I love cupcakes and thought, what better thing to be for Halloween than a cupcake? Since you are what you eat....
I made the cupcake "tin" using 3 pink cardboard school poster boards. I used duct tape to tape all three of them together (taped the short side to the short side of the next paper). Then I folded the poster like a fan to give the appearance of a real cupcake tin. Then I duct taped the ends together. To give it the cupcake shape, I took a metal coat hanger and folded it into a circle for the top of the cupcake. I used this to support the cupcake shape. I duct taped and tied the wire onto the top portion of the cupcake.
For the bottom portion of the cupcake tin since it has to be a little smaller than the top portion), I just stapled every other "fan". I used yarn as strings to hold the cupcake up (over my shoulders). I tied these strings to the coat hanger wire on the top part of the cupcake. I bought batting from the fabric store to use as the "frosting" and I bought fuzzy balls from the fabric store to use as "sprinkles". I used fabric glue to glue the balls.
For the batting I just let it sit on the cupcake but you can also glue it. For the cherry on top, I bought a Styrofoam ball and painted it red. I went outside to get a leaf and stuck the leaf int the styrofoam. I used wire to attach the cherry onto a black headband.
Cutest little Homemade Rosie the Riveter Costume! To make this costume, I bought a plastic flower pot from the Dollar store, I made sure the pot was deep enough and wide enough for her to fit into. (Paid $1) Next, my husband used a jigsaw to cut out the bottom from the pot, but I'm sure a standard knife would do. Then sanded the edges down to make sure they wouldn't rub.
Then, I took pink silk fabric (Hobby Lobby 1yrd. $3) and ruffled it along the outside of the pot making pleats. I used a hot glue gun to simply secure it. Then folded any of the excess fabric to the inside of the top and bottom. Next took some white fabric and about 4" from the top, folded one side over and glued it in a straight line all the way around, next I put my fist above where I had just put the white fabric, and draped the remaining over it, creating a "bubble" then secured the top all the way around the inside of the top, leaving on opening in the back. Then I stuffed my "bubble" with plastic grocery bags until it proceeded to look like icing on a cupcake! Then glued the back shut.
Then, I cut out my "sprinkles" and "hearts" from felt (Hobby Lobby $5) Simply glued them where I saw fit. Next I measured my daughter in the cupcake and made suspenders from ribbon.(Hobby Lobby $2) Sprayed with a little glitter spray and voila! CUPCAKE!
