How to make Planet Costumes

I had such fun creating these planet costumes for my kids.  At ages 3 and 2, they are constantly talking about flying rockets to the moon.  I love making creative halloween costumes that they can play “dress up” in for the rest of the year.  

We build “rocket-ships” with cardboard boxes all the time, so they are literally “over the moon” with being planets this Halloween!

How to make Outer Space Rocket Hats

To make the Outer Space Rocket hats, I started by spray painting the plastic airplanes (your rockets) gold.  You will need just one for each hat.

Then I took three gold pipe cleaners and twisted them together.  Once twisted, they created just enough stability to hold up the rockets, but still allowed for a little bounce – like they were “flying” around their hats.

Last, I gave the pipe cleaners a slight curve and hot glued the pipe cleaners to the beanie hats.

How to make Jupiter’s Rings Costume

To make your Planet Costume fully complete, you have to add Jupiter’s Rings!

I bought four hula hoops, two for each of my children.  Using colorful glitter washi tape, I wrapped the hula hoops for a little extra sparkle.  

Then, using yarn or string tie the hula hoops together and then create very basic shoulder straps.

Lastly, hot glue gold stars to the hats and tee shirts.
