My daughter told me last Spring that when Halloween comes around, she wants to be a crayon. A crayon? Yes a Crayola crayon. With some thought, a plan, and lots of school glue, her Homemade Crayola Crayon Costume is a reality.

About 8 sheets of lime green bristol board from the dollar store, a bottle of glue, some cardboard lying around the house and a permanent black marker and of course a little patience. It really stands out and the best thing about it is because it’s bright green, you can’t miss it in the dark. The entire costume cost me about 6 dollars to complete whatever height you want. With the costume on, my daughter is about 7 feet tall
