nativity play costumes

It’s that time of the year again… Brace yourselves, we’re going to use the “C” word…

Christmas is coming!

 

And that can only mean one thing: it’s nativity play season!

When we were kids you could get away with a net curtain poncho for an angel or mum’s tea towel shoved over your head for a shepherd – but these days, nativity play costumes are all together more professional!

You can of course buy a costume – but what about the competitive parent in you, who wants your child to turn up for the play in a perfect, bespoke costume hand-made by their loving parent?

That competitive parent is currently wishing they’d learned to sew, right? Wishing your crafting skills were Pinterest-worthy? Don’t panic! Fancy Dress Ball is here to help! We’ve scoured the Web to find you some simple nativity costume tutorials to help you to fulfill your inner crafty (competitive) parent…

Shepherd

Back in the day, our mums would put us in a long, weird dress thing they just happened to have in the cupboard (why??), shove a clean tea towel on our heads and shove us into the line-up. Not any more!

Here’s a great tutorial to show you how to make a shepherd headdress out of an old pillowcase or other piece of material.

And this thrifty mum managed to make an entire shepherd outfit for less than £2.50!

Does your shepherd need a beard?

Sheep

Sometimes the shepherds bring a sheep with them, right?

This costume looks like brilliant fun to make!

Angel

Here’s how to make an angel costume from an old pillow case.

These wings are a little tricky, but also probably more comfortable for your little angel to wear/fly in.

Or we love these wings made with coffee filters!

And of course, all angels need a halo!

Mary

Here’s a super easy tutorial for a no-sew Mary costume

Joseph

We love this quick and easy Joseph costume

3 Kings/Wise Men

The wise men wore crowns; here’s a great tutorial!

And here’s a tutorial for the rest of the costume

 

And finally…

This article has tutorials for no less than eight nativity costumes!

 

Are your children in the nativity play this year? We’d love to see some photos of your home-made creations!
