Wind-up Doll: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

Forget buying a costume! For me, the best part about dressing up for Halloween is making your costume yourself! Here’s a super easy DIY and chances are you have most or all of these things already! Here we go...

 

This look is selfie worthy for sure!

Ok so first things first, you’re going to have to make the wind-up key! It’s fairly simple. You’ll need: an empty paper towel roll, a piece of construction paper or cardboard, ribbon, aluminum foil, and some kind of glue {hot glue is best since it dries instantly!}.

Here’s a little peek at the makeup and supplies you’ll need. 

 

1. Cut a figure 8 out of the paper. Then cut out smaller circles in each end, so it looks like a giant number 8!

2. Cover the 8 and the paper towel roll in foil.  

3. Hot glue them together to make the key shape. 

4. Punch a hole on each side of the base of the paper towel role and thread the ribbon through.  

5. Be sure to cut the ribbon long enough to wrap around your waist and tie a bow!  

6. Side note: depending on the materials you use, the key may be heavy and sag after a while. If it does, you can tie ribbon or fishing wire to the key and attach it to your straps or shoulders to distribute the weight.

Here’s what the key should look like! Be sure to put on your favorite short length dress! Bonus points if you have knee highs!

Now for the makeup...

Use black eyeliner and draw “marionette” lines around your mouth connecting the corner of your lips to your chin.

Bold bright lips is key! Think pink!

Circular bright blush finishes off the doll vibe! As far as the rest of your makeup goes, just do it the way you’re comfortable doing! Add lashes for extra flutter if you’re feeling bold! 

 

 

Here’s the final look! So fun right?! Easy peasy DIY.
