The Eye Balls Have It Costume

To make this costume, start with a white kitchen trash bag. Cut a hole at the top for the child's head and one on either side for their arms.

For the pupil, we hot glued a paper plate painted black to the center of the front side of the trash bag.

For the iris, we used slightly crumpled green Saran Wrap, also hot glued to the trash bag. Optional red streaks were made with red mylar from a leftover birthday balloon, but could be made with red permanent marker.

Dress the child in either a white or black sweatsuit (we went with white for better visibility at night). An adult can help the child put the bag over their head, then stuff with newspaper and tie the bag closed around the child's waist. A thrifty and fun costume guaranteed to be a hit!

What a "spooky" idea! Eyeballs are great for Halloween. I like to make eyeballs to hang from my trees.
