This homemade costume for kids entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Kim, the 'PB&J' costume creator:

Its fun to come up with different ideas for twin costumes to shake things up a bit, and my girls love peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, so, why not let them be PB&J for halloween? Gabrielle is the Jiff and Grace is the Smuckers. So much fun trying to figure how i was going to make these and keep the shape of a jar, but with a wire wreath circular frame and a few yards of felt, anything is possible! For the actual trick or treating, I joined in the fun with a little Fluff of my own :)

SO cute, Kim! Ingenious actually....LOVE seeing 'different' costumes (AND home-made ones) come to my door on Halloween (they always get 2 pieces of candy over store bought!). PJ&J fan!

Sheer Genius!! This is what Halloween is all about. The girls will look back on this when they are older and give their Mom a big 'ol hug for being so creative and getting into the spirit!

Thanks for helping me get to looking as awesome as you and your adorbs kids!

Hi

Is the Marshmallow Fluff shirt made from felt too? Last year my girls were Ketchup and Mustard...totally doing this for them this year :)

Hi everyone! Thank you for the lovely compliments!

Everything I made was using felt - I usually trace out the design on paper first, then I hold the paper up to a window and trace the reverse pattern. Then, I trace it thru the paper (using a pen, pressing hard) onto the felt. This way, when I cut it out, any extra markings are on the backside - hopefully that made sense. The biggest thing was just getting the logo from my old pal, google, and finding matching felt colors :)

How did you do logos snd lettering?

#16 comment by Kim G October 19, 2014

I bought the felt letters and I drew the logos from a picture I found online of the jars :)

Is there instructions on how to make this? This is the best one I've seen!
