Low Cost M&M Candy Child Costume

Updated on October 29, 2013

Types of M&M Candy Child Costumes

M&M's can be a fun and creative start to a child's low cost Halloween costume. While I favor the Blue M&M character, there are costumes for almost every style of M&M and every flavor of M&M there is. Your child can be a blue, red, green, yellow, orange, brown or even purple M&M. Or they can be a whole package of M&Ms: crispy, pretzel, plain or peanut. I have also seen some cute M&M blizzard costumes.

Get creative and put a costume on your M&M like the famous Halloween M&M commercials. To dress up the M&M costume you can add a few props to become a Witch or Warlock M&M. In the past I have seen A Yellow M&M dressed as a Clown, a Blue M&M dressed as a Punk Rocker and a package of Plain M&M dressed as a Cowboy. I have even seen a group of kids dress up as Zombie and Vampire M&M's .

How To Make A Super Simple, Easy Candy M&M Costume.

This Halloween M&M Costume Idea Can Be Made In A Matter Of Minutes

1. Buy felt material in the color of M&M you want to be. The typical M&M colors are blue, red, dark brown, dark or metallic green and bright orange.

2. For a child you will need about two yards of felt material, for an older child you may need up to three yards.

3. Use a piece of cardboard to cut out a pattern. Cut a large circle to the size you need your costume to be, keep in mind its better for the costume to be a little big then too small. (Cut pattern in an oval if you want to be a peanut M&M costume.)

4. Cut out two circles from the foam fabric using the card board pattern.

5.Put the pieces of material on top of each other with the fabric you want on the outside of the costume facing each other on the inside.

6.Sew or use sew glue to attach the two pieces together. Leave at least ten inches of the top for the head and the bottom for the leg opening.

If using sew glue, let glue set and dry before turning it inside out to make the seams go

7. Sew together the 2 circles, leaving about 10 to 12 inches near the top open for the head. The bottom edge should be left open for the legs. After sewing, turn inside out so that the seams are on the inside of the costume.

8. Have the costume wearer put the costume over them and mark where their shoulders hit to make arm holes.

9. Take the costume off to cut arm holes. The holes need to be large enough for the arms to go through.

10. Cut a large M out of white felt materiel, then glue it to the front of the costume with fabric glue.

11. Decide rather you want to put a face on the costume or just put the M&M logo on.

12. Put the logo in the center of the costume if not drawing a face on, or put it towards the bottom if face is going to be added.

13. To put a face on your M&M candy costume cut out round eyes from white felt and the mouth from black felt. Use semi circles of felt from the costume material to make eyelid's. (Use drawings of the color of M&M you chose to determine the facial feature you draw on your costume to make it more unique.)

14. With the costume wear pants and long sleeve shirt with white gloves.
