This Popcorn Homemade Halloween Costume idea was real simple. My son Jordan came up to me and said "Mommy I want to be a box of pop corn." It just came out of left field, he's only 6yrs old. So I got a box, tissue paper, a glue gun, and some spray paint. Wala... pop corn with butter, great for a movie night.
Supplies: Glue gun Spray paint (red,white) Painter's tape Dark yellow acrylic paint tissue paper Computer & printer Box cutter
How to make: 1. Spray paint a box white. 2. Tape off stripes and spray paint red. 3. Go on your computer and add a circle shape with outline.Fill the circle with white, and the outline fill it in red. Add text "Pop Corn" to the right size. Print out 2 copies and cut out graphic. 4. Remove the tape to expose the strips. 5. Glue cut graphic to box on both sides. 6. Cut out a head hole in top of the box and arm holes in the sides of box with a box cutter (be careful). 7. Wad tissue paper into balls and attach to top of the box with glue gun. Fill in holes as needed. 8. Add some dark yellow to the tops of wadded tissue paper for butter effect.

Popcorn! Get your popcorn here! I love food costumes and this was one of my favorites.
The basic idea behind this costume included LOTS and LOTS of glue gun sticks and LOTS and LOTS of popcorn, but making the actual costume was pretty simple.
The costume is fundamentally made with two loops of wire connected at the corners by another piece of wire, a basic wire frame.
I then covered this with plain white paper, the kind that comes on the rolls and bought the same kind of red paper. I cut strips of the red paper and glued them on with glue stick.
I took an undershirt and glued on a thick coat of popcorn with hot glue. I also made a popcorn hat. Then, I covered the top of the costume with white paper so that I could glue more popcorn on the top.
My school has a “most spirited award” and with this costume I won!
I decided I wanted to go as an original Homemade Popcorn Halloween Costume made of a red striped bag of popcorn.
I made the front and back pieces out of foam board and them wrapped them with fabric. I attached the sides with more of the original fabric and made the stripes with satin red ribbon. I wrote the "popcorn" out with fabric paint in an old style font. I made suspenders out of that same red ribbon and decorated them with bows.
To top it off I put popcorn on a string similar to Xmas decorations and bobby pinned it in my hair. I handed out popcorn all night.

This costume was brought about by Tyler(popcorn). He loves the movies and wanted to be the "favorite" snack at the movies for Halloween. But popcorn could be salty, so you would need a drink, how about a coke?
So the idea of Homemade Popcorn and Coke Costumes was done, now they just needed to be made. After long hours of discussions and decision- making, here is what they finally came up with (with some parental help, of course!).
