Find out how to make this simple yet creative Halloween costume. Follow these directions submitted by Jane M. and you can dress up as a bed bug.

Materials Needed:

  • Brown or black sweatsuit or clothing
  • Small Blanket
  • Pillow
  • Antanna Headband (Easy to make)
  • Safety Pins

Instructions:
Put on the brown or black sweatsuit. Use safety pins to attach the blanket and pillow to your back. Put the pillow up by your head and then spread the blanket down over your back and legs. Pin them down the arms too so that the blanket spreads out if you lift your arms. You want to make your back look like a bed.

Put on your antenna headband and you are ready to go!
