DIY :: Cute as a Candy Button

I am a child of the nineties.  If any of you remember the popular candies of that decade, you will remember Nerds, Pop Rocks and the iconic Sugar Buttons.  The candy sugar buttons are so eye catching because of their neon colors and simply flavor.  Tear off a candy button and also get a taste of the backing paper as well.  The bright and fun colors of this iconic candy inspired me to make a costume for Halloween!  So to get started…..


 

Pin this!

1-1

You are going to need the following:

9 Foam Balls

Acrylic Paint(Pink, Blue and Yellow)

Glue Gun

Oversized T-Shirt

1-2

 

Start by cutting your balls in half with a craft knife or hacksaw(sounds painful) and then paint them yellow, pink and blue.  You will need a few coats of paint to get a true and vibrant color. 1-3 After the paint is dry, lay them out on the t-shirt and then hot glue them on!

Wear other bright 90’s era clothing with the shirt and you will be ready for the trick or treaters!
