ears off and cut 2 squares and 2 rectangles out of the teddy bear fur.

Step 2: Make Hand Paws

Cut fingers off of gloves. Glue 1 fur square to each glove.

Step 3: Make Foot Paws

Glue 1 fur rectangle to the top of the foot of each sock.

Step 4: Make Ears

Trim the fur from the ears of the teddy bears so they are shaped more like triangles. Glue to headband.

Step 5: Get Dressed

Put on turtleneck first, then the plaid shirt over it -- if long sleeved, rolls sleeves up. Put on jeans -- roll up legs a few times. Put on shoes -- put the sock/foot paws over the shoes. Put on gloves/hand paws.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

If hair is long enough, tease/brush it out and hairspray in place. Cover your child's face in brown face makeup or bronzer. Draw on nose with black eyeliner. Put on the ears
