Becoming the undead

If you’re still in need of a costume, zombies are always a popular option. To become a zombie, you can use things already found in your house.


Supplies needed:
  • Plain t-shirt
  • Jeans
  1. Cut holes in t-shirt.
  2. Make a “blood” dye for the clothes by mixing 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon flour in a pot. Boil, then simmer on low for 15 minutes then cool for 5 minutes. Stir in a package of red Kool-Aid.
  3. Pour the “blood” near the holes in the shirt and allow it 24 hours to dry.
  4. Wear jeans and roll one pant leg up to make a disheveled look
