Halloween is just around the corner! Do you have your costume ready yet? I love coming up with ideas for silly costumes – other than creativity, my main priorities are practicality and comfort. With that in mind, I decided to dress up as a cool cucumber this year! Kind of silly, but so fun and easy to wear! I’ll be dressed up while I help run our local girl scouts’ Halloween party, so I needed to make sure to wear a costume I could still run around in to set up and run the games.
This costume is great for all ages – babies, kids, teens, and adults! Just pick out some green clothing from the thrift or discount store, and glue on some felt squiggles! If you don’t want your favorite green sweater to look like a cucumber forever, try using double-sided tape instead for a more temporary option.
What You Need
- Green felt
- White glue
- Green clothes (shirt, pants/skirt, baseball cap)
Cut thin wavy strips out of green felt. Make some long, some short, and use different shades of green felt if you have them.
Lay the waves out on your green outfit – I arranged mine into vertical rows to imitate a cucumber’s texture.
Use white glue to secure the waves in place. Let dry completely. When dry, dress up! Use props like sunglasses, sliced cucumbers, or a skateboard to show how cool you are. ;)
