Looking for a quick Costume Idea or Kids


Bat Costume

Bat Costume

Materials Needed:
• Black Sweatsuit (with hood)
• Black Umbrella
• Black Felt
• Safety Pins or Needle and Thread
• Scissors
• Instructions:
Start out by Removing the handle from the umbrella and then cutting the umbrella in half. This will be your bat wings. You will probably have to use some tools or even a saw to disassemble the umbrella.
• Sew or use safety pins to attach the cut edge of the umbrella to the back of the arms of a black sweatshirt. Make sure that there are no sharp edges.
• Cut ears out of black felt and use needle and thread or safety pins to attach the ears to the hood of the sweatshirt.
• If you do not have an umbrella, you can cut mini wings out of felt and pin them in place.
