I’m on an Inside Out roll after creating homemade Anger and Fear costumes. The boys next request is for Bing Bong. Riley’s imaginary friend, Bing Bong is definitely my favorite character from the movie. I MIGHT be creating a Bing Bong Costume but his crazy colorful attire scares me a little, what if I can’t pull it off?!?
So I’m starting with a simple project, something you would need for a Bing Bong Costume or even for a Bing Bong disneybound. Bing Bong’s flower lapel pin is super easy to make with just a few inexpensive supplies.
Bing Bong Flower Pin Supplies
- Small button pin
- Foam craft sheets: dark green, light green, yellow, orange, red, pink and light blue
- Glue gun
I started by pulling up an image of Bing Bong on my computer and and zooming in until the flower was the size of the flower pin I wanted to create. Then I created a petal template using the image. Once I had a petal shape I liked, I used it to cut a petal out of each color except dark green. Cut a circle out of the dark green foam for the center of the flower.
Arrange the petals on the pin first, to make sure you like the design before you start hot gluing them on. Note the color order of Bing Bong’s pin as well.
The last step is to hot glue the green circle on the center of the pin.
That’s it. I made two of them in under 10 minutes.
The pin was easy enough to make. Should I try and make a Bing Bong costume? Do you think I am up to the challenge?!?
