Rocket Costume

This week has been rather busy making a rocket costume required for a school blast off event.

As usual I referred to Pinterest for rocket costume ideas, and found this great image from Doodlecraft.


I made our own version, as we had no silver spray to hand to gain the silver effect I used a mixture of PVA mixed with silver paint shaken inside the bottle. The bottles have adhered together, with the aid of a glue gun and elasticated loops created for ease of wearing.

My daughter loved making her own rocket hat, using cardboard and tin foil:)

If you love making DIY costumes for children then check out the quickest cape ever (a quick transformation of an old skirt) or how about a spider t-shirt?

    Two great recycling ideas. The rockets are a great idea, and I love the packaging with old patterns.

    What a great idea with the bottles, the costume looks great. Good news on the sell out 🙂
    It’s a great reason to have to make more.
