Here’s an easy and inexpensive idea for a Halloween costume. My friend Fergi came across a few vintage hand puppets at a thrift store and knew they’d be the perfect accessory for Mr. Rogers. The idea is great for little kids who aren’t that excited about dressing up yet – and you can probably use clothing items they already have in their closet. I’ve found that Etsy and Ebay have vintage puppets for sale – or you could always take a chance with your local Goodwill. See all our Homemade Halloween Costumes right here.
Materials Needed: Vintage Hand Puppets (can be found on Etsy and Ebay), Clip-On Tie, and a Cardigan Sweater. Mr. Rogers also changes into sneakers at the beginning of the show, so we’d recommend wearing them (with slacks if possible!)
