The Best Ways to Use Mellanni Bed Sheets for DIY Halloween Costumes
Halloween may have started during ancient times as a way to celebrate the dead, but over the years, it has transformed into a day and night full of fun, excitement, and scares! From Trick or Treating, to eating too much candy, to getting spooked at haunted houses, to celebrating with friends and family, Halloween is incredibly more enjoyable when you have the perfect costume.
If you're looking for some last minute do-it-yourself (DIY) costume ideas, you've come to the right place! As you know, Mellanni Fine Linens provides the most luxuriously affordable bed sheets in the world, but what you might not know is that our bed sheets are perfect for Halloween costumes!
Take a look below at some of the easiest and best ways to incorporate Mellanni in your Halloween costumes this year.
To turn yourself- or your kids- into mummies, all you have to do is find an old white sheet and cut it into long strips. Put on a white top and white leggings to preserve your modesty if the ‘bandages’ start to unravel (!) and then get creative by winding the fabric strips around your head, body and legs until you look the part. Some fake blood can add a great finishing- and creepy- touch.
Over the Shoulder Toga
All you need to transform yourself into an ancient Greek or Roman is a white sheet and some gold braided rope or ribbon. You start by crossing the sheet behind your back, and then you take the two corners and tie them over your shoulder before belting the resulting toga with the gold rope.
Little Red Riding Hood
If you have a red sheet, you can make a wonderful long, red, hooded cloak that- combined with a shop bought wicker basket and a simple dress- makes a fantastic Little Red Riding Hood costume. If you have a friend who is willing to dress as a hungry wolf you’ve got a perfect duo costume too. Here’s a straightforward tutorial showing how to make the sheet fabric into a cloak.
Charlie Brown Ghost
We couldn't do a bedsheet costume DIY list and leave out the traditional ghost costume. However, instead of simply cutting out two holes for your child's eyes, take some inspiration from the Halloween classic flick It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. If you remember, poor Charlie doesn't quite get the hang of cutting out eyes, so his bedsheet winds up with eyeholes all over the place. For your little ghoul, affix black pieces of felt or fleece to get the same look.
Or even Superman
Hey, it's Halloween, you can be whoever you want, even if it's Superman with a pink cape!
