Take two soda bottles, spray paint them silver, add colorful tape around the outside, and tape them together. ​Then, tape a clear tube from the hardware store to the opening of the bottles and use a hot glue gun to add a larger cap to the end. Wear this over an all-black outfit and accessorize with a snorkel set.

LEGO® blocks

Cut armholes and a head opening in the larger box and a head opening in the smaller one.​ Spray paint the boxes the same color as the cups you choose. ​Finish by using e6000 glue with a glue gun to secure the cups onto the boxes.

Cut armholes and a head opening out of a large rectangular box. ​Cut a smaller box in half and create a hole opening in the bottom. Paint both boxes the same color. Add eyes, cut big chomper teeth to the front and sides and glue.​ Next, add dino spikes—just cut and paint some cardboard and adhere with glue fun.​ Add monster hands and slippers to make an impact!

Cut wavy stripes out of black felt and attach with fabric glue.​ Make a template that says “Crayon” on a piece of paper, and draw using a piece of chalk onto some black felt and cut out. ​For the hat: Use matching cardstock, scissors, ribbon and staple to assemble.
