CWTS Sweet Treat Costumes - Kristen Duke Photography


So this was my favorite project from Crafting with the Stars and yes I am being competely biased!  My partner Kristen of Kristen Duke Photography made these fun costumes for the competition.  I have seriously never met anyone like Kristen.  She was on fire!  I think it took her like 5 minutes to make all of these costumes.  We brainstormed ideas and then an hour later she was sending me the images that she had already edited!

I can't wait to work with her again this week! 






Here is a little tutorial on how to make the sweet treats for the family (in case you need costumes this weekend): I must first say that my awesome neighbors were my models (plus my daughter as choco chip girl). I basically free hand drew the shape for each costume, so not sure I can explain how to do that except I did draw the elephant on paper first, then traced it on the felt.





For the chocolate chip cookie I used hot glue and saftety pins to hold the two pieces of felt together, then flipped it inside out and stuffed with grocery bags:



I had a brown headband (with a big leather flower on it) that I wanted to use again, so I just covered it up so that I could easily take it off when I was done with the cookie costume...my daughter wore this to school the next day with just a normal outfit.


Inside the donut is an orange inflatable tube leftover from our summer pool excursions. I did sew this part.



And then the cupcake:


The bottom of my cupcake, the skirt, I folded like an accordian or fan, then put it under something heavy, and starched it. Turned out nice and bendy:)

I was so jealous to hear you actually got to work together, in person! That would make things so much easier. Way to go!
