My daughter wanted to be a “trash can”, but I took it a step further. If she were a trash can, all we could really throw in her without being cruel to the environment would be …what…food scraps? ooh gross. So we chose a Homemade Recycle Bin Costume, and glued on newspaper, milk jugs, cardboard food boxes, etc.
To make the letters and arrows so precise on all sides, I printed them off the computer first, and “traced the images” onto the cardboard really hard. Then filled in the imprints. A few bottles of cheap craft paint and there you have it. My baby going green for Halloween!
