Are you ready for another great homemade Halloween costume? Remember, I have showed you how to make several other easy Homemade Halloween costumes for kids. Today I want to show you how to make another fun costume – Homemade Laffy Taffy Costume.
Even if you think you are not very crafty, I assure you, anyone can make this costume. If you are looking to buy a candy bar costume, you may have trouble finding some in kids sizes. I know when I looked, I could only find skimpy adult costumes.
Our kids LOVED being candy last year for Halloween and I know yours will to! You CAN make this! Just give it a try.
Materials needs to make Homemade laffy taffy costume
- 2 yards of red felt
- 1 rectangle of purple felt
- 1 rectangle of light pink felt
- 1 rectangle of dark pink felt
- 1 rectangle of dark green felt
- 2 rectangles of light blue felt
- 1 rectangle of white felt
- Aleene’s Tacky Glue
- Cut the 2 yards of fabric in half. Hold the fabric up to your child to see where their arms would come out of the sides. Sew (or fabric glue) the sides (leaving the arm holes open).
- To make the costume look more like a candy wrapper, I cut zig zags across the top and bottom of the felt. Sew (or glue) along the top, leaving about 12-inches open for your child’s head. I also cut a slit down the back of the head opening to make it easier to put on.
- For the Wonka and Laffy Taffy portion I did print out the graphic from online and enlarged it until it was the size I wanted. This part took me a little bit of time, but it only has to take as long as you want it to (depending on how detail-oriented you are).
- I cut the strawberries and stems by hand, making a sort of rounded triangle.
- Be sure to glue all of the felt down with plenty of Aleene’s Tacky Glue. You don’t want letters or anything falling off when the kids are out trick or treating.
What do you think? Do you think you can make this Homemade Laffy Taffy Costume for your kids this Halloween? You can apply this trick to ANY candy costume idea.
Stay tuned for another fun candy costume idea, but in the meantime, you may want to ask your kids what their favorite candy is. 😉
