so…i thought it would be fun to make some printables for costume awards for Halloween! Real simple to make and so much fun!
I used two scrapbook papers…two 12 inch strips makes a perfect medallion. (about 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide)
we go back to old school and just making the basic fan shape and hot gluing the ends together. it kind of looks like a cupcake liner. you push down the middle and hot glue the circle right on it (printables down below!)
and then i ran out of scrapbook paper…
so i used crepe paper! loved how they turned out with them too! same basic how to!
cut some streamers for the bottom and just hot glued to back!
i’m pretty much obsessed with these. i think we will be getting “awards” throughout the year.
best homework doer.
best at going to bed on time.
best at refilling the toilet paper.
best at not whining about what mom makes for dinner.
I even slapped a basic one on a formula can to hold my halloween “treats”
this is where i share that me and husband got in a fight about me handing out glow sticks and not candy and that kids go trick or treating to get candy.
and then it turned into us harassing every kid we have come across into polling whether they would like a glow stick for Halloween or candy.
it’s currently 70 /30 my favor.
I even made a blank one that you could print out and write up whatever you wanted (or get on pic monkey and make your own)
or you could you just do 1st -3rd place (would be perfect pumpkin carving competitions too)
we had our big family party…and i wanted to make sure that everyone won one…so i made lots of “vague ones” a couple pretty much the same one..like overall best..grand champion. etc…. so no one was left with hurt feelings (except my nephew who ended up with most disgusting….i should note that he didn’t dress up.
and that’s what he gets for not dressing up! (he wasn’t upset! he laughed. i don’t want any hate mail about being a bad aunt)
and we also had no pretty princess as our party…so an adult male got that one. (he also didn’t dress up)
Here are some other ones we thought of later….
Best fictional character
Best Fairytale character
Most Sportiest Costume
Best non fictional character
Best character from a book
Let me know if you think of any! leave me a comment!
love these! i’m also glad to hear that i’m not the only one whose children constantly complain about dinner . . do children actually like any kind of food? other than candy?!
These are great! So glad I found them this year!
I was going to write on the blank ones but was curious how you do it on pic monkey? Is the template on there?
You have to upload the blank one and then add font and text there.
Did you put any kind of pin on the backs or did you just hand them out? We are having our annual Girl Scout party next Thursday and I just love your stuff. You’re just Martha! Thank you so much!
we just handed them out! I’m sure you could make some kind of closure if you want to pin it on! and THANKS!
