If you’re anything like me, early September is prime “what are we all going to be for Halloween” brainstorming time. Last year I was convinced we would make an amazing version of The Munsters. Me as Lily, my husband is a perfect Herman and if anyone was ever Eddie Munster it’s my son. That never quite panned out, Teno ended up being “baby billionaire” and Tony and I were lucky we managed to get dressed in the morning. So I think my dream of following previously posted advice about making my own cupcake costume is well… pretty much unrealistic. I know we have a lot of crafty mama readers, though, and you’re exactly who I thought of when I saw these instructions on Wondertime for making a kid’s cupcake costume. So gather up your materials and get to work! I want to see done damn adorable photos come Halloween!
- 2 wire wreath forms (1 large, with a diameter similar to a bushel basket, and 1 small, just big enough to fit over your child’s head)
- Bailing wire (available at most hardware stores)
- Wire snips
- 2 yards fluffy white fabric
- 2 yards of 1-inch-wide elastic (for the “frosting” and suspenders to hold up bottom of cupcake)
- Pastel-colored felt squares (for making confetti dots)
- Bushel basket
- 2 yards brown fabric
- 1 yard white felt (or ribbed white material)
- White stocking or knit hat
- White tights and shoes
- Cardboard paper-towel roll
