For Halloween, learn how to make an alien costume for kids. Use our printable template of iron-on iridescent symbols for an out-of-this-world look. If you need more inspiration, scroll through our entire collection of Halloween costume ideas.
For the skirt: Cut 1/2 yard of iridescent vinyl fabric to twice the waist measurement. Fold over the top of the fabric 1 inch and sew a channel for the elastic, leaving a 2-inch opening on one side.
Feed the elastic through the opening and throughout the channel. Sew the ends of the elastic together and then finish sewing up the channel.
For the shirt: Use the template to cut the alien symbols from the iridescent vinyl using a vinyl cutting machine. Remove the negative space and cut out the alien symbols and iron onto the shirt in an abstract pattern. Remove the plastic backing from the iron-on symbols.
For the alien antennae: Twist the pipe cleaners into a headband, then twist on two curly-shaped pieces.
Pair the costume with iridescent leggings, sunglasses, and even a silver painted dome umbrella to act as the hovering spaceship.
