Get ready for a SUPER Halloween! This Primary DIY Green Lantern & Wonder Woman costume has got some special powers... because it's made using our comfy PJ faves! Suit up in our Primary essentials for a group look that will save the day.
For the top:
- Find an image online that you like for your superhero logo. Try searching for “wonder woman symbol” and “green lantern symbol”. Print the images and use a photocopier to increase/decrease the scale until you get the size you want for the top.
- Cut a piece of freezer paper off that is bigger than your image and place over the printed image shiny side down. Use a pencil to trace the image.
- Use a craft knife to cut out the image, cut away and remove the parts that you want painted, and the negative space of the stencil will become your final image.
- Place the stencil onto the top (shiny side down) and finalize placement. Gently iron the stencil in place. Make sure all of the edges are ironed down to ensure crisp edges of your stenciled image.
- Place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt underneath the stencil. Using a foam tip applicator or a paint brush, apply an even coat of fabric paint. Let dry completely and apply a second coat.
- When dry, carefully peel off the freezer paper.
For the belts & headbands:
- Use either shiny fabric with stabilizer inside or felt for a no-sew approach. Cut out stabilizer or felt to fit child’s waist/head and desired belt/headband width. Leave some extra length for overlapping at the closure.
- If using fabric, sew or hot glue fabric to stabilizer using a zigzag stitch all around, and tuck fabric around back and secure with hot glue or double stick tape. Attach Velcro to belt to desired size.
For the boots:
- If you have old rain boots, you can use spray paint to make superhero boots to match your costume!
