Easy Socktopus Costume

Materials:

  • Duct tape
  • About 30 plastic grocery bags
  • Craft felt sheets in black, white, and pink
  • Glue dots

Instructions:

  1. Cut facial features from craft felt. For eyes, cut 2 large white circles and 2 smaller black circles, for the mouth, a crescent-shaped black piece, and a small pink piece for the tongue.

  2. Glue facial features together with glue dots, and then onto the sweatshirt. They should be easy to remove after you're done with the costume.

  3. Loosely stuff six knee socks with plastic grocery bags, leaving about 3" empty at the top.

  4. Tape the six stuffed socks around the inside waistband of the sweatshirt. Make sure you are taping the socks high enough so that when your child is wearing the costume they will not drag on the ground. To anchor the sock to the sweatshirt, use a 4" piece of tape running vertically (up and down) over the edge of the sock and another piece of tape running horizontally (side to side) across the edge of the sock.

  6. Wear the last pair of socks with your costume when you dress up!
