DIY Spelling Bee Costume
There are 3 things that always make smile in this world. My kids, jokes, and puns. So this spelling bee Halloween costume gave me a good chuckle. The premise is a bee who can spell, but is also a spelling bee contestant. Get it? 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need!
Spelling Bee Costume Materials
- Yellow Shirt
- Black pants
- black Duck tape or black paint
- poster board
- string or twine
How to Make a Homemade DIY Spelling Bee Costume
First, grab your yellow shirt and either use Duck Tape to create lines or you can paint black lines, whatever you have on hand in your craft supplies. I already had black tape from my DIY Stick Figure Costume. You can also do vice versa and use yellow tape or paint on black clothes, you decide!
You can measure out each line if you want. My husband would totally grab a ruler to make sure they were evenly spaced. I’m more of an “eyeball it” type of girl. Mama has things to do.
Next make your spelling bee sign out of poster board. I also had some left over from the Stick Figure costume. Isn’t it great when you can already use what you have at home? Add a contestant number to your sign and tie it around your neck with string or twine.
If you want to be a little extra, you can add some bee accessories like a headband and wings. I found a couple of inexpensive accessories at the Dollar Store.
Now put on your thinking cap, because it’s time to get spelling!
