Someday we’re going to run out of fruit costumes to make (cough: pineapple, strawberry, citrus) but TODAY IS NOT THAT DAY! This DIY banana costume is perhaps the easiest costume we’ve ever made!?!? Yep, I think so. GET THEE A YELLOW PENCIL SKIRT!
Step-by-Step Banana Costume Tutorial
- Cut out four “peel” shapes from yellow craft foam.
- Use them as a template to trace and cut out the same shapes from your white craft foam.
- Hot glue a yellow peel to a white peel. Repeat with the remaining ones.
- Put on your outfit and literally just tuck the foam peels into your skirt! THAT’S IT!! You can safety pin them for extra security if necessary.
