I wanted to be something different for Halloween so I thought why not a delicious treat that everyone enjoys. I decided on a Homemade Pop-Tart Costume. When I was younger my mom made me a basketball outfit with fabric, so I figured instead of making a circle shaped costume I would beg my mom to make me a square costume i.e. the basic shape of a Poptart.
Things You Need: You will need fabric/felt from the fabric store, pipe cleaners, a glue gun, and a sewing machine.
How-To-Do: First my mom and I purchased brown and white material from the craft store, Joann's. Then my mom made her own pattern of a square, and sewed a big brown square. She then cut out a white piece of felt to make the frosting, and sewed that onto the brown. Next, I used pipe cleaners (assorted colors) and cut them into small pieces. I then hot glued them onto the white, to make sprinkles.
Then my mom created another brown square for the back, and made two small straps to hold the pieces together, and enabled me to place it on my shoulders. Then we went online, found a logo for Poptart and pinned it on the front with a safety pin. (So people wouldn’t be confused).
Tips for costume: It really helps if you know how to sew.
My daughter really wanted to be her favorite breakfast food: a Kellogg's Pop Tart. This costume was surprisingly easy to make.
I started by purchasing two pieces of 1" green dense foam. I sewed the two pieces together with a needle and thread, leaving the bottom open so she could slip it on. Next, I cut out openings for her hands and head. Then I bought natural color felt and decorated the entire piece to resemble the crust. A hot-glue gun, which is the best option, adhered the felt to the foam and sides.
Next, I cut out a blue piece of felt to resemble the icing and glued it on top. Then I cut holes in the felt for her hands and head. We cut and glued colored straws for the sprinkles. The last pieces were a white material sash with Kellogg’s written on it, and a colored printout with the words “7 Vitamins & Minerals”; both were glued on.
It took about two hours to put everything together. Molly was pretty comfortable wearing it and had a wonderful Halloween!
