My 5-year-old is quite the free thinker and she insisted on a Homemade Rainbow Costume. Not being very crafty, I scoured the internet looking for ideas and couldn’t find much of anything. I was at a thrift store one day where I found a rainbow-striped sundress and that started the ideas rolling. After finding the sundress, I found the rainbow knee-high toe socks. Then I was talking with my sister and she had armbands she had sewn for a homemade Rainbow Brite costume.

I then ventured into the craft store where I got some silver and white sparkly tulle and made a tutu to be her cloud. She also wanted a pot of gold, so I got a yellow baseball cap and some black and gold foam. I cut a pot out of the black foam and stapled it to the cap. Then I cut out coins from the gold foam and glued them to the pot. I paired all these items with a bright orange long sleeved shirt and some purple leggings, and I had the happiest and most colorful rainbow in the neighborhood.

I really like Halloween. And when I found out that this past Halloween was going to double as my best friend's bachelorette party, I knew I had to up my game. She was going as a unicorn and I felt she needed an equally magical rainbow friend…

How'd I make this homemade rainbow Halloween costume idea? The front and back were a foam mattress pad, cut in half and sewed at the top and side seams. 7 cans of spray paint carefully blended make the rainbow. Polyfill (pillow stuffing) was the perfect material for fluffy clouds, but it wasn't all that willing to stay in place. I clumped polyfill into volleyball-sized poofs, sprayed with a light coating of spray adhesive and let dry. I attached the cloud puffs to the foam rainbow with a more liberal coat of spray adhesive. Leftover foam served as the base for cloud shoes that covered my sneakers with more polyfill on top.
