There are a lot of costumes that have been entered that are absolutely amazing and I don't think these even stand up to some of them......BUT.....I had to share...with the time I had to make them, the number of people who needed them and the fact that I only spent $52 ....I think they came out pretty good.....











You cant see it in any of the pictures but I put the color of each crayon going down the side-back.....and with the left over material, we all got bags to carry our goodies in.....we did hear a lot of comments/compliments......and a lot of people stopping us to take pictures.....even someone from a local news paper

Thanks for looking... hope everyone had a great HALLOWEEN!!!

They  look so great! I wish I had been able to go with y'all.  I would have fought with Karen to be the PINK one.  Cheesy Poor Kendra, with her double black eyes.  Cry Will apparently missed the memo that he was supposed to wear black pants...haha   Wink

This is awesome! I was a purple crayon for Halloween a few years back, but instead of making little pointy hats I painted a witch hat purple, so everyone thought I was a purple witch! You did an awesome job! Cheesy

These turned out great. Did you use fleece for the hats? Hope your pictures are in the paper!

I have seen crayons before, but none as well done and comfortable looking as yours!  Great job!  No one would guess you did it so quickly.

This is a really neat idea!  Don't think I've ever seen a box of crayons on the loose before.  Smiley I love the little hats.  Your Crayola labels are incredibly precise.  Are they stenciled, or appliqued on?

What a great group idea! I drew a little design on my Halloween costume and now my boss wants me to plan the department's costumes for next year. Perhaps we shall all go as crayons, or office supplies.

The labels were one piece of felt with heat and bond ultra on the back....i then had to write CRAYOLA backwards... actually I drew it forward, flipped the paper over.. put it on a window and traced it so that it was backwards...and then traced it on the heat and bond and ironed it to the felt... then came the hard...well, time consuming part..... to cut all the letters out.... without ruining the outer part of the felt so that it could be the label.....I pondered with how to do this for a bit because I wanted the color of the shirt to show through... and this was how it came about.... the color words on the back were just cut out letters that I ironed on.... the same color felt as the front.... I sat with a box of crayons so that I could draw "CRAYOLA" and the colors the same as crayola had it.....I know a bit OCD, but what can I say

This is WONDERFUL!!!  My favorite part is the hats- I was wondering how you could get fleece to stand up like that; thanks for the interfacing secret!  I agree with the poster who mentioned this being a group costume you could add on to later.  What a great idea, and kudos on your speed!

when I started making them we were not real sure how many of us there would be and that is why this seemed like such a good idea...... (you know there are hundreds of colors of crayons)...

Very cute and creative. I love family costumes.

we have been doing the family costumes for a few years now and they seem to be a big hit......last year we were cavemen (women)... will have to post those pictures after this is all over.... and the year before that we were jail birds, black and white stripes, numbers and all..... had chains around our ankles connecting us all together...... we just have fun thinking of new ideas.....

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
