The big night is in almost there and you’re looking for a last minute Haloween costume for your your child. Your search is over: here’s how to make a clock costume for kid that won’t take long to produce. Actually this clock costume is something I made for my child years ago while having to get creative for a masquerade attire. Like you, I had to make the party outfit at the very last moment.
A clock costume is something unusual, the kind of Halloween costume for kids that you won’t see everywhere and that you can be proud of since you made it yourself. The best part of the costume is that you can be as creative as you wish and customize it as much as you want. Clocks come in different styles, from Victorian to flashy, from round to square, you’ll always sure to find a clock that meets your needs.
Materials you need to make a clock costume for kid
To make a clock costume for kid you will need cardboard. Two big pieces of cardboard that must be as wide as your child’s waist line. Make sure the cardboard doesn’t cover his entire arms. Here’s the entire list of materials your need to make a clock costume:
- 2 big pieces of cardboard,
- Crepe paper (choose the color that best suits your child’s tastes)
- Colored construction paper
- Hole punch
- Craft glue
Directions to make the clock costume:
- Cut the cardboard pieces into circles or squares – I chose circles,
- Using a pencil cover the surface with glue and paste the crepe paper – the paper must cover both sides of the cardboard,
- Draw numbers from 1 to 12 on colored construction paper and cut all them out,
- Draw a big and a small clock needles,
- Stick numbers and needles on one of the circles
- Draw clock tools on a sheet of black construction paper and cut them out,
- Stick them on the other circle which will feature the back of the clock,
- Punch 2 holes on the top of each piece of cardboard: using ribbon, you’ll fix the clock on your child’s shoulders,
- Punch 2 holes on each side of the clock: with ribbons you will secure the clock on your child’s waist.
Here how’s the clock should look like:
