Last Minute DIY Macra-Madé in Heaven Costume

DIY Macra-Made in Heaven Costume

Puns and Halloween are my lifeblood. Nothing makes me happier than seeing Studio DIY’s pun-kins or all the clever cocktail names everytime I’m on Pinterest. Couple that with my desire to have a Halloween costume that is essentially already in my closet, plus one of the biggest DIY trends of the year, and you get this gem! Macra-Madé in Heaven.

My sister is the one who came up with this pun. I wanted to do a DIY trend and essentially threw a list at her and she delivered!

You’ll Need:
angel wings (ours is from Joann’s Halloween Maker section- $10 right now!)
rope halo
macrame/crochet dress*
cotton cord

*Ok, our dress is technically crocheted, but if anyone actually points that out you’ve found the other DIY-er in the room.

DIY Rope Halo

To make the halo, I just threaded some leftover rope with the same wire from last year’s Hallo-Queen crown, tied it off, and glued it down.

From there we just used bobby pins to keep it in Cam’s braided bun. If you use a wire color similar to your hair, it’s pretty easy to hide 🙂

With such a basic base, you can get really creative with props! Besides cotton cord, you can make a giant “Made in Heaven’ clothing tag, macrame a headband halo, or try making wings out of rope! You’re really only limited by how much time you’ve spent procrastinating a costume 😉

I’m still deciding between this one or the Operation Game, Designer Edition from last year. What are you guys dressing up as?
