This is a super simple and unisex Halloween costume - the voodoo doll! At the bare minimum, all you really need is a heart and some pins to attach to your clothes. Anything you do after that is just a bonus!

I decided to go ahead and do makeup, too.

But regardless of what you do, a voodoo doll costume is a great last minute idea for Halloween. It'll only take a couple hours to throw together - even less if you take some shortcuts. :D

Step 1: What you'll need:

Picture of What you'll need:
  • red felt
  • wire
  • foam balls
  • hot glue gun
  • red paint
  • painbrush
  • small safety pins (for attaching the heart)
Depending on how thick your wire is, you may need to use foam craft sheets - I used a really thick wire, so I stuck it into craft foam to anchor it. For wire that's 14 gauge or less, you'll be able to bend it and then wind it inside the two felt pieces and can skip the foam all together. :D

You might also want some face paints. I really recommend Ben Nye brand paints - the black and red are that brand and they were great to work with! 

Step 2: Paint the foam balls

Should just take a couple coats. If you're in a rush you can use a hairdryer on low to help speed it up. :D

Step 3: Cut out some hearts

Pretend you're in elementary school! Fold a sheet of paper in half and draw the best heart you can. Cut it out of the paper and figure out if the size is right for you. I had to bring it down in size twice.

Once the size is right, cut it out of both pieces of felt.
