DIY Child's Homemade Cupcake costume for less than $5
I love Halloween it is my favorite holiday of all. I always throw a huge party ever year and I am always looking for new DIY ideas.
This is a Child Costume, but you could use the same overall idea to make an Adult costume I'm sure.
Sometimes I make costumes with my kids others are decorations or party games. I also like to do things on the cheap. Here I will show you some inexpensive costumes I have done to make Halloween even more awesome.
First up my cupcake costume.
Here is what you will need:
An Old Lamp Shade
Pink Spray Paint
Hot Glue & Glue Gun
White Knee Highs
( or maybe you have something at home you can use but you can get an entire bag of Craft/Poly Fill for under $4 and save some for other DIY projects)
1 Pack craft Felt or 3-4 sheets
Brown-paper ( paper bag, etc )
I started with an old lamp shade my aunt had ,so that was free. I then spray painted it with pink paint which was $0.98 cents. I then hot glued elastic inside lampshade to hold it up on my daughter. I already had elastic but it is like a dollar at any store. I went to Walgreen's and got knee high white pantyhose the ones in the plastic gumball machine container. They were 33 cents each. I used 3 containers so around 99 cents. I stuffed the pantyhose with pillow fill from a craft store whole bag was 4 dollars but I only used about half. I tied the ends then hot glued them end to end. I then wrapped them around top of lamp shade and hot glued. Next I had her cut out sprinkles from felt I had in craft room. I bought the hat at dollar store and added a lollipop stick to top wrapped in brown ribbon. There you go easy cute costume. So all together total I spent around $4.00 .
