Rocket Costume

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

DIY rocket costume

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?

  1. Wow – LOVE the rocket costume – it’s fab 🙂 Will definitely try and remember that one for next time mine need to dress up! And congrats on so many knitting needle case sales – always a nice feeling! Love the idea of using old dress patterns for the packaging – looks great. Simmi xx
