Wondering what to wear to the next luau, concerned that your "girls" might not fit properly into a pre-made piece, of just think its nifty to be able to say, "I made it myself" when people ask where you got that awesome hula costume? For under $10 you, too, can make your own coconut bra.
For this project you will need:
- a coconut
- thin leather strips or thongs for comfort, or thick twine for you masochists
- jigsaw or hand saw
- power drill or sharp pointy object
- power sander (optional)
- lacquer (optional)
Step 1: Purchase a coconut
When purchasing a coconut, you'll want to keep in mind the size of your girls. Go with your gut, and look for one as spherical as possible. Don't be afraid to hold them up to your chest in the produce section - the odd looks are kind of fun, especially if you bring a friend or two. Unwrap the coconut, slap the sticker on your cheek and you're ready to go!
