Bingo Card Costume

Follow these simple instructions to make a Bingo Card costume for Halloween.

Time: Less than one hour

Effort: Quick and easy — no sewing required


  • 2 large sheets of poster board
  • Permanent markers (black, brown)
  • Bingo card (for reference)
  • Ping pong balls
  • Headband
  • Black turtleneck and sweatpants
  • Yarn
  • Highlighter
  • Black markers
  • Glue

Instructions: For an adult-sized person, use two large sheets of poster board for the front and back of the costume. If a child will be wearing the costume, you'll have to cut the poster board to fit. Look at a real bingo card, and copy it onto each piece of the poster board. Punch holes at the upper edge, near the shoulders, and tie the two pieces together with the yarn.

Put numbers on the card at random, but in one direction highlight each number to emphasize a bingo. With a black marker, put numbers on a few of the ping-pong balls and glue them (with very good, strong glue) to the headband, and to each other. The bingo cards should be worn over black or dark-colored clothing.
