Introduction: Last Minute Ceiling Fan Pun Costume

I saw someones Ceiling Fan Costume online and knew I had to do it after finding pom poms at the dollar store!  It's a really fun, quick, last minute costume that is perfect for Halloween!

Inspiration, but you will probably see it multiple places on the internet.

Step 1: Supplies

This can very.  Use what you have around, it's all about making a quick and easy costume.  But here is what I used.

  • Plain t-shirt - doesn't have to be white like mine
  • Paint or Tape - we'll talk about this
  • Pom Poms - or make some
  • Accessories! - I had a black skirt, maroon knee high socks, eye shadow and other makeup, nail polish, ribbons and glue glitter for my face.  And, of course, tennies!

Step 2: Shirt

Okay, I painted my shirt, but another quick alternative is to just cut pieces of tape into strips and use that to "write" on the shirt.

I chose to paint and I chose red and silver because those were the colors in the pom poms I found.  I painted thick letters in silver first and then painted thinner red letters inside the silver ones.  Just for the heck of it, I mixed elmer's glue and glitter to decorate the "Go"s.  I had extra so I painted some on my face.  I was going to use face paint on my face, but I'm glad I used the glue and glitter.  It was so easy to clean off, it just pulled off in one strip!  And I think I cleaned some pores while I was at it :)

Have fun decorating!

Step 3: Accessorize

Now you need your extras!

I chose a black skirt and knee high maroon socks to match the maroon in the rest of my outfit!

I put on makeup and painted my nails sparkly red, because, why not!

Tie a couple ribbons on your pig tails and you are good to go!
