Whatever you dressed up as for Halloween, whether it was Elsa from Frozen, a Warrior or Pheasant Girl, you can repurpose the material from the fabric to add festive decoration to your Thanksgiving table or create a Holiday wreath.
Watch, this pheasant costume will be transformed in to a focal point thanksgiving centerpiece!
What you’ll need scissors, glue gun, straight pins, costume fabric, Styrofoam circle form and other embellishments you can buy at a craft store. Use what you already have at home to add to the look or even nab some fresh leaves from outside. As they change colors this time of year they are perfect to add to your creation.
First cut the costume material into several strips.
Start wrapping and weaving the fabric strips to the Styrofoam form. You can attach the end by pinning them into the Styrofoam or gluing them in. There is no right or wrong way to wrap the fabric just start pinning and gluing to create a movement in the fabric. Use different colors and different widths of material on the form.
You can add different embellishments like leaves, acorns; sparkles ball ornaments or whatever you want! Let your creative juices flow! Or have another glass of wine… that helps too!
This Thanksgiving centerpiece was made from a Pheasant Halloween costume! I’ll use it around the candy corn candle vase on my Thanksgiving table!
And the Holiday wreath is made of fabric from the Elsa costume from the movie Frozen.
It’s easy to recycle, reuse and repurpose your old Halloween costumes and make them last well into the holiday season.
