2 Scoops Please! // Ice Cream Halloween Costume

I can’t believe Halloween has come and gone already! Wasn’t it just the end of September like, yesterday?!?!

Halloween was such a busy day for us, though also, so good! We stayed close to our neighborhood with family and delighted in Abby really getting the whole, “trick-or-treat” thing this year. 

And all of us were dying of cuteness the whole night because the cherry on top would slightly wobble when Abby walked. 

So. Dan. Fun.

This year’s family Halloween costume was super easy to make because I gun glued the sprinkles during nap time, and Steve's spoon took me all of 10 minutes to make from start to finish! Completely do-able! And last minute! : )

If you’d like to see how I made her two scoops of costumes (along with a handful of fun photos) I'm happy to help with that, as all of you know, I live for this kind of stuff.

DIY Two Scoops Of Ice Cream // Halloween Costume

Step-by-step Directions
Step 1 

Cut out a rectangle shaped piece of felt 1 inch by 2 inches. Then glue gun the middle section of the rectangle.

Step 2

Roll the bottom to the top and add a bit of glue to secure your roll/sprinkle.

Step 3

Place your sprinkles on top of your child's tutu skirt and arrange as preferred. 

Step 4

Next, glue gun all your felt sprinkle pieces to the tutu skirt. Front and back.
Step 5

For the cherry, I borrowed this idea from one of my favorite websites  Studio DIY,  although I made my own twist to the cherry on top. First, I blew up a red balloon to my desired shaped, then glue gunned a hair clip to the bottom of the balloons knot (I promise you it won't pop!).
Step 6

Next, I cut out a stem shaped from red card stock paper (we want it to stand up nice and firm!)

Step 7

Then I taped the stem to the balloon by flipping a small portion of the bottom slightly back with scotch tape.

Step 8

Add gold tights and shoes to represent the ice cream cone, a pink tutu for the second scoop of ice cream and viola! 

Step 9
Lastly, don't forget to add the cherry on top for that final touch. : )
