I’ve mentioned several times (with my tea pot bird bath and my Mad Hatter inspired garden art) how much I love Alice in Wonderland and all the whimsy and madness that comes from this fantastic tale. So when I was costume hunting this year, it made perfect sense to go with Alice! Being who I am, I had to have some fun with my costume, so I made the house that Alice gets stuck in. This is a very quick costumes thanks to a purchased costume, hot glue and Oly-Fun fabric!
Supplies used to make Alice Stuck in Rabbit’s House:
- Oly-Fun Fabric Craft Packs: Hot Fudge, Brick, Slate
- Hot glue gun
- Fabric Marker
- Alice in Wonderland Costume
Step one: Cut the hot fudge Oly-Fun fabric so that it goes from your head to your waist. Cut the top at an angle as pictured to make a triangle for the roof. Make two of these.
Step two: determine where your eyes will fit on the house. Cut a rectangle shape from the front part of the house.
Step three: cut two rectangles of fabric to make the sides of the house.
Step four: cut a long rectangle of fabric to make the roof of the house.
Step five: cut rectangles to make the shutters for the windows. Use the fabric marker to draw in the lines of the shutters.
Step six: cut out a door shape from the fabric. Draw a window and door knob on the fabric.
Step seven: use fabric glue to attach the shutters and door to the front of the house design. Use a hot glue gun to attach flowers near the door. Click HERE to see the fabric flower tutorial.
Step eight: arrange the sides of the house with the right sides facing each other. I use hot glue to attach the pieces to each other. You can also sew them together if you prefer. Flip the house inside out.
Step nine: use hot glue to attach the roof to the top of the house. I did not attach the sides so that my arms could pop through as pictured.
This Alice stuck in rabbit’s house costume is rigid yet very lightweight thanks to the unique fabric. I won’t be sweating or feeling weighed down under this house! And I won’t be trick or treating alone…the Mad Hatter will join me. Check back to learn more about his costume and the DIY wig that’s so easy to make! Have fun crafting and creating costumes for Halloween!
