|Halloween Costume - My Jet Pack Boys|
It was a last minute thing. Unlike last year's Halloween making that complicated Train Costume, I had not much time this year.
I did some Pinterest search though and knew that I wanted to make these Jet Packs that Shern wanted, but I did not get my bum up to actually do it until yesterday, which was already the Halloween eve.
I went to grab the materials only 3 days ago.
The materials are simple and few.
To make a Jet Pack, all you just need are below:-
- 2 empty mineral bottles,
- A roll of soft aluminium foil
- Crepe paper
- Thin elastics (not shown here)
- Scissors, craft glue and tape
I got the roll of soft aluminium foil from Daiso for RM5, and the crepe papers from Popular Bookstore for RM1 each.
First, just wrap the aluminium foil around the bottles. I used the glue for this. You can make it longer than the bottom of the bottles for a longer jet pack for taller kids.
But please don't cover the bottle cap as you need to roll the crepe papers there. (you will see this later)
Then put a long strip of tape onto the floor, and stick those crepe papers onto the tape halfway like this.
Once done, roll the tape onto the bottle cap.
Next, put some tape and stick the two jet packs together. I used another small piece of the foil to cover the tapes.
And then stick the elastics like below for the kids to put their arms through them (and wear it like a backpack)
This is how it looks like front view and back view!
I did these in about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Jet Packs ready for my boys!
This is also Khye's first ever costume!
