Treasure Chest Hunt Costume

I made this fun treasure chest hunt “apparel” for my nephews’ birthday… I made a set of 3 since there are 3 boys and they play together. Even though they are different ages, they are like triplets! :0) I made each of the individual items that they might use, with different colored beads, so they could each have a matching “set” of the items here. This was one of the most fun projects I have come up with and it just happened, one idea after another kept coming to me as I would make one item, then I would think of something else to add to it! I would love to make more projects like this! :0) And, they loved them!
What I included was, a “burlap” sac to carry everything in, waist pouches with a bead closure to put on a belt, notebook to write clues, wristlet made of faux leather with beads as fake clues to the treasure, bag with chocolate “gold coins” and my girls drew and colored a treasure map using names of all the cousins for lakes, and mountains and stuff…

Material Notes

faux leather, beads with oriental style writing or images, burlap like fabric, rope,




Garment Type
Blends, Leather/Fur
