Helicopter Mom Halloween costume


Looking for a cheap and easy Halloween costume that will leave your friends laughing? Be a Helicopter Mom!

It’s super easy to make! You can whip it up in just about 5 minutes AND with materials from around the house!

You Need:

  • cardboard
  • toilet paper roll
  • scissors
  • black paint
  • hot glue
  • tape
  • 2 safety pins
  • hat
  • shirt (optional)
  • htv (optional)
  • silhouette machine (optional)

To make your helicopter:

  • Cut your cardboard into two strips. Mine are about an 1 1/2″ by 8″
  • Cut your toilet paper roll into a 1/3
  • Have your kiddo paint the cardboard and roll black
  • Once the paint drys pin the toilet paper roll onto the center of the hat
  • Cross your cardboard pieces over one another making an x and hot glue it
  • Hot glue the bottom, center of the X onto the toilet paper roll
  • Add a piece of tape just to make sure it’s secure

To make the shirt:

  • Open the Silhouette Design Software and write Helicopter Mom (I traced an helicopter image)
  • Measure your shirt and resize your image to fit accordingly
  • Flip your image
  • Load your HTV into your Silhouette
  • Adjust your cut settings (since you are working with small letters I recommend dropping the speed some)
  • Click cut
  • Weed your decal
  • Heat up your iron on the cotton setting, lay your decal on your shirt and cover with a tea towel
  • Hold the heat on for 20 seconds, then lift and hold on another section. If you think you are done check a corner and see if the decal fused to the shirt, if not do it again until it does.
  • Once it looks fused give it a second to cool down (not all the way though) and peel the plastic off

Doesn’t get much simpler then that! Now go try on your outfit and take a selfie because I want to see it!! But do me a favor and use the hashtag #helicoptermomfw2w so that I can check it out.

Have a great Halloween! xo, Dee
