I am a fan of really original and fun Halloween costumes. This year I had a pretty strict budget and I really had to get the creative juices flowing. I came up with the homemade Mail Order Bride costume idea from a political cartoon I saw of a bride jumping out of a mailbox. I thought, huh, that would be a pretty funny Halloween costume!
So here it is… a mail order bride costume for under $20!
I made the skirt from sewing together Fed-Ex envelopes, bubble wrap and tulle.
I printed out labels on my computer that said “Fragile Do Not Drop” and glued them onto my corset.
I also made a purse by combining two Fed-Ex envelopes.
And what bride would feel complete without a bouquet? I simply wrapped the stems with bubble wrap in keeping with the theme.

How was the purse made so it didn’t fall apart and stuff stayed inside?
