I have been making my children coordinating homemade Halloween costumes ever since they could crawl. They have been baby owls, a Baker + Cupcake and Planets. Last year my kids were into all things underwater. So when Halloween was nearing, I decided to create them matching DIY Scuba Diver Halloween Costumes. Unfortunately, I did not capture pictures of the creation process for the blog, but decided to share the few personal photos I had from last year.

This as they were just heading out with dad for a casual walk down the street and back.
This was such a fun and simple costume!
Black shirt and pants \ 2 sets of 2 Litter Bottles
Cotton Rope or yarn \ Spray Paint (green + blue)
Black Electrical Tape \ Sponge Hair Curlers
Swim Goggles + Snorkels \ Metal Pail
Silver Washi tape \ hot glue \ chalkboard paint
I saved four 2-Litter bottles, washed and dried them. Then I spray painted them the appropriate colors. After they were dry, I added black electrical tape and silver washi tape to secure them together. I used rope to create the straps. Using hot glue I glued the bottom of the rope to the bottom of the painted bottles. The top portion of the rope, I tucked into the bottom and added a dab of glue to secure.
SCUBA TOOL BELT:
Their tool belt was electrical tape with sponge hair curlers woven through. I doubled the tape onto itself so it wasn’t sticky and wrapped around their waist. I used one additional piece of tape to keep it all together. You could add all kinds of fun little items on their belt but the sponge curlers are light weight and inexpensive, so I just went with these!
Target was having a sale on summer swim gear, so I snagged a blue and green set of goggles and snorkels for $6.99. However, these are a similar styled snorkel and mask.
Here is a close up of their tool belt. You can see the doubled up electrical tape and how I wove the sponge curlers through it.
The best part was they dressed up as scuba divers for months and months afterwards. This was an excellent costume on the cheap that really got some great use out of! So next year be sure to keep DIY Scuba Diver Halloween Costumes high on your list!
