How to Make an Adult Pope Costume

This is a fun and easy to make, NO SEW costume!

Making your adult pope costume:

Start with a pair of Adult Footed Pajamas

  • Make the Pope Hat Use posterboard & staples.
  • Cut 2 large, rounded triangles, staple them to the front and back of a posterboard brim (tape over the staples so they don't hurt your head).
  • Embellish with foil or metallic fabric.
  • Get crazy, glue lovely things to it - or maybe macaroni to it or make glue gun swirls then spray paint gold over your artistry.
  • Make a Pope Scepter from posterboard, styrofoam ball, tin foil and metallic fabric.
  • Roll a posterboard tube, cut 4 2" slits in the end.
  • Cut 2 posterboard ovals, cut slits half way into them & insert one into the other (see pic at right) - then slide them into the slits in the scepter handle.
  • Cover with foil & fabric.
  • Cover styrofoam ball with foil (or just make a foil ball) and tape to the end.
  • Duct tape can be employed for an interesting effect.
  • Make the Popes Scarf Use white felt (available 6 foot wide for about $5 a yard from fabric stores) and gold foil or fabric.
  • Cut a long white Scarf, glue, tape or staple embellishments.
  • Be nice at the party and bless the wine and marry people who seem to be made for each other.
