If I were to do this costume again I would have put armholes. She thought it would be easier to carry. I carried her candy bag.

For the Coke Costume you'll need:
Round Cardboard Tube (Purchased at Home Depot) White Felt Letters 3 Yards Red Felt (Large Pieces) 1 Sheet of Flimsy Foam found in Craft sections White Hat (Very basic painters type hat) Straps (we used a Silver Duct tape and wrapped it within the holes of the tube; for additional support)
Cut armholes into circular tube.
Wrap tape firmly throughout armholes; we crisscrossed and squeezed the tape in our hand (to look like a rope).
Glue the Red Felt over the entire tube Apply the word "Coke" and I made a swoosh looking symbol from scrap felt.
I took the flimsy foam and rolled it up, glued red felt on it to look like a stripe, & glued it to hat
This wasn't the easiest costume I have made by far but the compliments made it worthwhile.

I wasn't sure what my oldest son was going to be so I decided to make my own costume. All I needed was a box , white paint , red construction paper and a lot of those Styrofoam peanuts you use to mail out breakables for this popcorn costume.
Painted the box white , made 3 holes one for the head and two for the arms. I cut the red construction paper and I glued them on. I have the letter stencils so I put his name on it to make it more personal.
It was pretty easy. I did it the day before Halloween and everyone got a kick out of it.
