I have another Halloween costume for you and this one uses duct tape! Duct tape is such a great craft item to have around because there is so much you can make with it. Also, it comes in so many great colors and patterns that you could come up with all sorts of costumes. Making this costume is so simple that older kids could even put this costume together completely on their own. This DIY is for a tiger costume, but you could certainly make a zebra, leopard, and many other animals. Duck tape is definitely a fun and easy route to go for some Halloween costume making!
Duct Tape Tiger Halloween Costume
Total time: 1 hour
Duct Tape (orange and black)
To make the headband:
Cut out a 6″ strip of black duct tape and place on one side of the headband, centering the headband on the tape (sandwich the headband). Fold and press the wrong sides of the tape together. Cut into a triangle ear shape. Cut out small triangle-like slits from the orange duct tape and place on the ear. Repeat to create the second tiger ear.
To make the body:
Cut out various triangle-like slits to create the tiger stripes, and place all over the front and back of the pants and shirt. It is best to alternate the lines on each side.
To make the tail:
Cut out a 30″ long strip of black duct tape. Fold at the center width-wise, then press together. Cut out about 1/2″ from each side all the way down, but fan out to create the bottom of the tail. Cut thin, little slits about 2″ up the bottom of the tail. Cut out various triangle-like slits from the orange duct tape to create the tiger stripes pattern on the tail, and place on the front and back of the tail. To attach the tail to the costume, use a safety pin or sew on desired spot.
