Last Minute Boys Construction Outfit Idea

contruction, custom, kids, last minute kids customs,

Welcome back to a new week. How was your weekend? Mine was filled with shopping on  and a lot of organizing. I organized underneath the kitchen sink, the shelves in the bathroom, the pantry and the kitchen drawers. I am exhausted. There was no break right after because it was bath time for my son and then bed time. It's crazy how the fast time flies sometimes.

Last last Friday, I had to go to come up with two princess outfits and one construction outfit with only having a few fake flowers, caution tape, sunglasses and a bucket with a shovel. (The Dollarama right by my place was not on my side that day) I already showed you what I did for my sister's outfits, if you missed it see Two Last Minute Princess Outfit Ideas.

First I had my brother put on a orange t-shirt and jeans. Here is what I had done for the rest of my brother's outfit.

I bought Caution tape for $1.25 at Dollarama

Take the Caution tape

First folder the tape until it makes or resembles a rope or ribbon. 

Slide it through the belt pant loop (I forgot what they are called lol)

Take the shovel

and slide one side through the handle.

Now tie it together.

For the bottom of the pants, I cut a piece of the Caution tape at the length of the bottom of the pants 
and taped it on.
