Do It Yourself Lifesaver Candy Costume
Halloween is just around the corner and it’s time to gear up with a unique costume. If you’re looking for a funny, pun-based costume that’ll be easy to make on your own, we have the perfect idea: the Lifesaver candy costume! Not only is it a fun play on words, but it’s also a fun and easy costume to put together.
What You’ll Need
- A red t-shirt or dress
- A white circle cut out of felt or fabric
- A black marker pen
- A white headband
- Red, blue, green, yellow and orange balloons
- String or ribbon
- A hot glue gun
Step 1: Create the Lifesaver Logo
Take the white circle and use the black marker pen to draw “Lifesaver” around the edge. This will be the logo for your candy costume.
Step 2: Create the Candy Wrapper
Wear the red t-shirt or dress as the base for the costume. Then, take the white felt circle and glue it to the center of the front of the shirt or dress.
Step 3: Create the Candy Discs
Blow up the balloons to a size that matches the size of the white circle. Tie the balloons with string or ribbon and glue them to the top of the white disc in the same pattern as a Lifesaver candy: red, blue, green, yellow and orange.
Step 4: Create the Headband
Cut a length of ribbon or string and glue the candy discs onto it in the same pattern as the ones on the shirt or dress. Then, attach the ribbon to the headband so that the discs sit on top of your head.
Step 5: Final Touches
Using the black marker, add some detail to the balloons to make them look more like candy. You can add lines, dots, or any other design that your creative mind can come up with. Also, you can add some candy artwork to the back of the t-shirt if you wish.
And voila, your homemade Lifesaver candy costume is ready to wear! It’s easy to make, fun and unique. Plus, everyone will appreciate your creativity and sense of humor. So go ahead and make your own candy costume and have a scary great Halloween!
Whether you’re attending Halloween festivities or a themed party, it’s always fun to dress up in a clever costume. If you’re looking for a unique and fun Halloween costume that can also be whipped together in a matter of minutes, then a do it yourself (DIY) lifesaver candy costume is just the outfit for you. Such a costume can easily be put together with just a few easily-accessible items.
To assemble this costume, start with a base white outfit. The base outfit can be a t-shirt, tank top or even a long-sleeved shirt, depending on personal taste. Bothe the t-shirt and the long-sleeved shirt should be made of a lightweight fabric that won’t be too hot for long hours of wearing it. If you don’t have a white item of clothing handy, a store-bought white shirt or tank top is your best bet. You can also add a pair of matching white pants and a white hat to complete the look.
The next step of this DIY lifesaver candy costume is adorning the white outfit with small round lifesaver candy decals. You can make the decals at home with felt, or you can purchase them already made in various colors of felt. To save time, pre-made decals can easily be attached to the shirt, pants and hat with a hot glue gun or a fabric glue.
Finally, finish off the costume with further embellishments. Add glitter to the edge of the felt decals and to the hat, as well as some red and white ribbon, for the added detail of a true lifesaver candy.
The entire DIY lifesaver candy costume can be whipped up in no time and is ready for your next Halloween shindig. With minimal effort and just a few readily available items, this costume will have you looking sweet and heroic wherever you go!
