Are you looking for an easy no sew DIY Winner the Pooh costume? We did one recently and it was a huge hit!
Halloween is around the corner, and we couldn’t be any more happier. Thankfully, living here in Southern California there are a lot of different events happening around the season, so it’s always nice to have more than one costume ready to go.
For our Disneyland trip, we love to get in the spirit of things with Disney-inspired Halloween costumes, like the Winnie the Pooh costume DIY I made… in under five minutes.
This DIY costume is great for anybody who is working within a budget, is tight on time, and loves Winnie the Pooh.
The “Pooh” costume is kid-friendly (they could probably make it), fast, and super easy. It’s a fun and adorable costume to make and to wear. Plus… you could probably make a matching costume for you too.
When it comes to DIY costumes, you should always try shopping at thrift stores first. You never want to spend a lot of money and with this costume, you could probably spend less than $5 dollars.
However, if you don’t have time to go to the thrift store and search, you can always go to Target, Walmart, or any store that sells solid color clothing with no design or logo showing.
We got our red shirt for 99 cents and the leggings for $2 at the thrift store. You can find yellow fabric paint at any arts and crafts stores. We suggest getting the smallest size bottle because you won’t use too much.
DIY Winnie the Pooh Costume
To make this costume, just write “Pooh” onto a solid red shirt with the yellow fabric paint. Make sure to put something underneath the shirt just in case the paint seeps through the shirt.
We used cardboard, but you can use anything like a notebook, paper, magazine,etc. Remember… the letters don’t have to be perfect. It’s supposed to look like Pooh wrote it himself. Let it dry overnight.
If you need the costume faster than that, use a blow dryer to dry the paint. Let us know if you make this costume – we’d love to see it! Have a Honeyful halloween!!!
p.s. If you’re totally not into the DIY thing, you can always get this Winnie the Pooh costume on Amazon. LOL
Once you have your Winnie the Pooh costume you’ll want to accessorize it with a hunny bucket so you can get all the candy!
DIY Winnie The Pooh Hunny Bucket
- yellow felt
- yellow ribbon
- Yellow and brown paint
- Paint brush
- Glue gun and glue sticks
This DIY Hunny bucket was very simple to assemble, grab any bucket you may have or find at the 99cent store.
Make sure to have a flat surface to work on and anything to cover the area so nothing gets damaged with a spillage.
Start painting your bucket only on the outside brown, we didn’t have the brown we wanted to paint so we added white paint to make it a bit lighter.
After that drys up, grab your yellow paint and write the words HUNNY on your bucket. The lettering doesn’t have to be perfect.
Grab your yellow ribbon and start wrapping it around the handle of the bucket. I used the glue gun to keep it secure in some spots of the handle.
We purchased the felt material at Daiso, but if you don’t have one near you, you can always go to the nearest craft store and purchase it there.
You can use a pencil to outline the honey shape on the felt, once you have your desire shape, start cutting and you’ll glue this on the rim of the bucket. With the extra material of the felt, drew bees and cut them out. I added them to the bucket. This bucket went perfectly with our DIY Winnie the Pooh costume.
We hope you’ll give this easy Winnie the Pooh handmade costume a try!
