Dress up in a Green M&M Halloween Costume! This is a woman's DIY costume but can easily be adapted for any adult or child.
Do you love to dress up for Halloween? I usually take a backseat and simply watch, but this year I mixed things up and made my own costume.
But don't worry, this DIY costume is super simple to make and came to together very quickly.

Green M&M Halloween Costume Tutorial
To begin, let's take a look at what the Green M&M looks like. I choose the green one because she is sassy and is one of the two female M&M characters.
See isn't she cute!
The only part of the costume we need to DIY is to add the white M to the front of the green nightshirt.
M&M Cut File
For the M cut file, I went to Etsy and found this cut file that would work perfectly! M&M Faces and Letter "M"
Once the file is purchased, upload the SVG file into Cricut Design Space. Ungroup the design, and delete all of the pieces except for the M.
Size the M according to what the M will be applied on and how big you want it to be. For my M, I made it about as big as I could with a width of 11 inches.
Cutting the M out of Iron-on Vinyl
Lay the sheet of White Iron-on Vinyl onto the standard grip map with the shiny side up.
Make sure to Mirror the image before you cut.
Follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space to cut the image.
Once cut, remove the Iron-on from the mat and weed the excess material so you are only left with the M.
Applying the Iron-On Vinyl for your Green M&M Costume
To know exactly what temperature and time to set your EasyPress 2, visit the online Cricut EasyPress Interactive Quick Reference Guide. Enter the Heat-Transfer Material and the Base Material and the guide gives you all the information you need. It even tells you if you should peel the backing while the material is still warm or if you should let it cool!
Lay the shirt on top of the Easy Press Mat, and iron the shirt to remove any wrinkles.
Place design down with the liner side up.
Apply the heat press for the specified time.
My fabric specified a warm peel, so I let the vinyl partially cool, for only 30 seconds or so. Then carefully pulled back the clear liner sheet.
It worked like a charm!
Dressing up in your the Green M&M Costume
Now that everything is made, all that is left is to put it all on!
I seriously love how comfy the shirt/dress is, and since I am a sock lover anyways this get-up is totally my style.
But my most favorite part of the costume is the lipstick. When else do you get to wear green lipstick?
So what do you think? Is this Green M&M Costume something you would wear?
