All Saints Day costumes made easy

November will be here before you know it. Here are a few easy (no sew!) costumes for your All Saints Day festivities!

Altar boy/Novice

Saints: Aloysius Gonzaga, John Berchmans, Stanislaus Kostka
Costume: adult black turtleneck plus surplice (A white collarless blouse worn with the buttons in the back would work too)
Additional props: lilies, crucifix, book, rosary, baby doll (Christ Child)


Saints who were Bishops; Saints who were Cardinals; Saints who were Popes

Costume: cassock: adult band collared shirt (dyed magenta for bishops or red for cardinals); surplice: round lace tablecloth with hole cut for head (the one pictured is a few antimacassars safety pinned together); pectoral cross, knitted or crocheted zuchetto (just a circle)
