DIY Cute and Easy Cupcake Costume for Halloween and Fancy Dress

This cute DIY cupcake / muffin costume is very easy to make and requires easily available items from around your house or the local store. It is super low budget and it involves very little time to make this Fancy Dress / Halloween costume. Perfect for toddlers and grown ups for fancy dress competitions, theme parties and of course, Halloween!

Mishika dressed up as a Cute Cupcake

So, I made this cupcake costume for Mishika for a Fancy Dress event for kids in our housing complex. She is almost 4 years old and this was her first every costume wearing event. I wanted her to enjoy participating instead of focussing on winning. So I didn’t tell her that there will be prizes involved and all. Getting kids involved in creating something that they will wear, eat or use is always a good idea. She wore the cupcake costume without any hesitation and didn’t ask us to remove it until the fancy dress competition was over and prizes were distributed!

Creating this cute Muffin required very basic items: Cardboard, Wrapping Paper, Glue, Scissors, an old Tutu / Dress with Frills that the kid has outgrown, Lanyard/String/Ribbon to hang the cupcake base bit.

I have uploaded a DIY video on YouTube on how to make this comfortable cupcake costume for Fancy Dress, Halloween, etc. Do check it out! Feel free to share with friends who might find this useful 😊 Save it for future reference as well. It is so super easy to make!

How to make a Bumblebee using Toilet Roll: DIY Craft Activity for Kids / Preschool

We made a bumblebee using toilet paper roll and tried an innovation for wings that really worked with the wings making a flapping sound under the fan.

How to make a Bumblebee using Toilet Roll

We used a sticker plastic sheet that I had saved earlier after all the stickers in the sheet were used up! Yay! It came in so handy! Super recycling – after Mishika is done playing with the bee, it will become a pen stand.

1. Cover a toilet paper roll cardboard with yellow paper.
2. Make eyes and draw a smile.
3. Paste foam glitter paper / black paper strips or just draw black strips.
4. Draw wings using a permanent marker on a transparent thick sheet. You can also use plain white or yellow paper. Paste it on the back of the bumblebee.
5. To use it as a pen stand, simply make a base with some circular cardboard piece!
