My daughter’s (11 and 13) came up with this Halloween Costume DIY project. They were able to be seen and they stayed warm. I used 3 packages of small, 1 large, and a very small amount of packing tape. So out of pocket $5 costumes for 2 kids!

How to make a stick figure Glowing Halloween Costume DIY project:

You will need:

glow sticks

  • Black sweat pants
  • Black hooded sweatshirt
  • Several packages of bracelet sized glow sticks. Any color. They come 8 to a package at the Dollar tree and are 8 inches long
  • 1 Package of necklace sized glow stick. Any color. These are 4 to a package at the Dollar tree and are 22 inches long
  • 1 roll of clear packing tape

Method:

Lay your sweats out on a flat surface. Crack the glow sticks and shake them well. Place the glow sticks on the legs of the sweat pants holding them in place with a piece of packing tape. For the arms you can repeat the method used on the legs or you can use 1 long necklace sized glow to stick using the tape to hold the ends in place.
