This year I decided to make a Cupcake DIY Costume.
I made the bottom out of a cardboard box that I opened up and folded accordion style and then hot glued this silver tulle to the creases.

The top was made out of quilt stuffing that I cut to about 2 inches thick. Then I made a tube of pink tulle by ironing the two ends together with the no sew hem product. I then stuffed the tubes with the quilt stuffing.

Once I had the tube stuffed I started hot gluing in a circular pattern around the cardboard. I used the hemline as my glue line and that seemed to make it stick better.

Once I got to the 3rd or second ring of "icing" I attached two pieces of ribbon as suspenders to the cardboard. This helped give the top layers of icing some extra support when gluing.

Then once everything was glued onto the cardboard base I was able to attach my sprinkles. These were made out of a Styrofoam ball that I cut up and painted with acrylic paint. Again I just hot glued these on to empty spaces.

The cherry on top is a Styrofoam ball and the stem and leaf are also made out of the extra Styrofoam from the sprinkles. I attached the cherry to a piece of flat cardboard and then attached that to a pink headband. I did have to bobby pin this down to my head to keep it from flopping back and forth.

Who wants to spend all Halloween weekend in a boring, store-bought, slutty X costume? This year I decided to be a fancy cupcake. I made this Homemade Cupcake DIY Costume from a child's craft apron, hot pink nylon fabric (about 3 yards), heavy-duty aluminum foil, poster board, jewel/gem stickers, safety pins, fabric glue and ribbon.

Since I'm terrible at sewing I decided to cut the fabric into long, thick strips and safety pin it to the apron in large twisted bunches for the "frosting". I fluffed the fabric so you can't see the pins from the front side. For the foil cupcake bottom I cut the poster board into a rectangle with a curved top and bottom then covered it with the foil and folded it accordion-style. I pinned it to the bottom of the fabric area with safety pins. I added some glittery ribbon and a bow with fabric glue.

The original apron strings were too short so I cut them and glued on matching ribbon. I added gem sticker "sprinkles" and a scrapbook "sweet" sticker. I also made a matching headband with the leftover gems and cupcake-shaped eraser.

I spent about $20 and 4 hours on this costume and had an awesome Halloween!

Coolest Homemade Cupcake Costume 41

I used a $2.00 laundry basket that I cut in half for this Homemade Cupcake Costume. I folded 3 sheets of pink poster board and glued them around the edge of the basket. I used a large sheet of quilt polyfill and folded it 4 times to make a thick square. Placed cupcake base in the center and rolled the edges of polyfill in to be glued to the poster board.

Flip cupcake over and cut a "X" in the center. Not too big! About 7". It will stretch to where you can step through it and wiggle into place. Add pom-poms for sprinkles and tie wide ribbon to the laundry basket to make straps! Wear over a white t-shirt! Headband is made from a pink headband and giant pipe-cleaner!

The Frosting

Just wondering if you could give more detail about the top part of the costume. I wanted to make this for Halloween.

To answer the girls question above. Me and my friend made this costume last night and the top portion is really easy. We had a harder time with the bottom and I'm still unsure how she was able to use glue for the basket and construction paper because it was not sticking.

Anyways when doing the frosting you are going to get a roll of polyfill. You can find that at hobby lobby or any craft store for like 5 bucks. You are going to fold the polyfill sheet four times to make it thick then place it on the top and start tucking a little into the inside of the basket. You will see when you do that it starts to look just like an overflow of icing. The top part we were actually able to use the hot glue gun. We just glued the polyfill to the back of the base of the cupcake instead of the actual basket because you want it to look like the icing is dripping over the cupcake holder. Once you get it all glued cut an x in the middle. We just stuck our hand underneath the basket, pulled up the fabric and cut a little x. We didn't even cut a full 7 inches cause it stretches alot. Hope this helps!

Please explain more in detail when making the frosting. It's a bit confusing when you say fold into 4 square an roll the poly fill to edge? Hard to picture that?? Also center of the base? Please be more detailed on directions, makes it hard for people to picture it. Maybe make a video on how to make this cute Halloween costume.

Coolest Cupcake Halloween Costume Design 45

This homemade cupcake Halloween costume design is made of an old lamp shade in the bottom with paper folded like an accordion sewed onto the lamp shade.

The pink parts are old grandma's curtains (braces and tube top), the white tulle and lace is a gigantic skirt made of tulle just pressed upside-down in the lamp shade.

The cherry on top is made of a vintage hat; I simply stapled a bit of cherry red stretch velvet inside of it and made a tiny hole on top of the hat to insert a wire (green fabric glued onto the wire).
