It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me or reads this little space that I have a BIG love affair with Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes.. like it’s one of my favorite days of the year when they bring them back out! I was hoping for an easy costume and saw a few on Pinterest that I liked but ultimately decided to do my own PSL costume!
White or ivory/cream felt – 23 cents at Walmart!
Orange felt – seriously 23 cents from Walmart!
Hot glue gun (and sticks)
Printed Starbucks Logo- just google image search will do!
Once you have all your materials, start with cutting out the Starbucks logo. Once that’s been cut, I put the logo on a piece of felt and cut around it so it would have a little more substance before attaching it to the slip. You can skip this though and simply glue just the paper logo!
Next, cut 8-10 round felt circles – You can use the logo for these too so they’re all uniform and the same size (that’s what I did!) or just free hand it if you want different sizes. Once they are cut, fold them in half to make the “foam”. I doubled mine up on a few pieces and other pieces I left single.
I glued the fabric together (on the double pieces) and then attached them to the slip. I attached them to the whole top part and a small part of the straps to hold it up more!
Then glue the logo onto the center of the dress. I put a piece of cardboard in between the slip so the hot glue didn’t seep through to the backside!
Optional: cut out a rectangle on the orange felt and attach it to the bottom of the “cup” so you can write in “what was ordered” – PSL with black marker. I also wrote my “name” on top of that and since Starbucks usually spells everyone’s name wrong (am I right?!) I made sure to make mine wrong to!
And that’s it! I did notice a lot of people put straws on their costumes but let’s be real.. a PSL doesn’t have a straw unless you get the cold press (if there is one?!) and I’m not all about that so I skipped the straw! Pretty simple and cute for a fun night out or even for a Halloween party at work or trick-or-treating with kids!
And of course.. you need a PSL with you 🙂 You could even use a Starbucks bag for a purse if you felt really inspired!
The hubs and I decided on doing a couple’s costume – otherwise I’d be wearing this out tonight! 🙂
Have a safe weekend!
