I do not want to enter the contest. I just wanted to show my cupcake DIY Halloween costume fashioned from ideas on this website. Everybody loved my cupcake costume, and the best part it was super easy and fast. Believe me I have minimal sewing skills, but I am able to sew a semi straight line with my grandmothers old sewing machine.

Seriously, all I did was buy colored tulle about 6 yards and then I cut the tulle to fit around my body; you need 3 pieces one for each frosting layer. Then I folded the piece in half long ways and then in half again (I found that it added more color to the frosting). Then I sewed the sides together to form a long tube.

Next, I stuffed the tubes with poly-fill, but make sure u add less to the top section and then more to the middle layer and even more to the bottom layer; that is what makes the layers appear to get bigger. Finally for the skirt I just cut a yard of foil like fabric to the appropriate length, and sewed the sides together. Then I folded the top of the skirt over two inches and cut two slits an inch apart every 6 inches apart and strung ribbon through like a belt to cinch the waist.

Lastly, I hot glued pom-poms all over it, and made the cherry headband by hot-gluing a painted Styrofoam ball to the head band and of course adding the stem made of pipe cleaners. All in all, the cupcake DIY Halloween costume took me an hour to make.

I got this homemade cupcake costume idea from a similar cupcake submission on this site. I used a lamp shade bought for $1.00 at the Goodwill. Then I took out the metal rods from inside and cut a mini slit so my daughter could walk freely. I went over the lampshade with glitter paint so it was a subtle accent. Then I used pink felt and stitched it around the lampshade.

I made a button hole in the back, it was easier to remove the costume that way. I then glitterglued sparkles allover a Styrofoam ball and glue gunned it to a beanie hat. Final touches were pompom fuzzies glued all over the costume for sprinkle effect and stuffed the costume with the left over felt for a puff effect.

This Cupcake Costume worked great for our 1-year-old. Started with foam backing cut into a circle. Took heavier cardboard stock and folded it into an accordion and hot glued it around the foam board. Took batting and glued that to the top of the foam board and then glued pompoms on top for sprinkles. Took some ribbon and strung it through the foam board, wrapped it over my daughter's shoulder (to measure) and secured it on the other side of the foam.

Repeat for the other side. We just happened to have an old red infant hat, so we used that as a cherry on top. Enjoy!
