After shopping for costumes, I realized that all the costumes were starting to look the same. I wanted to do something different year, so I decided to make my boys a box of crayons. I got boxes big enough to comfortably fit on their shoulders. Thanks to hobby lobby I was able to find most of my supplies. I covered the boxes with yellow poster boards, and i covered small cups with different construction paper to resemble the crayons. I found the pointed hats at party city. I cut holes in the top and the sides for their heads and arms. Thanks to me working in a laboratory, i was able to coordinate the glasses. I must say that the project turned out to be better than expected.. My boys were the talk of the party.. And now I look forward to making more creative costumes.
This year I decided to do something different. So I decided to make individual Crayola Box Halloween Costumes. I used boxes that were big enough to fit over the boys shoulders. Then I found the poster boards from Micheals and Hobby Lobby. I used felt and construction paper to wrap around small cups to make the crayons.
The hats came from party city and the glasses were compliments of my job. I was really excited with the end results, and the boys were the talk of the party..I am looking forward to doing something different each year so stay tuned folks.
I made my RED Crayola few years back, when I need a costume ASAP I usually wear this and it grabs the kids attention as soon as they see me. Last year my daughter was into watching Percy Jackson movie and she love medusa character and she wanted to be Medusa for halloween. We bought a Medusa hat from Diddams and goddess costume from Rite-Aid on sale and got the cool glasses from a Hallween store and we added snakes on the goddess gown to give it more effect to the costume.
We made this Homemade Crayola Costume for our daughter. We used a television box, paints and 99 cent store crayola piggy banks for the crayons. We added some pictures. My daughter won first prize at one party and many people loved her costume! Of note...we had her arms on top because the box was to big. We used straps inside to hold this on her shoulders. We dressed her in all purple and painted her face a bit (purple of course her favorite color). Good Luck!
