If you love Halloween, then it’s an exciting day today! I’ve joined with 80+ other bloggers to bring you a whole pile of DIY Halloween costumes including my simple candy corn costume!
I’m teaming up with Jamie Dorobek and her handmade Halloween costume site, Really Awesome Costumes, to bring you tons of easy ideas to craft up DIY Halloween costumes for everyone including your pets, family costumes, and even your trunk!
Before you check out all the awesome costumes, let me show you how to make this simple candy corn costume! To start, you’ll need 1/2 yard of orange, yellow, and white felt. Decide how long you want your costume to be then divide that length by three. Cut each color of fabric into equal amounts to total the full length.
Sew the long ends of each strip together, yellow to orange to white.
Use a saucer or small plate to trace a hole for the face and cut it out.
Fold the front stitched piece in half and cut out a candy corn shape. Be sure you cut it wide enough that it will cover your child’s body. Cut the back in the same fashion. Stitch the edges together, leaving the bottom open and leaving openings for arm holes.
That’s it! You have a super simple, super fast candy corn costume!
