Superman's bright yellow belt is a cinch to make, thanks to yellow duct tape that is readily available in hardware and craft stores. Slide clasp belts, the kind usually worn by Boy Scouts, can often be found in resale shops. Accompanying a pair of blue tights and a tight-fitting blue T-shirt, this belt will deliver a punch of pizazz to a young or old Superman and will be a hit at a Halloween celebration or costume party.

Skill level:

Things you need

  1. 1

    Measure the length and width of the slide clasp belt. Multiply the width by two, and add 1/2 inch. Multiply the length by two, and add 1 inch.

  2. 2

    Cut the yellow duct tape to these measurements, adding a second piece if needed to achieve the width measurement.

  3. 3

    Remove the slide clasp from the belt. Place the belt face up on a flat surface. Press the sticky side of the duct tape onto the belt. Wrap the duct tape around the belt, keeping the seam on the wrong side of the belt.

  4. 4

    Cut a 3-inch square from a piece of poster board, and cover both sides of the square with yellow tape. Cut one corner from the square, 1 inch from the corner point.

  5. 5

    Position the square on a flat surface, with the cut-off corner representing the top edge of Superman's insignia shield. Draw the letter "S" freehand inside the shield with a red marker.

  6. 6

    Replace the slide clasp on the belt. Attach the insignia shield to the belt with double-stick tape.
