DIY approach to pirate costumes

Just make sure you are backed with a creative imagination and easy-to-find materials like a used tracksuit paints, horizontal striped t-shirts, red sash belt, pirate eye patch, crayons or pens and a pirate sword. Simply cut the tracksuit pants, and cut a leg shorter than the other one. Add to the costume the selected stripe t-shirt, a red shirt is best. Once ready, you can focus on the accessories by making a pirate eye patch an adding the red sash belt and headscarf. Add some facial scars using a pen and show off the sword. With these simple steps, your kids can channel their ‘inner pirates’ in them.
