Last January, my daughter had an assignment in school. They needed to wear DIY superhero costumes. I asked her and she said she wanted to wear a wonder woman costume. Although I was VERY excited to make a superhero costume for her, I didn’t know how to make a toddler wonder woman costume. So I went to google and looked at several toddler wonder woman costumes available for sale and tried to imagine how I would turn the stuff she already has into a costume. Today, I’ll be sharing how to make a toddler wonder woman costume like a pro (even if you’re not good with crafts) from stuff you already have!
There’s a giveaway at the end of this post. You can win an iPhone 8 + Fenty beauty! Make sure to check it out!

How To Make A Toddler Wonder Woman Costume
Here are the steps I took to make a toddler wonder woman costume. I’ve broken them down per item of clothing to make it easier for you.
Wonder Woman Top
- Lay down the top on a flat surface.
- Cut up the yellow duct tape and start sticking it on the front of the top to form the bottom “W”. NOTE: Don’t worry about making the wings’ edges slanted at this point.
- Use the yellow duct tape again to add the 2 horizontal lines above the wings of the bottom “W”. NOTE: Make sure that they are longer than the wings of the bottom “W”.
- Using the yellow duct tape, add the top “W”. NOTE: Make sure that the wings of the top “W” is longer than the middle wings and the wings of the bottom “W”.
- Once you have the Wonder Woman insignia in place, start cutting the edges of the wings, starting from the top, to make them slanted.
Wonder Woman Skirt
- Create a document using Microsoft Word or Pages, and add a star shape on the document. Format the star such that it’s in the right size that you need it to be.
- Once you’re happy with the size, copy and paste the star until the entire page is filled with it. Print it on the construction paper.
- Cut out the stars; and using the glue gun and glue stick, attach the stars on the skirt. NOTE: You will also be using the star to trace the stars for the tiara and cuffs so make sure to make an extra one for this purpose.
- Measure the height of the waist band and cut out the gold glitter foam sheet in that size. Stick the gold glitter foam sheet on the waist band. NOTE: If the skirt’s waist band is made of elastics, make sure to only cover the front part of the skirt with the glitter foam sheet.
Wonder Woman Tiara
- Lay the gold glitter foam sheet in a landscape orientation (horizontally) on a flat surface.
- Using the ruler, measure one inch from the bottom on both ends and mark it.
- Using the ruler, get the middle of the glitter foam sheet and mark it.
- Once you’ve determined the middle of the glitter foam sheet, on that spot, measure 1.5 inch from the bottom and mark it.
- Connect all 3 dots to form a triangle and cut it.
- Using the star template that you created from Microsoft Word or Pages, trace it on the back of the red glitter foam sheet and cut it. Peel off the back of the star and stick it on the middle of the tiara.
- To find out how long you should cut the gold elastic, hold it against the tiara, and measure your child’s head. Mark the area where you should cut the gold elastic.
- Cut up a piece of the gold elastic that’s slightly longer than the one you measured to give an allowance for the part that’s going to be attached to the tiara. Attach the gold elastic, while making sure that it fits, using glue gun to the back of the foam sheet to finish off the tiara.
Wonder Woman Cuffs
- Measure 2-3 inches from your child’s wrist to determine how big the cuffs should be.
- Cut the paper towel or tissue cardboard tube according to the size that you measured on the first step.
- Cut the cardboard tube vertically in half.
- Cut the gold glitter foam sheet in the exact size each cardboard tube is in. Stick it on the cardboard tube.
- Using the star template that you created from Microsoft Word or Pages, trace it on the back of the red glitter foam sheet and cut it. Peel off the back of the star and stick it on the middle of each cuff.
- Attach the gold elastic using the glue gun to the back of the cardboard tube to finish off the cuffs.
Wonder Woman Cape
- For my daughter’s cape, I used an old pillow case. If you don’t have one, cut the red cloth in rectangle making sure that it’s the right size for your child.
- Cut a small red elastic and attach it to the corners of the pillow case (or cloth) using the glue gun to finish off the cape.
