Homemade Wilson from Home Improvement
Wilson, from the TV series Home Improvement, was my crowing achievement in terms of little effort for great reward. I got tons of compliments for this costume, which is relatively simple. The biggest challenge was holding up the tiny fence for 4 hours. Mr. Wilson’s face can never be revealed!
I wore boots, long cargo pants, and a flannel jacket I borrowed from my dad’s closet. I borrowed the bucket hat from a friend.
The star of the costume is the fence, which was created from jumbo Popsicle sticks. I put 2 sticks together, then super-glued a stick to the back to hold them together. I slightly raised the center stick to create the reverse V shape you see at the top of most posts. After four posts were created, I connected them with two sticks laid horizontally. It’s important to leave space in between the posts. I spaced mine about 1/2” apart so as to reveal some of my face, but not too much.
After the horizontal sticks were glued to the vertical posts, I glued one stick vertically on the bottom center of the fence to use as a handle. I then primer'ed the fence once, then spray painted once with a maroon spray paint. For this application, I thought maroon was a better color than the traditional brown, but you may feel differently.
The fence was so mysterious that a lot of the people I had met at a big party didn’t recognize me the next day. The homemade Wilson from Home Improvement costume is a great and easy costume. Try it out!

Homemade Mr. Wilson and Heidi Couple Costume
What time is it? Tool Time!
Everybody loved our homemade Mr. Wilson and Heidi couple costume, and they were a hit! These costumes were very simple to make. For Mr. Wilson, I printed out a pattern of wood and just glued it to cardboard and cut it out. Then, I stapled a stick to it so it could be held up. And to wrap up the costume, a plaid shirt, slacks, and nice shoes were worn.
Next for Heidi, I purchased overall shorts. I wore construction boots, construction belt, and I pinned a paper to the front that said TOOL TIME. This costume was great for us since the other half doesn’t like to dress up. But surprisingly, he loved the costume so much that he stayed in character and never showed his mouth from behind the fence!

Homemade Wilson Costume from Home Improvement
Well the idea is to be a Homemade Wilson Costume from Home Improvement. First I got a plaid shirt and fisherman's hat. Second I took an old school bag and took the straps of. I then went to Micheals and got some fake wood. I then stuck the wood to the old backpack and wore it on my front.

Bought particle board at Lowe's, cut with a table saw and nailed together. Made straps from Army Navy store and a reverse belt buckled behind me and nailed to fence. Threw on a bucket hat and a flannel and voila, a Homemade Wilson Costume! Howdy Neighbor!
