This year was the first year that I have ever worn a costume to work. I found something on pinterest about being an ice cream cone and thought… I am going to be a cupcake.
All I needed was a plastic clear christmas ornament, headband, red paint, hot glue gun, red ribbon, plain white shirt, skater skirt (or skirt of your choice), felt in a few colors, and scissors.
A few days before you are going to wear the costume, coat the inside of the ornament with red paint. Just squeeze some in there, swirl around, and then leave upside down to drain out. Repeat until fully coated and dry. If you do this the night before… paint will pour through any holes on the ornament base onto your hair… i speak from experience. Then you get to stick your head under the work sink and have a co-worker wash your hair :)
Then start by cutting your felt into small ovals for the sprinkles.
Hot Glue the sprinkles all over the top portion of your shirt.
Hot glue the ornament onto the headband and attach ribbon for cherry stem.
Once everything has dried, wear the costume!
It was a fun, easy, and appropriate costume for work. (Not Shown: I wore leggings because it was cold, in the first picture)
Then for the weekend, I made a couples outfit. I love making Bobby match me. I find it cute and hilarious that he hates it so much, yet still wears whatever I ask him to each year.
We met a group of friends at Top Golf, and just hung out and had a few drinks there. I am no golfer, but it is a fun place with good food!
We went as “Netflix and Chill.”
For his costume, we painted Netflix on a red shirt and then he wore red accents.
I used blue and white for the “Chill” colors and just wrote chill on my shirt.
I loved how they turned out. So easy, and I thought it was funny, even if no one else did haha
It was a great Halloween weekend :)
