Easy Homemade Costume-Super Hero Cape

If you have a young boy, chances are you are in need of a super hero cape.  There are many options out there, but we wanted to show you an inexpensive, fast and easy option.  No sewing machine required!  And the best part is that you can attach the cape to any shirt and when the child decides they want a new color or they are done playing for the day, just pull the cape and it will come off without residue on the shirt.  Here are step by step instructions:

Items needed:

1. Plastic table cloth in the color of your choice.

2. Scissors

3. Backstage Costume Tape Dots

Cut the plastic table cloth to the size suitable for your super-hero.
TIP: If your plastic table cloth is wrinkly, try using a hair dryer to smooth it out.

Peel off two Backstage Costume Tape Dots from the sheet.  Place a dot on the two top corners of the cape.


Peel off the cut liner from the Dots.  Stick the cape directly on the back of the shirt.  That's it!  You now have a super-hero cape that was fun and easy to make.  You can also try this with just about any light-weight material.  Happy cape making!
