Homemade Halloween Costumes: Ty Beanie Baby

Submitted by Mary Erin Campbell of Ankara, Turkey

Ty beanie baby

Never too old for a Ty Beanie Baby...

Remember when beanie babies were the the "thing?" Well, this costume will bring back memories and everyone will enjoy some good laughs.

Supplies: animal ears or hat (or in my case, mop head), white poster paper, red paper, and shirt that co-ordinates with the beanie baby animal you chose.


1. Make your Ty sign...

Fold the poster board in half and cut out a heart (be careful not to cut the fold). Cut the red paper in the same shape as your poster board heart and cut out the letters "ty" from the center. Inside of the heart, you can include your name, birthday, hobbies, barcode, etc. Hole-punch the top of the heart and string a piece of yarn through it so that it can hang around your neck.

2. Make your headpiece (optional)...

If you already have animal ears or hat, then there is no need for you to make a head piece, but I had to make one. I made mine out of a mop head that I found for about a dollar at the store. It was tiger striped, so I just took the plastic mop connector off and sewed one seam down the middle to hold the mop head together. Then just wear it on your head with pride! :D

3. Wear your coordinating shirt and pants.
