It started this Homemade Geico Money Costume with a target plastic bin as the center of the costume. I cut a hole in the top and wore it as a skirt. I took foam board and cut holes over the container and made four shelves that were fastened over the bin. Then I stuffed newspaper in layers throughout the costume. I took bamboo stakes and pierced all of the items together.
Then spray painted the paper with green spray paint. I added the money strip with construction paper. I used foam eyes and black felt for the pupils. I installed speakers behind the eyes and downloaded the song on my iPod. It turned out great.
