House Painter Costume

Follow these simple directions to create a House Painter costume.

House Painter Costume

Time: 1 hour

Effort: Easy - no sewing required


  • White overalls (denim okay, but white is best)
  • Disposable white painter's cap from hardware or paint store (you may have to take a small tuck in the back to make it tighter)
  • Rag
  • Metal paint can
  • 1 or 2 brushes
  • Paints, any kind

Instructions: Lay down newspaper, spread out overalls, rag, and hat on it. Gather all your paints. Splatter clothes with paint, a little or a lot. When paint is dry, you're ready to go. Stick a paintbrush or two in your pocket. Hang a rag out of the pocket. Put your hat on, and you're ready to go.
