DIY Couples Costume

Pebbles and Bam-Bam

With only one week left until Halloween I thought this was a great time to share my quick and easy do-it-yourself couples costume, inspired by the Flintstones lovable babies – Pebbles and Bam-Bam. Not only is it cheap to make but it is also super comfortable to wear, and here is the how to;

What you will need:

Pebbles

-Dog bone spray painted white

-black felt cut into triangles

-green tee shirt and blue shorts (I purchased boys boxers from Wal-Mart for $3)

-dollar store jewelry (shell and stone necklace and bracelets)

-glue gun, scissors and string

Simply cut the sleeves and bottom of the tee shirt and boxer shorts in a triangular pattern and then glue gun the black triangles in random order all over the shirt. Put a few strands of hair in a high pony tail, and place the bone in front, to secure the bone wrap string in a criss-cross pattern (I used string that was similar in colour to my hair).

What you will need:

Bam-Bam

-2 yards of orange fabric

-1/2 yard of leopard print fabric (or a leopard print scarf)

-old base ball cap

-black felt cut into triangles

Cut fabric diagonally (on the bias) to allow for a nicely draped orange toga. Hem finish the edge that was just cut, this will be the top of the toga. Cut all other edges in a triangular pattern. Cut a slit to allow for your arm hole. Cut triangles from black felt and glue gun on the toga randomly. Stitch together the two sides of the toga so it stays on the body. Drape the leopard fabric over one shoulder and gather together at the side. Use left over orange fabric to create a belt and to cover an existing baseball cap.

Happy Halloween!!
