Quick and easy Hallowe'en witch costume

Let’s be honest, there’s a good chance you’ll be stuck, 20 minutes before your Halloween party, without a costume. We challenged Denis to come up with a speedy outfit made from household items

You'll need: Two big sheets of paper; scissors; stapler/simple sewing kit; glue; string/elastic; bin bags, paints and tape.

Witchy, Victorian or vaudevillian, some headgear is a must.
1 Cut a large circle from the paper, and within this, cut a hole the size of your head.
2 Cut the other piece of paper diagonally in half to form two triangles.
3 Staple/sew the corners together. Attach the pointed hat top to the brim with staples.
4 Decorate!

Every freak needs one.
1 Using scissors, cut your preferred shape, then cut out eyeholes.
2 Paint or decorate the mask (comics are good inspiration for this).
3 Poke holes through the sides with scissors, then knot string on either side for a headband.

Fly my pretties, fly!
1 Take the two bin bags, cut them to make flat sheets, then put together with tape to make one big black sheet.
2 Cut out a collar shape from paper, decorate and staple to the binbags.
