Cell Phone Costume

Time: 1 hour

Effort: Quick and easy — no sewing required


  • Glow-in-the-dark fabric paint and brush
  • Black shirt
  • Coat hanger
  • Black pants

Instructions: Paint numbers and other buttons to resemble a cell phone key pad on the shirt. Untwist the coat hanger, and wrap it around the outside of the hat for the antenna. Place the foam ball at the end of the antenna.

Other details: Because of the coat hanger, this costume is inappropriate for young elementary-schoolers.
