For children looking to be something fun and not too scary this Halloween season, this DIY praying mantis costume is a great alternative. The costume is easily made by hand using card to create a whimsical insect outfit.

Praying mantis isn't a costume idea most have when they think of Halloween meaning this outfit will most likely be the only one of its kind at any party. The costume features several parts including a mask, leaf-like fins and stick legs. Most of the pieces are made using bright green card or felt and the mask is fastened onto a tuque hat for easy wear. The costume is great for kids to make with parents allowing children to customize the shape and overall design of their buggy ensemble.
