Paint Brush Costume

Have your child dress in a solid color to represent the handle of the paint brush, black or brown is best. Then you need the brush part, which can be made from brooms. Cut a piece of cardboard and paint it silver, then shape it to fit your child’s head. Cut the bristles from the brooms and poke them into a round styrofoam disc and add some hot glue for stability. Then attach the disc to the cardboard and your paint brush top is ready.

The final piece to complete this costume is a paint palette, which you can make from strong cardboard or foam. Cut it to the appropriate shape, paint it white if you need to, and add a handle at the back. Add paint splotches and your palette is ready.

This costume is perfect for the little artist in your life and it’s so easy to make!
