Today I am sharing this adorable Branch inspired costume. This costume is an easy sew (and has a little help wit some hot glue) that makes it come together quickly. Honestly the longest part of the tutorial is cutting out the strips of leaves.
I used a cheap grey t shirt I got at the hobby store and I used Jess’s toddler shorts tutorial (available here) and added a few green squares to it. Add the awesome troll hair and the vest and you have an easy (but awesome looking) costume.
For this project you will need:
Green felt (for amount see below for your size)
Fleece Fun’s free pattern
Brown shorts (there is a free pattern here)
Troll hair wig ( you can get a tutorial here)

You can find instructions on how to assemble the pattern here.
Step 1 – Cut out the following
On folded fabric cut out the front so you have 2.
Step 2 – Sew the vest
Using a quarter inch seam allowance sew the shoulder tops and the sides of the vest.
Step 3 – glue on the rows of leaves
Using the hot glue gun glue the leave rows.
If the row is longer than the vest trim of the edge to match the edge of the vest.
Trim down any leaves that don’t line up with the vest outline.
To make the leaves stick out a little more brunch up against them to make them flare out.
Step 4 – make the shorts
Cut out some green squares and glue them to the shorts to make them look like the costume. You’re finished with the Branch costume trolls diy!
