There’s nothing like Halloween to encourage dressing up – and like most kids, these girlfriends love to dress up and match! Making honeycomb costumes is a fun way to create a look that is as adorable for one as it would be for two, or ten. The honeycomb is quickly becoming the iconic mark of modern birthday parties and these life size ones are even more fun. An easy costume choice for siblings, friends, and party lovers of any age.
To make the honeycomb costumes you will need an old shirt, 20 sheets of tissue wrapping paper, hot glue, ribbon, and wire for the top hanger.
Begin by cutting each sheet of tissue paper in half lengthwise, this will leave you 40 half sheets of the tissue. Glue each of the sheets vertically onto the shirt, spacing about 1/2 an inch as you glue. Work the tissue under and around the sleeves so the honeycombs are easy to put on. Begin gluing the tissue papers to each other – glue two dots to combine and then three on the next sheet – then two, then three in succession around the shirts.
Top each honeycomb with a ribbon wire hanger by gluing it onto the front of the shirt and forming around each girls head.
Enjoy a night of matching and merry trick or treating.
