Clowning Around with Cool Homemade Clown Costumes for the Family



I was inspired by a photo I found of a little girl dressed like a hobo/clown. I bought my daughter’s tutu and then figured out how to make mine. I put random patches on the pants. My husband’s pants were ten sizes to big for him and had a bulls eye on the seat of them. I cut up socks to make the arm warmers.

As far as everything else, our inner clown just kinda came out and everything just fell into place. This has so far been my favorite costume. It was a lot of fun and most of all comfortable. My husband had a clown horn that got a lot of reaction out of people (not a good reaction from me after a whole night of hearing it). One lady said she could here the clowns coming and couldn’t wait! I also used the picture for our Christmas card that year. It still puts a smile on my face every time I look at it.
