Skeleton Costume

 Hi, I have another spooky cool costume to share with you: a DIY Skeleton costume! This cool costume, designed by my friend Tracy Gonzalez, is totally no sew and “SO” CLEVER!

Costume Base: Black long sleeve shirt, black sweatpants and black shoes (you probably already have these things or find at stores like Target or Walmart). Now onto the fun items you can make! By the way…  All craft materials are from Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames in Redmond.

Step 2: Once mask is dry cut small slits in the side of the mask and slip elastic through and tie one side.  Adjust to your child’s head and then tie the other side.

Step 2: Once mask is dry cut small slits in the side of the mask and slip elastic through and tie one side.  Adjust to your child’s head and then tie the other side.

Step 3: For ribs and spine place on fold of the fabric and cut together so both sides are the same.  Tip: For the center bones use the scissors to make a small cut which will allow you to then be able to cut the center bones out easily.

 Step 4: Pin spine together to keep it steady when you cut.

Step 5: Lay black long sleeve shirt and sweat pants on a table or floor and place bones down. 

Skeleton9

 Use fabric glue to stick the bones down.

Step 6: Use the black puff paint to add any details you like, to make the bones look more realistic.

 Our final DIY Costume idea is coming up soon!
