Homemade Hot Cocoa for Santa Halloween Costume Idea

Homemade Hot Cocoa for Santa Halloween Costume Idea

My granddaughter was competing in a Christmas Pageant and needed a Christmas costume. I had a homemade Hot Cocoa for Santa Halloween costume idea. It was a hit and she won Grand Supreme!! I took a big plastic planter cut the bottom off, painted it and decorated it. Molded the handle out of that light weight fast drying material and then glued and screwed it into the side of the cup. Attached brown shiny material to cover her shoulders for the hot cocoa and glued some white pompoms glitzed up with stones for marshmallows.

I then took a stretch white hat and glued batting all over it and attached a thick white satin ribbon to tie under her chin. I then cut a big saucer with a hole in it. Covered it with Christmas material and batting underneath it to give texture. Put a nice gold shiny trim around it and glued to the bottom of the cup. I also attached suspenders to the inside of the cup; this will hold the cup up on her shoulders.

I took a small piece of foam and covered with chocolate chip material and then added some different size brown pompoms to look as chocolate chips. Cut out a huge spoon and spray painted gold and glued on. I made a wish list out of scrap book lined paper and glued on. Added white tights and white slippers with white pompoms and glitz on them and you have a perfect Hot Cocoa for Santa Costume!!

Homemade Santa's Reindeer Group Halloween Costume

While in college, a group of my sorority sisters and I were all broke and trying to figure out what to be for a Halloween party. My friend Eliza, and I went to the store to look at the costumes in hopes to find some inspiration of something we could mimic. However, most of the Halloween costumes were picked over and the store was actually starting to put out Christmas decorations.

We saw the reindeer antler headbands and the rest of the Homemade Santa's Reindeer Group Halloween Costume just fell into place after recruiting 7 other girls. We all wore brown fish-net tights, cow boy boots, red running shorts, brown shirts (and we used iron-on letters to put our names on the back- Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, etc.), jingle bell earrings, and the girl who was Rudolf wore a clown nose.

The costume was such a hit people still talk about it!
