Make Your Own Sea Turtle Costume!
- 1 or 2 large cardboard box/cartons. I get these from appliance stores or bicycle shops
- 8 1-2″ wide strips of fabric about 1-2 ft. long. I got fabric from a thrift shop, old sheets or bed spreads work well for this (try to find a color that is similar to your turtle).
- Quart of exterior house paint (possibly some Z-prime for an undercoat depending on quality desired).
- A heavy-duty stapler with 3/8″ staples. Stapler needs to be the long handled heavy duty type. Staples longer than 3/8″ tend to bend and come back through the cardboard creating a sharp, snagging hazard.
