I wanted to think of something fun for my boys so I came to this site for inspiration. I found the homemade Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes and I knew that was what I wanted to do.
Making these costumes was very easy. I bought red sweatsuits, white felt, and black fabric paint for the costume part. First, I cut out the felt into ovals. Then I found an image online of exactly what the writing on the costume looks like and just free handed the words onto the felt. I hot glued the felt circles onto the shirts.
To make the hats I bought two beanie type hats and 4 boas. The boas were the kind that are just furry not the kind with feathers on them. I believe I bought them at Hancocks Fabrics. It might of been Hobby Lobby though. I started hot gluing the boas to the hat at the bottom and just circled it around until I got to the top.
Cost: $15 each
