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!
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!
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!
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.
