Squad Ghouls 2: Stick Figures

Here at Laffy Taffy we know that the family that crafts together, laff's together. Which is why we're bringing you a limited series of some of the best DIY family Halloween costumes. Every Wednesday in October we will be featuring fun, simple, and inexpensive Halloween costumes that every member of the family can take part in making and will mostly consist of stuff you likely have around your house.

Without further ado we present Squad Ghouls: a DIY Family Halloween Costume Blog.

Welcome back to Squad Ghouls where we know that there ain't no party like a Laffy Taffy party, cause a Laffy Taffy party's got crafts!

Today, we're asking the age old question: who really needs that third dimension? With this ridiculously simple and effective stick figure costume you can let your 2D flag fly. We've got two versions for you, because they are just that simple.

All you'll need:

  • a white long sleeved shirt and white pants

  • dark tape like electrical tape or gaff tape

  • poster board

  • black marker

  • twine

STEP TWO: Cut the circle out along where you've traced it making two matching cardboard circles. With the marker draw in the "chocolate chips" at various points on both pieces. The kiddos will likely enjoy helping here.

STEP 3: Measure a length of twine a little bit bigger than half of your head, slip both ends into the "ear" holes and knot it to make the strap for the mask.

And there you go. The basic stick figure costume.

Want to take it up a notch? Replace the black tape with glow-in-the-dark tape and the black marker with glow-in-the-dark markers to make your costume thrive with the lights out.

That's it! Come back next week when we get a little punny with a clever bee costume that will have you nostalgic for elementary school!
