Last Minute Halloween Costume

Need a last minute costume idea? How about a TOOTSIE ROLL! This is quick and easy costume that is great for all ages.
You can find every thing you need at your local craft store. You’ll need one large brown t-shirt , one large orange shirt, large brown foam sheet, large white foam sheet, glue gun, and a pen.
Cut off the sleeves on the brown t-shirt. Then in the middle of the orange t-shirt measure about a 4 inch wide area. Cut this area straight across the shirt so that your cutting both the back and the front at the same time. That way the side seams are still in tack. That will be your top orange stripe for the brown shirt.

Slide the orange ring up to the top of the brown shirt . Tuck the ruff edge under and secure with a glue gun. Since your stripe will be at the sleeve line you’ll need to cut the orange ring at the sleeve line & tuck seam under and glue it as well.

Measure and cut another 4 inch wide ring on the orange shirt. Repeat steps above, but you will not need to cut the ring. Just glue the ruff edge under all the way around the bottom of the brown shirt.

Cut the brown foam sheet into a large rectangle that will fit the middle of the brown shirt. Now draw your block letters “TOOTSIE ROLL” on to the white foam sheet. Cut each letter out and glue gun to the brown rectangle. Glue gun the entire piece to your shirt right in the middle.

That’s it! Simple and cute! Making this shirt large is great for those Halloweens where the weather doesn’t cooperate. Just slip it right over any coat.
