Sugary Sweet Candy Corn Costume
Need some quick, easy Halloween costumes for your little ones? This Sugary Sweet Candy Corn Costume from Heather Mann is perfect! It's just scary how easy this costume is to make...and with the total cost somewhere around $5.00, it's a no-brainer!
- 1/4 yard each of white, orange, and yellow felt
- Sewing machine & thread
Hot glue gun & glue (for no-sew option)
Sew 1/4 yard strips of felt together, making sure seams are on the same side. Sew white to orange, and orange to yellow. Alternately, hot glue the felt strips together.
Cut two pieces of the striped fabric, about 24" wide. Fold in half, and cut a diagonal. The bottom should be the full width, and the top should be about 8" wide when folded in half (16" wide total). Use a tape measure to keep your line straight, or eyeball it. Repeat for 2nd piece of striped fabric. You will probably have some striped fabric leftover, too.
When you unfold the fabric, it will be a trapezoid that looks like this. Adjust the length as desired.
Put the trapezoids right sides together. Sew shoulder seams as shown here, leaving 6" unsewn in the middle. This will be the neck. Alternately, hot glue together.
Sew up the sides, leaving about 6-8" at the top unsewn. This will be the sleeve. Alternately, hot glue sides together and remember to leave sleeve holes.
Fold over bottom, and sew a hem. You can skip this part, but I like it because of the stiffness it gives the hem, so the corn is nice and round. Alternately, hot glue the hem.
If you want, you can fold the sleeves over and hem them too, but you don't have to. Alternately, hot glue the hem.
Cut a scoop in the front for the neck. Cut a straight line down the back about 6" to make the hole big enough for little noggins to get through.
Cut two pieces of ribbon, about 12" long. Singe the ends with a flame to keep them from unraveling. Fold over top hem of back of costume. Sandwich ribbons in the end and sew or hot glue to secure.
