Halloween costumes for twins – Scuba Divers!

I was trying to come up with good Halloween costumes for my twins…then it hit me…scuba divers!!  These were super easy to make!  I think the whole project cost no more than $20.

 

WWP-7

 

Supplies:

WWP-1

I got the black clothes at Walmart – onesies, pants, hats, “socks”

Black felt – Walmart – used to make the flippers

Spray paint – Walmart

Duck Tape – Walmart and Dollar Tree

Black tubing – Lowe’s

Clear Pacifiers – Walmart

Goggles – Dollar Tree

Velcro – Walmart

2 Liter pop bottles

 

How I did it:

The pictures pretty much sum it up, but it was super easy!  All the clothes I got at Walmart.  The socks were actually mittens.  They were a two pack for 97 cents.  I cut off the thumbs and sewed it together so they were socks!  The goggles I got at the Dollar Tree.

First, I spray painted 2 liter pop bottles silver..  When they were completely dry, I put black duck tape around it and then another skinnier, brighter piece around that.  I got the skinnier neon colors at the Dollar Tree.  I then placed Velcro on the back of the pop bottles.  In the cap, I made a hole and took my black piping and shoved it in there.  It wasnt going anywhere so I didnt need to glue or tape it.  I then took the pacifier and used black duck tape to tape it to the end of the black piping.  I put velcro on the back of the twins shirts so secure the “tank”.

See how easy it was?  It was a big hit with all the neighbors!

_WWP3615-Edit

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

Melt your chocolate the way you want.  I used my melting pot.

_WWP3619-Edit

Put aside a bowl of blue sprinkles.

_WWP3621-Edit

While the chocolate is melting, put lollipop sticks in the tops of the strawberries (where the green stuff is).

_WWP3617-Edit_WWP3647-Edit

When the chocolate is done melting, dip each strawberry three quarters of the way in the white chocolate.  You might need a spoon to cover the missed spots.

_WWP3622-Edit_WWP3626-Edit

Let it cool down a LITTLE, but NOT completely and then dip it a little bit in the blue sprinkles.

Repeat for each strawberry.

Gift for dance teacher

Gift for dance teacher!

 

Supplies needed:

 

Paper for handprints

8×10 frame

Paint

Ribbon

Glue

Scrap paper

 

Instructions:

 

Paint your child’s hands and cross them so the thumbs will be sticking out.  Press firmly on the paper.  Allow to fully dry.  I got white scrap paper and painted it to match the color of her hand prints for the top of the tutu.  I then used Purple ribbon and glued it to hide where her hand prints and tutu top meet.  After it was dry I printed up a little paper that says “Miss Erin – Thank you for giving me the gift of dance!”  I also made a tag for her gift bag.
