How to Make a Statue of Liberty Costume

Save

The Statue of Liberty is a popular American patriotic costume. Whether you need the outfit for a school play or perhaps for Halloween, it's easy and inexpensive to make with only a few simple household items.

Things You'll Need

  • White or green bed sheet
  • Poster board
  • Black marker
  • Headband
  • Yellow tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Green face paint
  • Glue
  • Dye the sheet green and allow to dry completely if starting with a white sheet.

  • Cut a piece of green poster board to make a cone shape for the torch. If you have to use white poster board, paint it green and allow to dry before continuing with the torch. Roll poster board into a cone and glue to secure.

  • Take yellow tissue paper and stuff into the cone to mimic a flame from the torch.

  • Cut another piece of green poster board in the shape of a crown. Outline with black marker. Glue the crown to a headband to help keep it on.

  • Tie your green sheet on like a toga. You may want to use safety pins to secure the sheet in place. If you sew, a few stitches could be added to make dress pleats.

  • Paint your face green using face paint. You may want to paint exposed skin green also, or wear long sleeves and pants in the same color of green.

Tips & Warnings

  • Wrap tin foil around the flashlight and tape red and yellow tissue paper over the lens to make a torch.
