How to make a DIY operation game costume
What you need
- VELCRO® Brand Stick On for Fabrics Ovals
- Grey tracksuit
- Red t-shirt and leggings
- White cardboard
- Our free printable 'body parts'
What to do
Start by cutting out the first set of free printable 'body parts' with a dotted outline.
Pin each one temporarily in position on the grey tracksuit and draw an outline around each one with a black marker pen. Remove the templates and cut each shape out of the tracksuit.
Next, take the second set of printable 'body parts' with a solid outline, cut them out and stick one half of a set of VELCRO® Brand Stick On for Fabrics Ovals on the back of each one. To make these parts more sturdy, you could mount them onto cardboard.
Now to get dressed! Put the red clothing on underneath the grey tracksuit and stick the other half of a set of VELCRO® Brand Stick On for Fabrics Ovals in the middle of each shape. You'll really see your DIY costume taking shape now!
Last but not least, stick the 'body parts' onto the costume and your board game inspired costume is finished!
