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.
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!
First time doing this!
Strawberries – the pointier the better!
Melt your chocolate the way you want. I used my melting pot.
Put aside a bowl of blue sprinkles.
While the chocolate is melting, put lollipop sticks in the tops of the strawberries (where the green stuff is).
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.
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!
Paper for handprints
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.
