Free-N-Fun Halloween


Candy Shop Owner Costume


  • Plain white apron
  • Color your own white bowtie
  • Sequins
  • Red glitter paint
  • Red fabric paint
  • Large white rectangular piece of paper
  • Tape
  • Candy
  • White collared shirt
  • Black trousers
  • Black dress shoes



  1. Using either a stencil or painter’s tape, mark out stripes about 1.5” on the apron.
  2. Paint the areas without tape with the red fabric paint and let dry. This may take a few coats. When dry, remove the tape and fill the pockets with candy of choice.


  1. Place the paper on the work surface. Arrange the paper so the longer sides of the rectangle are horizontal. Consider practicing with newspaper before using any craft paper.
  2. Fan fold the paper every 2”. Start at the top of the paper and fan fold down until there are about 3” left at the bottom.
  3. Fold the bottom of the paper up 3” to overlap the 2” folds you made. Cut off the overlapping paper.
  4. Insert one end of the paper into the other about 1/2” and tape or staple in place. This will be the hat band.
  5. Open the hat up slowly. The folds will begin to come undone creating the top of the hat.
  6. Decorate the hat with crayons, markers or paint.
