This DIY costume has made it’s way around the internet, and for good reason. Use some paper and duct tape to cover up a 2 liter soda bottle, and attach it to a pacifier with some hose, add a little mask and you’ve got a scuba diver! You can even cut out some flipper-shaped felt to cover their tiny shoes to make it even more legit.

7. Newborn Mermaid Tail and Shell Top
