Step 1: Step 1

Picture of Step 1
If you're looking for a cheap power rangers Halloween helmet, and don't have the money to buy the expensive custom ones that can run a few hundred dollars, this is a fun option that should only run you between $40 and $50. You'll need: Cereal boxes cut in strips Hot glue gun/glue sticks White glue for paper mâché Newspaper Paper mâché pulp A dremel or fine cutting tool LOTS of sand paper Craft foam Paint: spray paint and others for details Black screen mesh Hinges for the top Clasp hinges for the sides And a few days free time

Step 2: Step 2

Use the cereal box strips to make a ring around the top of your head, and then one running horizontally under your chin, leaving a little room around your head (remember, you have to wear it). Use the rest of the strips to fill it in solid, making sure you try it on a few times.

Step 3: Step 3

Water down the glue for paper mâché. Cut the newspaper into long strips, soaking it in the glue solution on both sides, and smooth them over the entire helmet until completely covered. You'll have to leave it to dry completely.

Step 4: Step 4

Make the paper mâché pulp in the slightly more watered down version (trust me, I tried it thicker first haha) and sanding will be MUCH more difficult. Coat it completely until it has about a quarter inch covering it all. This is where you'll have to let it dry for at least a day or two, more or less depending on how ventilated it is. Try leaving it in front of a fan. Once dry (you'll be able to tell by touching it to see if it's squishy), you'll have to sand the heck out of it to make it smooth, and maybe even add another coat or two of the eatery paper mâché pulp.
