DIY Slinky Costume



  • Cut the bottom out of the hamper.
  • Stretch out the flexible hose as much as possible. Starting at the top or bottom of the hamper, begin hot gluing the hose to it. The best way to do this is to run a line of hot glue along small sections of the hose and press it on to the hamper. (Since the hamper is mesh, do not use your hand to press it on the backside. I found it easiest to lay the hamper on top of the hot glue instead.
  • Continue wrapping the hose all the way around until the entire hamper is covered. It does not have to be perfect and, in fact, shouldn't be for a more realistic look.
  • Sit the wrapped hamper upright and start spray painting. Start with one color and continue with different colors all the way up, allowing each to overlap slightly and making sure that the colors are spread throughout the layers of hose, and don't just look like stripes of color. Let dry completely.
  • Hot glue two ribbon straps in place, to go over your shoulders.
