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 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!

Those costumes are so awesome!!! This has definitely given me some ideas as I don't have a costume decided on yet! That's me...queen of procrastination!

Thanks for the ideas! :)
