I was inspired by this website to make a homemade Spongebob Square Pants costume and so I did… I work with the after school programs and guess who was our monthly guest speaker? You guessed it! Spongebob Square Pants! The total cost was only $10 in materials and about a day’s work of putting it together.
I used strainers and a laundry bag for the eyes, paper mache a balloon for the nose, used apple trays from the grocers for the head and two boxes for the body. I actually attached the sleeves onto the arm holes and yes, those are actual shorts, two of them to be exact. Enjoy!
