##Putting together your Old Father New Year 2008 costume##

Step 1: Begin creating your costume by taking a white sheet or robe or pre-made Father Time costume and adhering headlines and photo events of 2008. You will need to print them on a good quality paper and use a gluestick or safety pins to adhere them to your costume at random. It can be as covered with events and headlines as you like or as little.

Step 4: Step into a pair of sandals and grab your hour glass and get ready to party into 2009!
