Hi friends! Do you need a costume you can whip up in a flash? How about a comfy costume that you can wear over leggings and a turtleneck if the weather is cold? Today I have you covered with a DIY Cave Girl costume!
You can make this costume and accesories in an evening for about $10-$20 depending on what you have around the house.

Here is what I used to make the Cave-Girl Costume:
Fabric: 2 yards of 60″ wide animal print fleece
Sewing machine and thread (optional-see tie method in the video)
For footwear you can wear boots or sandals
For the necklace:
18″ for tiger-tail wire
4 crimp beads
Small jasper chip beads
Larger stone nugget beads
Assorted dagger shaped plastic beads
Small lobster clasp
For the torch:
Tissue paper in yellow, orange and red
Wrapping paper tube
Woodgrain shelf liner (I added this over the tube off camera)
A small flashlight to pop in the end of the tube to make it glow.
For the “Bone” bow:
1 Spring hair clip
Plaster bone (made with a bone shaped ice cube tray from the Dollar Tree and plaster of Paris)
This project was fun to make. Please refer to the step by step video tutorial to learn how to make your own costume. Now I can relax knowing I will not have to come up with a Halloween costume at the last minute…unless I change my mind LOL! Happy crafting!
