Quick and Easy Halloween Costume!

It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me or reads this little space that I have a BIG love affair with Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes.. like it’s one of my favorite days of the year when they bring them back out! I was hoping for an easy costume and saw a few on Pinterest that I liked but ultimately decided to do my own PSL costume!

Materials needed:

Slip or dress – I ordered mine from Amazon but they have some at Target as well!

White or ivory/cream felt  – 23 cents at Walmart!

Orange felt – seriously 23 cents from Walmart!

Hot glue gun (and sticks)

Printed Starbucks Logo- just google image search will do!

Once you have all your materials, start with cutting out the Starbucks logo.  Once that’s been cut, I put the logo on a piece of felt and cut around it so it would have a little more substance before attaching it to the slip. You can skip this though and simply glue just the paper logo!

Next, cut 8-10 round felt circles – You can use the logo for these too so they’re all uniform and the same size (that’s what I did!) or just free hand it if you want different sizes.  Once they are cut, fold them in half to make the “foam”.  I doubled mine up on a few pieces and other pieces I left single.

I put mine on a chair with a pillow.. It made the slip a little looser and also was easier to glue the felt!

I glued the fabric together (on the double pieces) and then attached them to the slip.  I attached them to the whole top part and a small part of the straps to hold it up more!

Then glue the logo onto the center of the dress. I put a piece of cardboard in between the slip so the hot glue didn’t seep through to the backside!

Was looking at where I wanted to glue this! Decided to do the logo first πŸ™‚

Optional: cut out a rectangle on the orange felt and attach it to the bottom of the “cup” so  you can write in “what was ordered” – PSL with black marker.  I also wrote my “name” on top of that and since Starbucks usually spells everyone’s name wrong (am I right?!) I made sure to make mine wrong to!

Writing on this fabric was a lot harder than I thought! So much for cute writing!

Just a little silliness πŸ™‚ excuse how sheer the slip is!

And that’s it!  I did notice a lot of people put straws on their costumes but let’s be real.. a PSL doesn’t have a straw unless you get the cold press (if there is one?!) and I’m not all about that so I skipped the straw!  Pretty simple and cute for a fun night out or even for a Halloween party at work or trick-or-treating with kids!

Final product! I added OTK boots but you could do leggings or tights and booties πŸ™‚

Hard to see but I added a little cinnamon to the foam as well since that’s usually topped on the whipped cream!

And of course.. you need a PSL with you πŸ™‚ You could even use a Starbucks bag for a purse if you felt really inspired!

The hubs and I decided on doing a couple’s costume – otherwise I’d be wearing this out tonight! πŸ™‚

Have a safe weekend!
