Simply Crafty: DIY Crayon Costume

Happy Monday everyone!

How was your weekend?!? So I missed the memo (or clearly ignored all signs) that Halloween weekend was THIS past weekend. I don't even have mine and Rob's costume done yet! Oh well, Halloween night it is. But I did make these super simple crayon costumes for a work party a week ago. When I saw these costumes on amazon (discovered by my coworker Ashlee), I used that as inspiration and came up with this!

Here's a picture of some of my WONDERFUL co-workers wearing them!

Clearly this half of our team won the relay race award! πŸ™‚

Crafty tip: For the ladies, the shirt will obviously warp over your chest so I found that having my sister wear the shirt (with a tank top underneath) and hot gluing the felt to the seams of her shirt with the shirt on and cutting off the excess felt at the end, worked best.

Yesterday, I got my first reflexology deep tissue massage and my body was not happy with it. I ended up feeling really nauseous and then my hands "fell asleep" for nearly 4 hours. It was a really bizarre feeling. I will have to tell them to go A LOT easier next time.

Did you celebrate Halloween this weekend or are you waiting for Halloween night? What is/was your costume? πŸ™‚

  1. I love a good crayon costume! I am not dressing up for halloween this year... mostly because we don't really love dressing up and because well, there's a hurricane here right now, haha. You'll find me hiding on my couch eating all the halloween candy!

  2. Hah! Loving this! I actually really dislike Halloween, but at school on Wednesday we will have "Storybook Character Day," so the kids have to dress up like a character and we will parade around the school. I have to take part in this although I'd rather not, but...other than that, not dressing up for Halloween and didn't this past weekend! It's fun to see others dressed up though.

    My favorite part is the little hat!

    We celebrated Halloween last weekend with a BIG much fun!


  5. Were you in charge of the costumes this year? Wish that was the case last year..... I would have gladly sported crayola crayons then the itchy feathered mask last year.

  6. What an awesome DIY post! And no sewing means it's doable for me πŸ™‚ Very creative - and thanks for the big boob disclosure, I needed that! πŸ˜‰

  7. This is so cute, and great for those of us who can't sew! So sorry to hear about your massage experience. I actually had a similar experience, minus the numb hands, and have never had one since. πŸ˜›
