DIY Scuba Diver Halloween Costume

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.

My son was in all blue accents for his scuba diver costume and my little girl was all in green.

This was such a fun and simple costume!

supply listBlack shirt and pants
2 sets of 2 Litter Bottles
Rope
Spray Paint (green + blue)
Black Electrical Tape
Sponge Hair Curlers
Swim Goggles + Snorkels
Metal Pail

I saved four 2 Litter bottles and spray painted them the appropriate colors.  Then, I added simple electrical tape and silver washi tape to secure them together.  I used rope to create the straps.
Their tool belt was electrical tape with Dollar Store hair curlers woven through.

Target was having a sale on summer swim gear, so I snagged a blue and green set of goggles and snorkels for $6.99.  These are a similar styled *Snorkel and mask.

Target’s dollar section came into play for their fish buckets.  And a little chalkboard paint to add their names.

As you can see, I used electrical tape for their “tool” belt and then wove 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!

    1. Good question, Daria! I tied a knot on one end of the rope and the opened the top of the soda bottle and placed the rope/knot inside the bottle, then put the cap back on. So that held the top portion of the rope. For the bottom, I simply glued the rope using hot glue.
