One more door to enter the “Countdown to Candy” giveaway.count-down-to-candy1 Have you gotten the Pottery Barn Kids Halloween mini catalog?  They have the most adorable costumes and treat bags.  I wanted to get started early on my kid’s Halloween costumes because October sneaks up on me every year.  I saw this and fell in love with the cuteness!  Since I would never spend $59 on a Halloween costume, Since this doesn’t come in Kayla’s size I decided I am going to have to figure out how to make it.pbcupcake I figured I would start off with the easiest part…the coordinating treat bag. cupcaketreatbag


I got an 8” brown felt basket from Total Class Creative.

I suppose you could make that too.  But for $5.99 it is worth it to purchase it.  Plus I heard through the grapevine that there will be a code for 25% off your purchase starting September 15th.  I will keep you posted.TCC290-300x3001. Grab some light pink, dark pink, red, and tan felt. Carefully unattach the handle.

2.  I used an embroidery hoop for a template and drew a circle and cut it out. But you can use whatever you have around the house to make a large circle. Then I traced a smaller circle (the top of a canister) to draw scallops on the circle.  IMG_0782IMG_07843. I drew a circle with 3” diameter and centered it in the middle of the scalloped circle and then cut it out.  Then I cut 1” slits all the way around the inner circle.

Put.dabs of hot glue down under the tan felt and pinch it together so that it forms puckered pleaty things.IMG_07928. Grab the hot pink felt and glue it in place underneath the lip of the basket gluing down the slits.  After that I ran it through my sewing machine to make sure it is all nice and sturdy for all that Halloween loot.IMG_0793IMG_0795 Hot glue the dots in place.IMG_0797 Reattach the handle with hot glue.IMG_0798IMG_0812

  1. Very cute. I love that costume. My daughter was a cupcake last year but we used the pattern on the Food Network site. Can't wait to see your costume.

  2. Great job! Can't wait to see what the costume looks like! I bought my daughters costume for this year at the end of the season last year. Though cheap ($5 for Snow White costume) it is definitely not up to trend for the year!

  3. You did such a great job! I love how you did the scallops! I am going to feature this tomorrow!

    I can't wait to see how you make the costume. My sister in law made their owl costume for my nephew last year. It was so cute! Can't wait to see the cupcake!

  4. I never would have thought of being a cupcake for Halloween, but I love it! And, I have no doubt that your Little Miss will rock the costume with her cuteness. Any ideas how to make my oldest a reptile? HAHA! Seriously… I have no idea how to get her turned into a lizard or frog or alligator – I'm veering away from snake though… hmmmm… gotta be one cool hat, but I am clueless…

  5. Oh my goodness Beckie! It is so sweet! A perfect bag for Kayla! I am consistently amazed by your talent 🙂

  6. Adorable!!!! I have seen all these cupcake costumes around and might just have to turn my 2year old daughter into 1 now 🙂
