Make Black Triangles

Cut small triangle shapes out of black felt and hot glue the shapes to the shorts.

Create and Secure the Sash

Make a one-shoulder sash long enough to reach from the top of the front of your shorts and over your shoulder to the top of the back of the shorts. Make the sash out of brown felt, and cut into the sides of the felt to create a jagged edge. Safety pin or hot glue the ends of the sash to the top of the orange shorts.

Give Him a Bone

Trace a bone shape onto white felt and cut it out. Hot glue the felt bone onto the bottom of the brown felt sash.

Layer the Shirts

Wear a white T-shirt under the shorts and sash for added warmth and comfort.

Finish Your DIY Bamm Bamm Costume

Hot glue black felt shapes onto the orange baseball cap to match your shorts or skirt and complete your Pebbles and Bamm Bamm costume.

Tip

Instead of wearing a wig, you could color your hair with colored hairspray or temporary hair dye.

If you're making DIY Pebbles and Bamm Bamm costumes for your children, make a Fred or Wilma costume for yourself.

Warning

Be careful using hot glue guns around children; hot glue can burn your skin. Never leave them alone with a hot glue gun.
