I am so excited to share this adorable DIY fish costume today! If you want to dress your lil kid up as the cutest catch, you’ll want to check out this DIY baby fish costume!
I was really excited about this costume. Luke’s favorite thing is going to the aquarium – so it was natural for me to want to make him a fish costume!
This was the most involved of the costumes that I made him this year – but it was still really easy to make. All you need is felt and glue, as well as the onesie!
DIY Baby Fish Costume
To make this costume, you will need:
To make this costume, cut all of the pieces out of the felt. You can use a Cricut cutting machine or trace the patterns and cut by hand with scissors.
Glue the tail and fin onto the back of the onesie and allow to dry.
Flip the onesie and layer the scales and glue. Allow to dry.
Place an eyeball on each half of the hat. Glue and glue together and allow to dry.
