The Halloween aisles may be brimming with witch hats, brooms, capes, and more—and depending on how much time you have, store-bought costumes can be worth the splurge. But if you’re feeling crafty, it’s actually quite easy to concoct a magical homemade costume yourself.

Get as ambitious as you want when making a witch costume for toddlers or girls. Fashion a witch hat using felt and hot glue, and craft a broomstick by tying twigs and straw to a stick with twine. Tailor the look to the type of witch you want, whether one of the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus, Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, or The Wizard of Oz‘s Wicked Witch of the West or Glinda the Good Witch.

Throwing together a last-minute look? Pull a black dress out of the closet, buy inexpensive accessories, and call it a day. She’ll be bewitching either way!

Comfort is key when dressing your toddler as a witch for Halloween. We’re talking tights, boots, and a long-sleeve shirt. It can get cold by October 31! Add a tutu and witch hat (homemade or store-bought) to get her excited for what’s likely her first time trick-or-treating. Easy as that—save your energy for other things, mama!

Show off her spellbinding style and personality with a witch costume that’s uniquely her. Start with a black dress for the base—she probably has one hanging in her closet—then ask her how she’d like to accessorize. Perhaps with feather boa cuffs (cut one apart and sew for simple bracelets), a wide belt, and even a touch of fun face paint or makeup?
