Homemade Caryola Crayon Costume

Homemade Caryola Crayon Costume

This Homemade Crayola Crayon Costume is made using a hula hoop as a base with red and black PVC, a stapler, a glue gun and LOTS of hot glue. I used PVC as it was for an outdoor festival where rain may have ruined a costume.

To start I cut the red PVC to fit the hula hoop and made sure it fitted me in height. I made straps from strips of red PVC stapled to the hula hoop.

I cut out the wavy shape at the top and bottom of the crayon using the black PVC and also cut out the crayola logo using layers of black and red PVC. For added authenticity I also cut the word "red" out in black PVC to add to the side of the crayon.

All the PVC was stuck to the main red piece using the hot glue gun and the cylinder shape was attached to the hula hoop using my fabric stapler.

For the crayon tip I made a cone shape from remnants of the red PVC and again glue and staples were used. I also added a strap to hold it in place.

For added effect I also wore a red top underneath and red wellies and a red wig to ensure I was red all over.

It was an ace festival and I got a lot of praise for the outfit- many of whom thought it was shop bought.

Costing about £20 to make I thought it was a bargain.

Homemade Crayola Crayons Costumes

These Crayola Crayon costumes were made entirely by 3 university students.

We borrowed a sewing machine from friends of ours and made 3 dresses in different colours. We then bought black felt and cut out strips to create the squiggles. We cut out an oval and cut the crayola sign out of it. We glued on the felt with fabric glue, added Velcro at the top to keep it together and put elastic along the top.

To add to the effects, we glued material onto a party hat to create the tip of the crayon. Throughout the night we got many compliments and everyone loved our costumes. We won the Best Costumes contest at our Halloween party. When people asked us where our other crayons were, we said we were the package of 3 you get at the restaurant with the kids colouring menus.

If you have any questions about how this was done, feel free to comment on this photo and I will hopefully get back to you as soon as I can.

Hi I love your costumes, they are amazing. I'm doing the race for life for cancer research in June. My name is Neola and everyone calls me crayola as a joke. I want me to have the last laugh at this race for life and dress as a pink crayon. Please tell me details on how to make this. I would be very grateful.

Hey guys - These are really awesome costumes. What was the material that you used? It looks like felt wouldn't be that fitting on the body. And also, how did you make the costumes stay on... by sewing the back? Thanks!

Homemade Crayons Costumes

This year was my nephew's first Halloween. I wanted to do something that all of my kids and my nephew could do together. I decided to make them all into Homemade Crayons Costumes. I bought them each solid color outfits. I used iron on letters to put Crayola down their shirts. Their pants have their color name on them.

I found solid color party hats for their crayon tips. The kids didn't like the strings on the hats though. So I bought winter hats and stitched the party hat on top. When we went trick or treating I tied a poster of a Crayola crayon box (which I had blown up with a poster maker) onto the side of the stroller. They were SO cute.

Homemade Crayola Crayon Costume

My daughter told me last Spring that when Halloween comes around, she wants to be a crayon. A crayon? Yes a Crayola crayon. With some thought, a plan, and lots of school glue, her Homemade Crayola Crayon Costume is a reality.

About 8 sheets of lime green bristol board from the dollar store, a bottle of glue, some cardboard lying around the house and a permanent black marker and of course a little patience. It really stands out and the best thing about it is because it's bright green, you can't miss it in the dark. The entire costume cost me about 6 dollars to complete whatever height you want. With the costume on, my daughter is about 7 feet tall

please help!

I know,I know. I sound desperate but this is the best crayon costume I think I have ever seen and I've been looking for about a week! I would love it if someone helped me, is Bristol board the same thing as poster board? also, can you buy cardboard somewhere? and lastly how do you make the cone for the head?

bristol board is the same as big colored sheets of paper. It is at the dollar store, I ended up painting ours because the color wasn't available. The hat is made like a cone or bithday hat. make a pie shape that will go around the head, and either bobi pin it in or elastic under the chin. Good luck

Awesome costume :)

I love that costume, but is it very difficult to sit and move around in, or put on and take off? I got around that issue when I made my spider costume (number 13 in the "spider" section on this site) by wearing a black tank top underneath the shirt that I attached the spider legs to, so I could take off my spider legs when I thought they'd get in the way; for example, when I went through the haunted house that my friend Lili had set up.

It was a little difficult to get in and out of and I had to shorten it because when she tested it out my daughter had a hard time with stairs but once she was in it, she had no other problems. I also put a support inside it so the costume actually rested on her head. It was by far the best costume of the night. Was stopped by at least 20 people who wanted to take photo's of it. The following year I made her a Lego block costume which also turned out great.
