You guys, I had so much fun making this adorable candy corn costume and candy corn hair clip! Gone are the days when I could spend an entire Saturday making a Thomas the train costume from a cardboard box, so this year we went with simplicity. Baby V is starting to have a lot of opinions and it also always on. the. move. So I wanted a costume she could play and have fun in and not worry about need to be adjusted or breaking. DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

Now, obviously there are a lot of candy corn costumes out there. But most of them involve sewing. Not my candy corn outfit! I went with tie dye so it was super duper easy and FAST!DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

But I think my favorite part is the candy corn hair clip. Honestly, that took me less than 5 minutes to make. I cranked it out while I was waiting for someone to show up for a meeting (they were late). It would have taken 3 minutes but I had to stop and take pictures for you. Seriously, a fast and cute hair clip! Here’s how I did it…

DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn Hair Clip

White cotton dress or tshirt

Yellow and orange tie dye

Blank metal hair clips

Orange, yellow and white felt

Craft glue

1 . It’s probably a good idea to wash and dry your dress or shirt before you start. Then make the bottom half damp and lay it out on top of spread out garbage bag or sheet of plastic.DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

2. I used this one step dye where it comes in the bottles already and you just add water. Super easy, but there’s not really any way to save the extra dye when you’re finished so just be aware…DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

3. I started with yellow dye along the bottom of the dress, making sure it went all the way through to the back as well. DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

4. Then I added orange above. You can see, from this photo versus the finished product, the orange bled quite far up the dress so next time I would make a narrower stripe of orange. Luckily real candy corn has more orange than yellow so it’s realistic!DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

5. Let that sit or dry according to the instructions on the dye and then rinse until the water runs clear. MAKE SURE to rinse from the white top part down so the white part stays white!

6. While your dress/shirt is drying, grab your felt and cut three triangular candy corn shapes. Mine are about 2 inches long. DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

7. Then stack the orange and yellow triangles and cut them in thirds at the same time like this. DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

8. Finally, take the bottom third from the yellow triangle and the middle third from the orange and glue them on top of the white triangle like this.DIY Candy Corn Costume and Candy Corn hair clip, perfect easy costume for Halloween! | littleredwindow.com

9. Finally glue the felt candy corn to the hair clip with a thick dollop of glue and let it dry.

Your adorable candy corn halloween costume is finished! Trick or Treat!
