I went to a thrift shop and found cotton batting for pennies. I filled a spray bottle with washable paint and water and sprayed the batting to look like cotton candy. The batting had to dry for a day before I could put the Cotton Candy Homemade Halloween Costume together.
I used packing tape rolled into pieces with the sticky side out to tape it onto a clear plastic garbage bag. I cut holes out for arms and legs and then I put another clear bag over it with matching holes for the arms and legs. I carefully taped the leg and arm holes together with the packing tape so both bags stayed together. I then folded the top of the bags down and cut small slits at 2″ intervals.
Then I wove colored ribbon in and out of the slits so I could close the costume by tying a bow at the neck. I found scrap book embellishments at a craft store that said “sweet” to apply to the front of the costume as well as velum star stickers to make it look like a cotton candy bag.
To top off the cotton candy costume I sprayed a cotton candy scented body spray on the bag for an extra special effect!

Never thought of cotton candy in a bag, but they are sold in bags too! Looks great!
Nice job, I love the colors, this doesn’t look too difficult to make
Thanks for the idea…My daughter just told me yesterday this is what she wanted to be for Halloween.
Thank you for the great idea and directions. We just made one for Halloween and it came out great! Couldn’t find inexpensive batting so we used one very large bag of the blanket of snow cotton and it worked just fine.
