Mouse Trap Halloween Costume by Cindy Noriega
This was Cindy’s daughter’s first Halloween costume and it was a big hit! Using all recycled materials, this mousetrap is not only green, but keeps her daughter comfortable and safe for her first foray into Halloween. What an incredible idea and fabulous execution for a baby’s first Halloween costume!
HOW TO MAKE THIS COSTUME
Using A Radio Flyer Wagon covered with MDF board, make a hole for child to fit. Add a wooden edge. Then paint the mousetrap design.
Attach a large spring and a aluminum tubing bent into a u shape. For the Swiss cheese, cut a 4×4 landscaping lumber which was cut into a triangle, drilled holes and painted yellow.
The mouse’s body was made with felt fabric. Attached to the wagons seat belt with two ribbon loops.
The child’s outfit is a simple gray hooded sweatshirt with two grey and pink ears sewn on.
