DIY baby carrot costume

It’s Day 2 of Design Dazzle’s Halloween Bash, and I’m sharing another super cute (and ridiculously easy) Halloween costume idea for Maxwell! He has quite the collection for Halloween 2014, ha! We’ve done a cheeseburger, game boy, koala bear, panda bear, and now an organic carrot! I’ve got lots DIY costume ideas too! I think he actually likes my dress up games and photo shoots! Here’s Maxwell in his carrot costume enjoying a carrot!

Homemade halloween costumes for babies: DIY carrot costume!Here’s what you need to make your very own carrot costume:

I have the Rit Dye in the picture because I attempted to dye the elastic green. It kind of worked, but since I tied the tuelle around the elastic you can’t see the band anyway. I’d skip that step if I were you!

I measured Maxwell’s head with the elastic and cut a piece where it would fit around his comfortably. Then, I hand stitched it together with a needle and thread. You can see my pathetic attempt at dying the elastic green in this picture…

I just cut 6 inch wide or so strips of tulle and tied them around the elastic band… easy freakin’ peasy, y’all! Then all I had to do was make the organic stickers! I used white mailing labels because I had those on hand and a quarter to to trace around and make a pretty circle…

Here’s a close up of his USDA Organic sticker and 100% natural!

I love that this costume does not mess up the onesie at all! Just take the 2 stickers off and voila, you’ve got your orange onesie back for everyday wearing! How stinkin’ cute is my giant organic carrot?! Homemade halloween costum

Halloween party ideas {Duck tape pumpkins}

No carve pumpkins are my favorite! (I used thumb tacks and Sharpies last year.) Not only is no carve easier, but the pumpkins last way longer! Or you can even use fake ones, which last forever. As for Halloween party ideas, these pumpkins could be used tons of ways: As outside or inside decor, centerpieces, or you could have a no carve pumpkin decorating contest and the let everyone make their own! It’s a BYOP kind of party, P= pumpkin! You could supply the decorating supplies and let everyone go to town!

No carve pumpkin ideas

And just for fun, can you guess which one of these pumpkins is real and which one is fake? (The orange one is real and the white one is fake!) And would you have guessed that the fun faces are made out of tape? Duck Tape to be exact! I’m just full of exciting surprises today! Oh and did I mention this project takes all of 10 minutes with your Cricut Explore machine?! I kind of love it.

What you need:

  • Duck Tape Sheets<– Get them on Amazon for $4.09 a sheet or use a 40% off coupon on one sheet at Hobby Lobby!
  • Cricut Explore machine
  • Any kind of pumpkin
  • Pumpkin face templates

As for pumpkin face templates, I just googled “free pumpkin face templates” and picked the 2 you see above! Then, I used this tutorial to upload the pumpkin face and skull images to my Cricut Explore. Once the image is uploaded, you can make it as big or small as you need to based on the size of your pumpkin. Also, not to waste your Duck Tape sheets, if you click the complete image, adn then hit the “contours” button in the layers screen. You can separate each of the pieces so that you can print them closer together! The purple shapes with the terquoise lines around it will be hidden, allowing you to freely move the one large eye around. Does that make sense?!

Cricut Explore Tip

Once your image(s) are all set, just press the green “C” and this pops up. Here’s what you need to do now:

1. Change the “Select a material” to Duck Tape in the pull down menu

2. Change the dial on your machine to “Custom”

3. Put your sheet of Duck Tape on the sticky Cricut mat.

And then your machine magically cutes perfect pumpkin faces! I kind of love it, y’all! And you seriously just use your fingers to stick the faces on your pumpkins. Easiest pumpkin face ever!

Look how fun these guys are on my front porch! And since it’s just tape, I think I’m going to make another set of faces for the back of the pumpkins that way  I have 4 pumpkin face options!

Are you planning on throwing a Halloween party this year? Any good tips? Did you guess the fake versus real pumpkin correctly? Are you a good pumpkin carver or would you rather do the no carve thing too? I’d love to hear…
