Fun Foam Halloween Costumes

My local craft store had some rolls of Fun Foam on clearance. I snapped them up and wanted to see what costumes I could come up with for Halloween.  These costumes were VERY inexpensive and VERY easy to make :)

For M&M Mini, I just took the fun foam and cut it into circles.  Then I cut M's out with my Cricut and glued them on the fun foam.  I used a stapler and stapled the M&M's onto black sweats.  You could glue them on using fabric glue, but I decided this way they can be pulled off and the sweats can be reused.

To do the large M&M, I just cut two large circles out of the Fun foam and then made straps for the shoulders with the remaining fun foam.  I bought some red gloves and a knit hat.  I added an M (cut with my Cricut) onto the hat and the front of the M&M.

Sponge Bob took a little bit more time, but he is all cut out from Fun Foam pieces and glued onto a large yellow rectangular piece of fun foam.  I used a marker to make the three red dots on each of his cheeks.  The hat is made out of a piece of fun foam too.

What are you and your kids going to be for Halloween this year???

I've always preferred the creativity of homemade Halloween costumes and was kind of sad when my kids were old enough to beg me for whatever was popular at WalMart. :( Yours, though, are darling and so very clever.
Thank you for linking them to Motivated Monday at BeColorful

Heard a lot about Halloween events. Haven't seen and enjoyed any. Will ask my entire friend circle for their opinion about having one at event space Chicago near our place. Would be wonderful seeing all in different costumes. Excited to fix the party place and date soon.
