Day 28 – Spidergirl DIY Halloween Costume Tutorial Cheap Easy


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.

Materials Needed:

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)

Red Double Prong Alligator Clips

String (I used crochet thread)

Glue Gun and Glue Sticks


Black Felt

Red T-shirt

Instructions for Bow:


Step One:

Use this tutorial here to make a boutique bow (as shown in the photo above) with your 1.5” royal blue grosgrain ribbon.

Step Two:

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.

Step Three:

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.

Step Four:

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.

Step Five:

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.

Step Six:

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.

And, your bow is finished! You could use this same tutorial to make any different color variations on this bow. The possibilities are nearly endless!


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!
