The pictures on this page have been shared to assist in helping you find inspiration in creating a fun and exciting costume that your child will absolutely love. Below, you will find the instructions on how to create a simple bear costume:

Instructions for a Simple Homemade Bear Costume

Items Needed:
  • A hooded sweat suit that is solid in color
  • Craft foam
  • Acrylic paint
  • A paint brush
  • Faux fur
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors

Step 1: The first step to creating homemade bear costumes is to make the decision as to whether the costume will reflect a popular bear displayed on a movie or a cartoon, or a realistic-type bear.

Step 2: Now, a hooded sweat suit that is solid in color should be purchased. You may purchase any color, but for realistic-type bears, you will want to choose the colors of brown, black, gray or white.

Step 3: Once you have the hooded sweat suit, you should use the paint to create a contrasting belly on the front of the costume.

Step 4: Once the belly is painted on the costume, you will need to create ears. You should do this by cutting pieces from your craft foam that look like bear ears and gluing those pieces onto the top of the hood of the sweat shirt.

Step 5: Now, you should use the faux fur to create a small tail. Once you have created the tail, simply pin it on to the backside of the sweat pants in the buttocks region.

Step 6: You may use the paint that you used to color the belly to paint the face so that the costume appears more realistic.

As you can see, it is very simple to create a teddy bear costume. This is evident through the pictures that we have shared on this page and the instructions that we have included on creating a basic bear costume.
