This no-sew magician costume was incredibly easy to make. Even the top hat. And the bow tie. And the wand. All made without any sewing! If you’re looking for a fast and easy magician costume, then this is the perfect craft for you! This costume is made in 3 different parts – the hat, the shirt, and the wand. Each part will take you 30 minutes or less to make!
And even better, I teamed up with over 80 bloggers to share a TON of different costume ideas! It was orchestrated by Jamie Dorobek and her handmade Halloween costume site, Really Awesome Costumes . To help you get ready for Halloween, we’re sharing tons of easy ideas to craft up DIY Halloween costumes for everyone including your pets, family costumes, and even a trunk or treat idea!

2 sizes of plates
Jacket, black pants, black shoes.
We’ll start with the hat. Trace a plate onto the felt. Cut 2. Trace the smaller plate on the inside.
Cut a 6″ tall piece of felt, as long as the circumference of your smaller circle, plus 1 inch. Fringe the bottom, about 3?4″ apart, and about 1″ deep cuts.
Glue the fringe to the inside of one layer of the donut-shaped felt piece.
Glue the other donut piece on top to cover the fringe bits.
Repeat with the top of the hat, using the circles cut out from the inside of the donut shaped piece.
Cover with the second circle, and the hat is done!
For the shirt, draw a line just off-center, and draw on buttons.
Cut a strip of felt, and cut notches to make a bow.
Wrap a smaller strip of felt around the middle, then glue the bow into place at the collar of the shirt.
The wand is easy! Cut a dowel to about 6″, then color with the Sharpie.
Wrap some glitter tape on one end. The wand… and your costume… is done!
