What you’ll need; a flannel shirt, blue jeans, a life jacket, a pair of rubber boots, fishing pole (real or made from a stick or branch), a floppy fishing hat, some cardboard, silver spray paint, a black marker, 12″ piece of yarn, and a hole punch.
Cut four fish out of cardboard. Spray paint silver on both sides, and let dry. Use a marker to draw an “X” in place of the fish’s eyes. Punch hole near the mouth of each fish and string from a piece of yarn. Carry fishing pole in hand and sling fish over the shoulder.
What you’ll need; Black sweat shirt, sweat pants, eyeliner, and lipstick
Draw some whiskers on face with black eyeliner and add some pink lipstick to nose for added touch.
What you’ll need; a green t-shirt and pants (check the thrift stores), green and red felt, a feather, and some cardboard.
Cut the pants with a jagged edge below the knee. Make a simple cone-shaped hat out of sturdy felt. Attach a piece of red fabric around the rim of the hat and secure a feather inside. Use the cardboard to cut out a wooden looking sword.
