Recylce Costume




I think that our planet is in need of help. So i came up with an idea that looks cool and sends a message to those who set their eyes on it.

Step 1: Materials

-Recylce Bin or an old garbage bin
-Paint Marker (if needed)
-An old pair of suspenders
-4 key rings

Step 2: Cut

To be able to use the bin as a costume you need to cu tthe bottom out. To do so just use the cutting bit on the Dremel tool. Once that is finished make sure to sand the edges so you dont get cuts.

Step 3: Paint

Depending on your bin, you may not need to do this step. My bin was just a blue garbage bin, so i needed to paint the recycle symbol on it. This part was easy for me, because im a relativily good artist. 

Step 4: Add the Suspenders

Step 5: Trick-or-Treat

Go out and have fun. But make sure you go with some on wlse.

Maybe to hold your loot (candy), you could use an old t-shirt and use it as a screen type thing. It could go around your legs in the bin. But this would only work if you were very skinny or the size of your bin. You could also add hooks on the sides to hang your loot.

    Nice job!  I'd give out extra candy for that costume.
