Spider Girl Inspired Costume Tutorial
(our pieces available for ages 2-9 years)
What a super easy and fun hero costume we have today. Super hero costumes are still very popular for all age groups. And, with pieces from Always Under Pay, this was a really quick and simple one to make ourselves.
Royal Blue Tutus (we layered two for fullness)
Royal Blue 1.5″ Grosgrain Ribbon(about 1 yard)
Red 5/8 ” Grosgrain Ribbon(about a 5-6″ piece)
Red Tulle (1-1.5 yards, cut into 6″ squares)
String (I used crochet thread)
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Instructions for Bow:
Use this tutorial here to make a boutique bow (as shown in the photo above) with your 1.5” royal blue grosgrain ribbon.
Take your tulle squares and gather them in the center, then tie it with string making a bow shape. Don’t cut the string tails off yet.
Use a bit of hot glue to glue the center of your blue boutique bow to the center of the tulle bow you just created. Then, use your string tails to tie the bows together for added security. Now you can clip the tails of the string.
Tie a knot in the center of your piece o f 5/8” red grosgrain ribbon. Then, hot glue that knot to the center of your bow as shown below.
Trim the tails of the red 5/8” grosgrain ribbon just long enough to wrap around the back of your bow assembly. Hot glue these tail pieces in place.
Hot glue the double prong alligator clip to the underside of the bow. Then trim your tulle pieces so that they look the way you want behind your blue piece.
Instructions for Top:
Download the free Spider Logo Template here. Size the template to what you need to fit your top and print the template on just regular copy printing paper.
Cut the spider out of the copy paper, attach the template to the black felt and cut the spider out of the black felt.
Next, just use the hot glue gun to attach the spider to the front of your red t-shirt.
What a fun and easy costume for those super hero loving girls in our lives!
