Tea Bag Halloween Costume

(Used with permission by www.coolest-parties.com)

"For my teabag costume, I purchased a few yards of Crinoline, a couple yards of cording and a box of Lipton teabags. I cut out two huge rectangles the same size. I then laid one on top of the other and sewed the sides and bottom.

Open up the top and fill about 1/3 with dried leaves. Fold the top in on both corners making a point and fold down like the top of a teabag. Cut off the top of the teabag box and shape like the paper tag of a teabag. Hot melt glue to 1 yard of the cording and then sew the cord to the top of the bag.

I made two complete bags and attached them with fabric straps at the top so that I could just throw it over my head. I wore a long sleeve black shirt, black tights and black shorts under it and carried a teapot and large strainer!"

So funny..! Halloween is a great excuse to dress up and be silly.

OK, now *that* is the coolest one yet! (Or maybe I should say "hottest" since it IS a tea bag!) When I open my tearoom one day, I want her on the sidewalk outside to greet visitors ...

ha ha What a great idea, Angela!

Have just discovered your blog via Melissa's. What a great read! Could I recommend another book, which is "A nice cup of tea and a sitdown" by Nicey and Wifey, published in the UK. It's an amusing and wry look at the UK tea and biscuit tradition.

Gail - I appreciate the recommendation. I have not read Nicey and Wifey's book, but regularly visit their website. Isn't it a hoot! I love it. I will definitely feature "A Nice Cup of Tea and a Sitdown" as the Tea Book of the Week soon. Cheers!

I remember you sharing this idea on ATAA. What a great idea. Isn't it fun to dress up for Halloween? Thanks for sharing.

I love it. Can't wait to take out my sewing machine.

I just saw beautiful silver earrings in the shape of a teabag today.

I went to the honor tour on August 28th....it was a beautiful thing...to see people running the country, instead of the other way around.
