Parents have proven time and again that no amount of budget constraints can stop them from making their kids stand out, whether it’s for a school activity, Halloween, or a birthday party. So we’re always impressed when we see moms busting out their creativity for their little ones — just like Nicole Aquino, who DIY’d this adorable astronaut costume for her son Maxs first birthday party.

Nicole, a mom of two who works in event management, is a pretty creative mama. So when she browsed online and saw that astronaut costumes cost too much for one-time use, she decided to go through Pinterest instead to find a design she can DIY.

She saw one that was easy enough to make which required only a few materials. “Luckily, my son had plain white pants and a onesie that still fit him. It had suspenders stitched in, but that was easy enough to remove,” she shares in an interview with SmartParenting.com.ph. “[Then,] I thought of adding a personal touch by making Maxs his own logo and a NASA-inspired patch.”

2. She had to sew the bag straps as the material doesn’t hold well when glued.

3. She also glued the patches to the onesie.

Lastly, she glued black felt cloth around the wrist cuffs of the onesie and at the bottom of the pants. She also glued an adjustable bag strap on the waistband to look like a belt.

Simple, right? What’s nice about Nicole’s DIY is that you can even make the same costume for older kids — just replace the white onesie with a white shirt! Galing!
