DIY Gumball Machine Costume

This year for Halloween, my oldest daughter will be going as a Gumball Machine.

She is getting a bit old for trick or treating, but she does have two younger siblings to take around with her so I'm sure she'll be able to score lots of candy as well.  Plus our church does a Trunk or Treat and it's not limited to just the little kids.  You can check out my previous post HERE to see how we decorated our trunk.   

In deciding what to be, my daughter and I looked on Pinterest for "Easy DIY teenage girl Halloween costumes" and decided on THIS one.  
I think we came pretty close to the inspiration and so I'll call this a Pinterest Success!

OK, now onto how we made this costume.  Luckily we had most of the supplies and just had to buy the pom poms and red pants.  I bought the red pants at a thrift store for $3.  They are Michale Kors brand.  Yeah, I'm sometimes amazed at the name brands we have at our local thrift store. 

Using a hot glue gun, I just glued the poms poms right to the white shirt. 

For the sign we just covered some paper with Duct tape and wrote on it with a black Sharpie.  We made some belt loops out of Duct tape on the back so she could wear it on her belt.

Classic red Chucks add a little more cool to this costume.  
Aww, isn't she so cute.

Happy Halloween!
