Television Costume

Time: 1 to 2 hours

Effort: Quick and easy - no sewing required


  • Black clothes
  • Big cardboard box
  • Aluminum foil
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Black paint and paintbrush, or black spray paint
  • Hanger
  • Plastic wrap
  • A cute picture for the TV screen
  • Grey construction paper
  • Plastic headband

Instructions: Cut out the bottom of the cardboard box. Cut out a hole in front for the "picture." Cut a hole in the top big enough to get your head through, but small enough to keep the box on your shoulders. Paint the box black. Glue the plastic wrap over the picture hole. Glue a picture behind the plastic wrap. Make TV dials out of construction paper. Glue the dials on. Bend the hanger for the antenna. Put the foil on the antenna and make sure that the bottom is square. Hot glue the bottom of the antenna to a cut piece of cardboard (not the TV). Hot glue the antenna (with the piece of cardboard) to the headband. Put on the black clothes, TV, and antenna, and you're ready to go!
