Ever since I made a Thing 1 and Thing 2 wig using Poly-Fil Fiber Fill, I’ve been looking for ways to use this product in other DIYs. Everyone loves cotton candy, and after making my faux smoke bomb pumpkins I decided to go big with my next project. This cotton candy costume is easy to  make and my daughter said it was very comfy and easy to wear!

Cotton Candy Costume Tutorial Supplies

Watch my short video tutorial to see exactly how I made this fun costume. Here is a brief summary of the steps I took:

  1. Hot glue the fiber fill onto the shirt. Be sure to watch the video for pointers on how to layer the Poly-Fil.
  2. Glue the stuffing onto the swim cap.
  3. Spray paint the Poly-Fil fiber fill using the candy pink paint. Add paint as needed to intensify the color.
  4. Make a cone and hot glue it to the cap.

Wear a light pink long sleeved shirt under the costume, and add pink pants or leggings. I brushed glittery highlighter all over her face and put on sparkly lip gloss to make her shine like sugar. Her hair has been pulled back and tucked away inside the swim cap.
