Toddler Halloween Costume DIY : 60s Hippie Flower Child

After debating a few ideas for Riley’s Halloween costume this year, I decided on a late 60s hippie flower child Woodstock concert-goer vibe.  I don’t have a solid reason why, but it seemed like a perfectly cute concept and I love anything vintage! I had a few other ideas – Madeline (which she can still do when she’s a little older) and a funny one – dress her as a pickle, but they seemed like a bit more work. I had to rush to pull a costume together because our campground was celebrating Halloween early before they close up for the season.

I love what I came up with and this is easy for anyone to put together!

So here’s how to put this together yourself! For the main outfit I made a boho style tunic, found a pair of flare jeans at Crazy8, and added some fringe from Joann’s Fabric Store to it. I found the pattern to make the top here on Etsy: Tunic Pattern. It’s not the easiest sewing pattern but you will be super proud when you finished. I normally refer to fabric.com, but this print is no longer available there but I found some Etsy. It’s the perfect 60s ‘vintage bed sheet’ print!  (Sewing tutorial and template for the vintage camper pillow are coming soon!)

But don’t despair, if you don’t want to make the top, Osh Kosh’s Genuine Kids line for Target has tons of boho styles available right now and will work more than perfectly for this outfit. Check out some of the cute options below.

For the accessories I got a boho headband from Icing which was on clearance and I picked up the peace sign necklace and cute aviator sunglasses (which she refused to wear) from Claire’s. The sandals Riley is wearing are from Target this past summer, but they still have a few on sale including these with fringe!

The look could be complete there or if you have a natural-looking mini guitar or ukulele around, it would be the perfect extra finishing touch. The ukulele Riley’s holding was super reasonably priced from Amazon, and sounds great. She loved playing with it and I’m hoping to get her into guitar lessons eventually so this will be a nice stepping stone instrument for her.

I loved how this all came together and couldn’t resist posting a few more shots. If you’re wondering about the camera, that is my Fuji Instax Mini 90. I love it!! Riley finds it pretty cool too.
