Halloween is upon us, and what better way to get into the spooky spirit than to create your very own man-eating plant costume out of cardboard? This creative project is a perfect mix of fun, fright, and a little bit of botanical charm.
Whether you're gearing up for a costume party, New Years fancy dress or just want to scare some trick-or-treaters, this template comes with illustrated instructions and a walk through video to guide you to make this man-eating plant costume that's sure to steal the spotlight.
This botanical man-eating plant takes the old cardboard box costume to the next level.
This is the perfect stand out costume for halloween this year and it's all made from upcycled materials. There is no need to wait for parcels to arrive in the post, download the template and get started straight away.
What you need to make this costume:
~ Single walled cardboard
(The best cardboard for this build needs to be firm and stiff, 1-3 mm think cardboard that is not flimsy - remember thick cardboard doesnt mean it is firmer, a lot of the thinner cardboards are more strudy)
~ Card or single face cardboard
~ Hot Glue and Glue gun
~ Glue stick
~ Masking Tape
~ Printer and paper
~ Sticky Tac (Blue Tac)
~ Craft Blade and scissors
By printing the costume template on different paper sizes you can make the costume for an adult size man-eating plant costume or a child size.
Once you have built the framework to your costume you can decorate it however you like. It comes with dots, tentacles and leaves, so you can get creative and make it your own.
