This costume literally cost $5 if I don’t count the 2 – jugs of soda we had to drink! The hardest part was figuring out how to get the water droplets out of the bottles after we rinsed them out. I ended up making a wick out of rolled paper towels and putting it in the bottle and letting it sit over night. I used silver acrylic paint and painted the inside of the bottles by rolling them around rather than the outside so that the paint couldn’t be scratched off, and criss crossed the straps to get away with out using a buckle. Other than that I followed the directions from my Inspiration Pin.
