Easy Baker + Cupcake Store Bought Halloween Costumes

This year I finally wised up for Halloween!  I’ve been making my kiddos coordinating homemade Halloween costumes since they started dressing up (owls, Scuba Divers and Planets).  It’s been fun and something I really enjoy doing, but we have a lot of crazy going on in our lives this year so I wanted to go the LOW STRESS Halloween Costume route.  Today I am sharing  how to customize Easy Store Bought Baker and Cupcake Halloween Costumes for children!

We do a lot of dress-up at our house, so I wanted my kids to be something fun that they can enjoy throughout the year and easy!  I still had some creative fun but went 90% store bought and 10% homemade.  And you WON’T believe how inexpensive these costumes were, read to the very bottom to see!!

For my son’s baker costume, I went with minimal effort.  We already had a big wooden spoon so I painted the top portion of it with pink acrylic paint to match the frosting of my daughter’s cupcake costume.  I added a few brightly colored sprinkles as well, because yummy sprinkles!

No adorable Cupcake little girl’s costume would be complete without a wand, so I made her a cupcake sprinkle wand!  I found a clear plastic cup with straw at Target on sale.  The straw had a small lip at the end and I used that to my advantage.  I pulled the straw out as far as the lip would allow and then used hot glue to secure it would stay.  I ended up adding a lot of glue to make it nice and secure.

For the sprinkles, I was so happy to find a good use for my Martha Stewart fringe scissors!   These scissors honestly cut my time in third.  After most of the cup was full of brightly colored sprinkle paper, I added some ribbon embellishments to the outside of the wand for extra sprinkle power.
