How to Make a Tin Man Costume
If you love classic movies and broadway plays this Tin Man costume will get your wheels spinning. Best of all you don’t even need any help from the Wizard of Oz to put this one together! With a little elbow grease and a lot of heart your Tin Man costume will be a Halloween hit.
Things You’ll Need:
Putting your Tin Man Costume Together:
Step 1: Find an old jacket, old gloves and an old pair of jeans around the house or purchase them inexpensively from a second hand store. Use the duct tape to wrap these garments. They should be covered in duct tape, but still maintain their original shape, so don’t wrap to tight. You will also wrap your shoes or boots in duct tape.
Step 2. The cardboard box that you use needs to be big enough to wear over top the jacket and jeans. Cut a hole in the top and sides for your arms and head. Leave the bottom of the box open for your body. Cover the box in tin foil and duct tape, leaving the holes open for your arms and head.
Step 3: To put the finishing touches on your Tin Man costume you will cover the funnel in duct tape and use a clip or pin to hold it in place on your head. You will use silver Halloween face paint to cover your entire face.
