This last one is an extra large receiving blanket perfect for
My boys still use their blankets from when they were babies when they are watching movies etc.
If they had had these ones they would be stylin' now :)
Cut felt into rectangular strips that resemble sprinkles.
Safety pin them to a pink shirt.
(I tried not to put too many on the "chestal" region but that wouldn't matter for a kid).
Cut the bottom out of the laundry basket. If you are fortunate enough to be skinny enough to fit into that round opening, rejoice and move on to covering the basket with aluminum foil. If your hips are more than enough for that opening, cut the basket in half and gorilla tape the cardboard in to widen the basket. It will make the cupcake base oval instead of round. I suppose I could have used an oval laundry basket, but our dollar stores didn't have any of those and I didn't want to cut up the laundry baskets that I actually use for laundry.
Cover the shape with aluminum foil.
Cut two lengths of twine and attach to top of basket to make straps that will go over your shoulders.
Paint the pumpkin red.
Pull out the tiny stem and replace with part of a headband in order to make a cherry like stem.
Attach to another headband with hot glue.
Put on your sprinkle shirt, step into cupcake laundry basket base and slip twine straps over your shoulders. Slip on the pink wig and pop on your "cherry on top" headband.
Out of pocket cost: $10
OK, I did feel kinda silly wearing it,
but it was a kids party.
The little ones thought I was looking pretty "sweet".
