My Halloween Costume!


This Halloween I was able to make a costume under $4.00. YAYY!!!
I decided to go as the Bag of Jelly Beans 😉 I was able to make this costume within 15-20mins. Yesterday when I wear my costume I was surprised that I got a lot of compliments. 🙂 and the kids love it.


Items Needed:

  • Large trash bag (clear) –
  • leggings or tights
  • Long Sleeve shirt
  • Ribbon
  • “Jelly Beans Logo- Front Placement & “Jelly Bean nutritional info” Back Placement
  • Balloons- Range from 50-70 Depends on the size.

  1. Begin by blowing the balloon- Make sure that the balloons are small and not full sized.
  2. Get a clear trash bag, cut holes for your arms and legs to fit through. ( I just cut the bottom corners for my legs
  3. Once you print the Jellybean logo and Nutritional fact. Use clear tape to put the Logo in front and the nutritional fact on the other side.
  4.  Put on your long sleeve shirt and or legging/tights
  5. Climb into the trash bag
  6. Fill up the bag with colored balloons.  Warning– If you put to many balloons you will have a hard time sitting down, driving, bending and kneeing.  🙂
  7. Ribbon- Two choices-
    1. Use a long piece of ribbon to tie the bag  around your neck
    2. Or what I did-  Using the ribbon I created one bow on each shoulder- Grabbing the excess plastic.

Hope you enjoy 🙂 & Have a Happy Halloween  -XoXo Cecilia
