My second son defiantly beats to his own drum. For Halloween this year he wanted to be the “devil”. I was not totally comfy with his choice so I sent him back to the “thinking board”. After much deliberation I finally convinced him to be a Snake Charmer. He has a small collection of stuffed snakes he got from the zoo and he enjoys teasing his sister with them. This is by far the easiest costume. It only took and hour to put together! Here how I did it.
scarf with tassels ( Go buy yourself a new scarf and let your sone use it for the day. Its a win win!
(2) $1 store baskets
$1 store whistle or flute
1.5 yards cheap cotton fabric
Most of his costume is pretty self explanatory For the snake basket I glues the 2 baskets together. I cut the bottom of the top basket off so the snake could go inside.I also glued a piece of ribbon around the basket seams and the top of the basket.
I use a 1 foot piece of fishing line and tied one end to the whistle and the other to the snake. When they play and move the flute the snake will move too.
For the Turban I watched a few you tube videos to learn how to wrap and tie it.
So that’s it. Super simple. If you ever need a quick costume you can’t go wrong with this one. Happy Halloween!
