Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has won Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards! So cool and totally deserved!
In this post I’ll show you how to make your own Spider-Man costume from a basic hoodie and create a coordinating felt mask! Print off the costume designer worksheet and have your resident superhero pick their designs and accents. Then open up the craft cabinet and get to work with fabric paint and glue, felt, mesh, iron-on and anything else you can find. My older kids each made their own designs and we also recreated a Spider-Gwen costume for my daughter! They love their costumes and I can sense their pride about their designs.
I love the quote “Everything you say and do creates an impact.” We have been talking with the kids about that quote from the movie when they wear their hoodies! I love how simple it is for them to understand. It’s even being used in an anti-bullying campaign which is amazing!
Use the printable templates and textures as elements and inspiration for your hoodies! We kept the Blu-ray sleeve handy so the kids could pull inspiration from it!
I loved how detailed and creative they were with their designs.
Recreating their own designs on the actual sweatshirt gave my kids a huge sense of pride.
