Day 5 of my 50 DIY Days: Last Minute Pregnancy Ice Cream Cone Costume
Guys. I’m pregnant. There is this massive belly in my way (I’m running into everything) and it’s only going to get bigger. What am I going to do for Halloween? I had so many ideas, but I think this one might be it. I’ve dressed up as an “ice cream cone that fell on the floor and is now upside down” as my 5-year-old daughter put it. It’s really the PERFECT last minute costume for a pregnant lady. It’s comfortable, inexpensive, and I’m craving ice cream like crazy. If you’re not pregnant you can still dress up as ice cream, check out Kelly’s Ice Cream Cone costume. You and your friends could all dress up as ice cream!
- colorful stretchy skirt that can fit over your belly (I found mine on Amazon)
- colorful crop top shirt (I found mine on clearance at H&M)
- 2 or 3 different colors of felt for the sprinkles
- heavy duty double sided tape
- hot glue
- heavy cardstock paper
- free printable Waffle Cone
- red shoes
- hair pins
Print out the free printable Waffle Cone onto the cardstock paper. Cut out the shape. Roll it into a cone shape and use the hot glue gun to glue it together.
Cut sprinkle shapes (small rectangles) out of the colorful felt.
Use the heavy duty double sided tape to attach the sprinkles all over your pregnant belly. If you’re not worried about the sprinkles being a permanent addition to the skirt, then you can use hot glue to attach the sprinkles.
When it’s time to wear your costume put on your skirt, shirt, and red shoes (the cherry). Grab your hair pins and hair clips and use them to attach the Waffle Cone hat to your head. You’re ready! This last minute costume is so easy and can easily be made the day of your Halloween party (as long as you have the materials).
