Quick and Easy Monsters, Inc. Costumes

by Beth Watson

I can’t believe that Halloween is right around the corner! And if your kids are like my nieces and nephew they not only change their minds everyday as to what they want to be for Halloween, but they also like to dress up ALL THE TIME! These quick and easy Monsters, Inc. costumes are a great project to create with the kids in an afternoon and will satisfy their need for dress up time!

Here’s What You Will Need:

  • Kunin ® Classicfelt™ 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Black, Neon Blue, Lagoon and Coral Red
  • Kunin ® Classicfelt™ 36” x 36” Craft Cuts – White
  • T-shirts – Bright Green and Bright Blue
  • Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue
  • Pencil; Eraser; Permanent Marker Black; Stabilo Aquarellable Pencil White; Scissors; Large Piece of Cardboard

Here’s How to Make it

Step One:
Download patterns KUNIN BLUE MONSTER PATTERNS & KUNIN GREEN MONSTER PATTERNS and print. Cut out patterns with scissors. Trace on Kunin® Classicfelt™ according to instructions on pattern sheets. Use a permanent black marker to trace on the lighter colored felt and the Aquarellable white pencil to trace on the darker colored felt.

TIP: Remember to cut INSIDE the lines for a neat and clean finished project.

Step Two:
Lay the bright blue t-shirt out on a flat surface. Slide a piece of cardboard between the front and back of the t-shirt. This will prevent the shirt from accidentally getting glued together (don’t ask me how I know this, just trust me!) Place all of the felt pieces on the t-shirt until you are pleased with the composition.

Step Three:
Individually flip each piece over, apply glue and attach to shirt. Press gently, not firmly. You want to attach the felt to the shirt, but not allow any glue to seep through the felt.

Step Four:
Repeat the tracing, cutting and gluing steps from above with the bright green t-shirt.

I hope you will use my quick and easy monster costumes as a jumping off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity to create some super cute Halloween costumes! Maybe some Minions or Emjois might be in my future!

Felt is an easy, versatile and forgiving medium which allows you to create affordable but trendy projects whether you are a beginner or an expert crafter!

You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin® ClassicfeltKunin® Premiumfelt and ShaggiChic non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.

    1. Yes they can be washed on gentle, cold water and hung to dry. A fabric glue like Fabri-tac will wash very well.
