Playing Card 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 whatever playing card you like.

Materials Needed:

  • 2 Large Pieces of White Poster Board
  • Markers, Crayons, or Paint
  • 2-inch Thick Elastic or Ribbon
  • Stapler

Get a deck of cards and find the card you want to be. Use that as a model to draw the card out on one side of both pieces of poster board. Once your card is drawn, cut 2 pieces of elastic or ribbon to fit over your shoulders. You will be stapling the ribbon or elastic to the poster board so one card hangs in front of you and the other hangs in the back.
