I’ve got all kinds of cute baby costumes brewing for my sweet Max baby this Halloween! First up, a DIY Koala bear costume! This one is easy peasy, y’all! And it all started with a grey onesie and grey pants. (Here are 18 more DIY cute baby costumes that all started with a onesie!)
Here’s what you need:
- Grey onesie
- Grey pants with footies (His are from Baby Gap.)
- Grey hat
- Black, grey, and white felt
- Safety pins
- Koala bear mask template
- sewing machine or a thread and needle
My Poppet has a really cute Koala mask that you can print and use to make this piece of the costume for free! I utilized her template, but decided not to make it out of cardboard since I wanted to attach it to a hat that would cover Maxwell’s forehead. He’s a pretty easy going baby, but I’m pretty sure a cardboard mask covering half of his face would be a no go! After I printed out her template, I traced it with a sharpie onto grey felt and cut it out.
I used her pattern to cut the rest of the nose, ears, and eyes out of felt too. I decided to make the ears a little bigger and used white and a darker grey felt.
I attached all of the Koala bear mask pieces with just a needle and thread. I always save those hotel sewing kits for small projects like this!
Then, I attached the mask to the grey hat with safety pins. Like this…
I cut the Koala paws out of black felt and safety pinned then to the feet of the pants. I did the same thing with the white felt oval on the belly! And here’s Maxwell sporting his handmade Koala costume…
And here’s my sweet little koala bear enjoying a little eucalyptus!

Your little one can’t talk yet but we’re sure he or she is great when it comes to making strange sounds like a real koala. It’s the perfect costume for moms who want “koala-ty” time with their babies on Halloween!
