Basket Full Of Laundry Costume

Free Halloween Costume Pattern and Instructions


Find out how to make this simple yet creative Halloween costume. Follow these directions and you can dress up as a basket full of dirty laundry.

Materials Needed:

  • Plastic Laundry Basket
  • Clothesline
  • Clothes
  • Clothespins and/or Safety Pins

Buy the cheapest, lightest laundry basket you can find. Cut a circle out of the bottom, just big enough for your body to fit through. Cut 2 piece of clothes line to tie onto the laundry basket to act as suspenders, make them just long enough so the top of the basket hits just about your waist. Hang 'dirty' clothes on the basket and yourself, using clothespins and/or safety pins to hold them in place.

Ideas from Sheryl Seagull: "Tie empty bottles or boxes to laundry basket. Use an empty detergent box or pillow case as a candy collector."
