DIY & Crafts: Adorable and Affordable Gumball Machine Costume

Gumball Machine Halloween CostumeHalloween is here, which means I have got to start making my daughter’s costume! I wanted to make her something cute, easy, and affordable, which can sometimes be difficult, especially if it’s last minute. So, I decided to head to my local Dollar Tree to pickup a few $1 supplies. I ended up making her this adorable gumball machine costume for just a few dollars. It was so easy to make and is really fun to wear. I paired it with red leggings, but you could also wear with jeans or a black skirt. Don’t forget to make sure to buy enough pom-poms to fill the size shirt you have.

Please note: I made this costume to fit children, but it can be made for adults as well.


Gumball Machine Costume Supplies:

  • Pom-Poms
  • Construction Paper (Will be use for the 25 cents sign)
  • Optional: Numbered and Lettered Stickers (I used yellow)
  • Tacky Glue®
  • Red T-Shirt (Not Sold at Dollar Tree)

Follow Along Step-by-Step:

  1. I laid out my red t-shirt and I used Tacky Glue® to glue the assorted colored pom-poms to the shirt and glued them in a random pattern.
  2. Let the glue dry completely.
  3. Next, I placed yellow stickers to spell out “25 CENTS” onto black construction paper.
  4. Then, I cut around the letters to make a rectangular shape and used Tacky Glue® to glue the label to the bottom of the shirt.
  5. I paired the finished gumball shirt with red leggings for the sweetest little costume!
