Homemade Elliott from ET #Halloween Costume #ETPhoneHome #Elliott

We like to make homemade Halloween costumes every year and this year my son will be Elliott from ET! It is a pretty simple costume to make and looks amazing! You will need the following items:
  • Red Hooded Shirt 
  • Bike Handlebars
  • Wire basket or plastic milk crate
  • White sheet or towel
  • Plush ET toy
  • Zip Ties
  • Bungee cord
First off we zip tied ET to the metal basket.  Then we took old bike handle bars and zip tied it to the basket.  Wrap a sheet, blanket, towel around ET to keep him hidden.  Attach a bungee cord around the basket and place it over your head.  This way it hangs nicely in front of you!


I picked up my basket at Target on clearance, but here is another great option: 
Wire Storage Basket $13.35 & FREE Shipping on orders over $49.

The ET plush in my photo is the one below that we purchased at Universal.

This outfit is super cute and only takes a matter of minutes to put together!!!
