Updated on November 3, 2011

home made hula dance costume

Craft a kid's costume that works for Halloween, a school play
or even a luau with this hula dancer costume. 

What you'll need:

  • Old half slip (ask your mother first)
  • Crepe paper strips in different colors
  • Stapler
  • Lei (see tips below)
  • Hawaiian top or tank top bathing suit (with appropriate designs)

How to make it:

  1. Get crepe paper of different colors, cut out lots and lots of strips.
  2. Staple the strips around the tops edge of the slip, making sure there are no big blank spaces.
  3. Wear a Hawaiian lei, Hawaiian top or tank top bathing suit to complete the outfit.


Try to find a lei from a thrift shop, dollar store or ask your friends, or the girls' department at the toy store may have some. You may also be able to find a lei at a paper supply store (such as Paper Warehouse).
