My kids adore seeing ridiculous things everywhere, and one of their favorites is the inflatable tube man that dances by itself on the side of the road. I made an inflated tube-man costume before Halloween.

This inflatable tube-man is my silliest costume to date but Quinn also declared it the most fun. Before I even go into how I made it, you need to see the video of it in action, so you know why you NEED to make it too.

So fun, right?!? Luckily it’s totally no-sew and you can be put together in an afternoon! Keep reading to see how I made this wacky waving inflatable tube man costume.

Make Inflatable Tube Man Arms

Start by cutting off the top and bottom of 2 hampers and then just the bottom of the third hamper. Use this extra material to create long red arm tubes.

Cut wide rectangles out of your material and then fold and “hem” into tubes using adjustable hem tape. It works like double-sided tape.

Attach Inflatable Tube Man Arms

Adding the arms to the costume is a little tricky. You want to have someone try it on first to determine where to cut the armholes.

Once you decide where the arms should be, cut the armholes smaller than you think you need. You can always make them a little bit bigger if necessary.
