Candy Vending Machine Costume
Candy Vending Machine!
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Nyomi, the 'Candy Vending Machine' costume creator:
I made my 10 year old son a candy machine! He wanted to be a claw machine, but we ended up with a vending machine! It cost around $10 to make. It was time consuming. I took a large box, cut the top flaps off, flipped it over, and cut a hole in the center. I then got a smaller box, and cut it's size out of the center of the bigger box. Next we painted it black. I then lined up various candy bars and glued them into the smaller box with a glue gun. I then cut a silver slinky and wrapped it partially around the bottom of the candy to look like it would be next to be pushed out. Next I used price tag stickers to mark the code for each snack. I finished up with adding the dollar bill insert, change retrieval, and snack retrieval made of scrap cardboard and tin foil!
