Optional: Face Paint 
Directions: cut out leaves of varied colors or cut fabric craft leaves from bunch (leaving a little stem),

turn t-shirt inside out,

hot glue leaves to shirt on front,

Comments: this costume cost was $7 for craft leaves, $0 for t-shirt, $0 for safety pins (used what i had on hand)and $2 for the hot glue sticks. It still hangs nicely in the closet waiting for another halloween it will fit for a few years and fit various children if you make it big and the safety pins just need to be moved to fit the child
