Crayola Crayons Halloween Costume

Crayola Crayons Halloween Costume

I got the bright idea of a Crayola crayons Halloween costume. My friends and I could get as many people together as we wanted or just rock the costumes ourselves! Had so much fun with my best friends/roommate in these costumes and got SO many compliments! The perfect costume for all ages and sizes!

After a much too long trip to Walmart we found materials;

1) Felt for the body of the crayon (color of your choice!) & for the hat
2) Black thin fabric for the "crayola" logo
3) thick black ribbon for the stripes on the top and bottom
4) A basic party hat covered in the same felt your costume is made of
5) Velcro strip to connect the fabric on the side
*optional - it gets chilly up in Boone, NC so we wore black leggings under the costume

Basically, get the measurements of your soon-to-be crayon and cut the felt to the appropriate size. I hand drew a stencil for the "Crayola" and cut all the pieces at once for a more uniform look. (This took a while, be patient). Hot glue the "Crayola" logo and the black ribbon to the felt as seen in the picture.

Cover the party hat with the felt color. Cut the Velcro strip into smaller pieces (it's easier to make a more form fitting costume). The Velcro can be self-adhering but we found it more promising to stay on if we hot glued the Velcro as well. Place the Velcro in the appropriate places!

Add some black tennis shoes for comfort (or heels for style, ladies) and TA-DA!

But yours is amazing. now all my friends can get together for halloween and yet we will all be different due to the different colors. can't wait for halloween this year. it is going to be the best when we go to the halloween dance. omg! can't wait! thanks guys. i'll upload a picture when our outfits are done!!!

crayon costumes
by: candylover

hi i love your costumes! i'm doing that this year, only i didn't make it out of fabric. that would have been the smart idea...i used this poster board thing. the sides are riveted together, and i painted the boards and made a hat and just got green stuff to wear underneath. (that's the color i am)
yours looks great, it's really cool.

This is what my friend did for Halloween this year. She and this other girl got together and made these really cute M&M costumes out of regular blue and green tunic shirts. They had the eyes and everything! all the little stuff on it (eyes, mouth, and logo) were black felt they were socute and everyone loved them!! :)

wow amazing!
by: Anonymous

I LOVE this idea I was only gonna do this with 2 of my friends but now I could add all of the friends I would ever want thank you guys so for the awesome idea! :)

p.s. how much did all of this cost??

by: Alyssa

Each costume cost us about $25.00 to make (including the leggings). I had the hot glue gun and some spare Velcro lying around fortunately, but you can get those for a relatively cheap price at a craft store or Wal-Mart. The fabric costs really depend on where you get it from. The leggings are optional but we got ours from K-Mart for around $10.00!
Hope everyone's costumes turned out well!

by: Anonymous

what if you get cold really easily? and u want to put something over your shoulders? but i love the costumes!

by: Mandy

In response to the last one, You can probably just wear a black long sleeve shirt underneath. But also, I really love this costume! Me and my friend are going to be crayons but we were planing on sewing and i guess we don't have to! THANKS!

Easier way

For me, its easier to just do with poster board, and just color on the crayola. Oh and should add the color "Tickle Me Pink" or "Forest Green". For the hats, just put poster board over a party hat. Hope this makes easier. But still love your guys costume. It looks cooler, just to harder. Love from the Czechlaslavalkian gal learning English!

hands down creative
by: shumlex

wowzerrrss! you girls get a gold start for creativity! this is so awesome. We are def doing this now. The helpful tips on how to make it was a huge stress reliever. Cant wait to get started on our costumes. Now we don't have to be pussy cats anymore. MEOW!

In our high school, it’s a tradition for all and only the seniors to dress up for Halloween. My friends and I decided we wanted something different but where everyone could tell what we were. So we decided to be a Homemade Box of Crayons Group Costume! Everyone picked a color they wanted and we made a giant Crayola box and all walked around school inside the box. It was inexpensive, fun and different from what our school usually does!

We made the box out of display poster board, tape two together and painted it like a box! For our individual costumes we each bought a different color poster board and then painted it like the wrapping on a crayon! We all got our respective color party hats. We then rolled the poster board attached string so it could rest on our shoulders and we had a crayon!

Coolest Crayola Crayons Costume 2

Crayola Crayons Costume

Crayola Crayons Costume

My roommates and I decided that we did not want to be a store bought regular costume. We bought black felt fabric and the specific colors we wanted from the local fabric store and picked up the felt and Velcro.

We also printed out the name CRAYOLA from a website and used it as a stencil for our Crayola crayons costume. Needless to say it was a huge hit!

love the costume idea. me and my friends are definetly going to do this for Halloween this year. even though it is only August 27 it is best to start early so you don't have to rush and if you mess up you can always start again. and you can make it look even better the more time you have to make it. love it so much. can't wait for this Halloween. It is going to be so much fun. we can totally show all our cheerleader neighbors. they think their better than us but this is gonna show them. thanks so much for this amazing idea.

me and my mate decided to go as crayons to a fancy dress party, and this was the kind of thing i was looking for. we were going to get morph suits but i had no idea how to show that we were crayons, so the stenciling thing with the 'crayola' logo/name is a big help. :)

Crayola Crayons Halloween Costume

Crayola Crayons Halloween Costume

We wanted to be something different but yet as a group. It ended up being the two of us. This Crayola crayons Halloween costume was something decent, cute and very unique. We definitely got everyone's attention.

We started with the homemade dress, and then snowballed into the wig, make-up, boots etc.
