It’s almost Halloween and I have some costume DIY projects for you!

This week is Modern Girl’s Halloween week, and today I’m excited to show you a Mary Poppins costume idea!
A few months ago my best friend, Leanne, and I launched an online sewing course, The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sewing. We have two courses, Beginner and Intermediate, where we teach you every one of our sewing skills.
Not only will you learn to sew with the Modern Girls Sewing Guide, but you’ll ALSO be able to make Halloween costumes. Our Beginner’s Course covers the basics of sewing and gives you all the skills to make a pretty little A-line skirt, so today we’re showing you how to take that tutorial a little farther and make yourself a Halloween costume.
(Don’t forget to check out Leanne’s gorgeous Tinkerbell costume)!

Hop over to ModernGirlSewing.com and check out the Beginner’s course where you’ll learn all the skills to make yourself this skirt. Then click through after the page break to find the rest of the tutorial to put together this easy DIY Mary Poppins costume.

Other materials for the costume

Materials to make Mary Poppins hat

  • black bowler hat (I bought this one)

  • fake holly berries (also from the floral section at Jo-Ann’s)
  • hot glue
  • floral wire

How to make Mary Poppins hat

  1.  Lay your hat on a flat surface. Cut the individual daisies off of the bunch, leaving 2-3 inch stems.
  2. Determine your placement for your flowers. Use floral wire to create little bundles, and then hot glue into place.
  3. Once the flowers are in place, hot glue the berries into place. And you’re done — so easy!!
