Making your own coconut bikini top is a fun way to show off your creativity and celebrate any island-themed party. While coconut bikini tops can be difficult to make when you don't have coconuts to use, there are plenty of easy and inexpensive ways to get the style you are looking for as long as you are a little crafty and willing to spend a few minutes of your time.

Making a Coconut Bra Without Coconuts

Cut the rubber ball in half with scissors.

Cut 16 petal shapes out of the brown felt, making eight for each cup.

Paste the felt petals on the cups with liquid glue.

Trim any excess felt around the cup.

Cut two holes on opposite sides of each cup for the string straps.

Feed the straps through the holes.


  • The straps can be made into a bikini, halter top or racer back based on your preference. If there is a spout piece inside of the rubber ball, make sure to cut it out.
