Making an M&M Costume

October 4, 2005

Cartoon M&MsBuy material big enough to make a big circle, front and back, with solid color material. Allowing neck hole, arm holes & a way of putting it on. Sew or mark a big "M" on the front. Stuff the costume so it would fill out or balloon out. Could wear black or white tights. Go as M&Ms candies! This would be cute as a bunch, all different colors.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for an M&M purse. My daughter is going to be a Green M&M for Halloween. Thank you.

I'd try a little round (perhaps green?!) purse and glue M&M's to it. You can create patterns or go in circles. If you are really handy, you could sow some white arms on the round purse (like the little guys on TV!)


Otherwise, take a little make-up bag (we all have them lying around!) and just glue M&M's to it. And add a sling.

Do you sew? I found directions online to make a pencil bag and used those along with a Halloween themed large m&m bag, plus you get to eat the m&m's! All you need is a zipper, vinyl (I used a clear shower curtain), a large bag of m&m's, and a sewing machine.

I'm trying to make M&M character costumes for adults. I have to make 20 for my group. Where can I find that foamy material?

I would use felt. If you need it stiffer, use an iron -on interfacing.

sew two circles together with batting in between, one for front and one for back. cut M out of white felt and glue on each one, make straps with green ribbon and ties on the sides.
