Getting the clothes ready

1. Get the clothes ready

You’ll wear a white t-shirt, white jeans, white socks, and white sneakers. Now let’s get the costume ready.

Starbucks logo on computer screen

2. Make the DIY coffee sleeve for your body

Search for the Starbucks logo online. Print onto the transfer paper with a color printer as big as you can make it.

Measuring felt for DIY Starbucks costume

Measure the tan colored felt to fit around your waist and for the length you’d like.

Cut out Starbucks logo on felt

Cut the Starbucks logo. Follow the directions for your transfer paper for ironing or sticking.

Adding velcro tape

Attach the velcro tape to the inside of the tan felt along one edge with the two velcro pieces stuck together.

Folding felt over

Fold over the felt edge to meet the velcro pieces. Peel off the sticky part of the velcro tape so it sticks to the folded edge. This will look like a loop or a coffee cup sleeve.

Starbucks logo in center of felt costume

Place the logo in the center. Slip that on to wear around your chest and waist.

Painting straw

3. Make the trick or treat basket

Prepare the straw first. Paint the paper towel or wrapping paper roll with the dark green paint. You don’t have to paint the entire “straw” - only the part that shows. Set aside to dry.

Measuring brown paper bag

Measure the brown paper bag to go around the white painter’s bucket. Leave some of the white bucket to show so it looks like a real Starbucks cup.

Taping the bucket

Cut the paper and tape to the bucket.

Sticking Starbucks logo onto bucket

Print a smaller Starbucks logo, center it and tape to the brown paper.

Straw in bucket

Put the straw into the bucket.

Making the headband

4. Make the headband

Tape a disposable coffee cup lid to the headband. 

Decorating sneakers

5. Decorate the sneakers

On a piece of paper, write “Caution” and “Hot”. Cut out the words and tape to the back of your sneakers.
