DIY Fidget Spinner Halloween Costume

This Halloween, Dress Up as a Parent's Worst Nightmare: The Fidget Spinner

Like it or not, the fidget spinner was everywhere this year. Though its exact origins are still up for debate, the anti-anxiety gadget became especially popular in the Spring. Seemingly overnight, fidget spinners were suddenly everywhere — at schools, in workplaces, and on your commute. Shortly thereafter, schools began banning the toys, as they were distracting students. If you're up to the challenge, supersize the fidget spinner to dress up as the year's most ubiquitous toy for Halloween.

How to Create It Yourself

Want to blissfully spin your way through Halloween? Here's what you'll need for your fidget spinner costume:

  • A cardboard box
  • Foam boards
  • Your paint color of choice
  • A paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Cotton string
  • Scissors

Prepare to get a little crafty with this costume. To start, you're going to want to trace the fidget spinner shape onto two sizable pieces of cardboard. Once you're satisfied with your shape, cut out the shapes using scissors or a box cutter. On two foam boards, trace and cut out a smaller circle that will act as the center cap. Glue each center cap onto a fidget spinner cutout. Paint the cutouts with your color of choice.


On either side of the fidget spinner, poke out a small hole using scissors or a hole punch, and weave your cotton string through the holes. Repeat on the second cutout and tie the strings together in the middle. You should be left with a sandwich board so that the front and back of the fidget spinner hang from your shoulders. Bonus points awarded to anyone who walks around with actual fidget spinners while wearing their fidget spinner costume. Dare us to say fidget spinner one more time? Fidget spinner!
