DIY Christmas Play Costumes

It’s that time of year again, where schools and nurseries start to plan their Christmas plays, which can only mean one thing… COSTUMES!

It’s a word that can fill many parents with dread! And it usually brings up a couple of questions; do you buy one from the supermarkets or online? Or do you try to sew and stick something together from scratch?


So, here at Frugi HQwe’ve decided to give ourselves a bit of a challenge and create some classic Christmas characters using Frugi clothing with accessories that we could make or with bits and bobs that we already had at home stashed away in Christmas boxes!



Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer:


Julia, one of our fab Marketing Coordinators, was given the task of creating a Reindeer outfit for her little girl!


She used the gorgeous Friendly Face Knitted Hat with our Jump About Jumper to create her costume and added a little red nose as a perfect finishing touch!


You could layer the jumper over our Campfire coloured Kneepatch Crawlers or our Callum Slim Cords for a super cosy costume.


We also thought that the Wilf Wraparound Applique Top would work brilliantly too.


How adorable is this little Reindeer? ❤️




Cheeky Elves:

Lisa and Katy, from our Ecommerce department, had the challenge of creating a couple of Santa’s little helpers – Elves!


Lisa put together an outfit for her little one using our Meadow Green Favourite Long Sleeve Tee and our Campfire coloured Ripstop Combats with a fab elfs hat that she had lying around. She even created a collar out of some red fabric and tucked it into the top of the t-shirt.


Katy made a costume for her youngest niece by putting our Mars Red Favourite Long Sleeve Tee and Christmas Stars Little Norah Tights under our Meadow Green Tilly Cord Dress. She then popped a little Christmas headband on and drew on some little red rosy cheeks to finish off.

What a couple of cheeky little elves! ?



Christmas Star:



Katy also created a second costume for her older niece, this time she had the task of creating a Christmas Star costume!


She used our gorgeous Rita Reversible Dress as the navy nepp design made a beautiful starry sky backdrop!


Katy then created the star headpiece out of a large sheet of cardboard covered in starry wrapping paper with some twinkly fairy lights around the outside.

This costume would look fab with our Christmas Fairisle Norah Tights layered underneath, perfect for that added star factor!


Is this the star of the show? ?





Santa Claus:

Emily from our social team dressed up her little boy Leo (3) as a mini Santa Claus! With a homemade cotton wool beard, Santa hat and our Noel Cord Outfit Leo loved being a mini St Nick!


He even delivered a few early Christmas pressies from his Frugi Santa Sack!


What a jolly looking Father Christmas! ?


How do you think we did? Have you got a favourite? Let us know in the comments below!
