DIY Halloween Costume Award Ribbons (+ Free Printable)

There ain’t no party like a costume party! Even though you might not be trick-or-treating much past your elementary school years, chances are you’ll as an adult you’ll still throw (or attend) a few costume parties in honor of Halloween. Encourage all the attendees to up their costume game with a costume contest and these DIY award ribbons. You can never believe what people have up their sleeve (sometimes literally) when a Halloween costume competition is involved.

Things You’ll Need

Free printable costume awards (Click here to download.)
Black cardstock
Flat-backed pins
Scissors
Glue stick
Hot glue (for pinwheel-style medallions)

To make the pinwheel-style medallions, cut two strips of cardstock to be 1 1/2 by 11 inches. Glue two ends together so you have one long strip. Then fold it, accordion style.

When completely folded, glue together the two ends, forming a circle. Let dry.

When dry, push the circle flat, as shown.

Run some hot glue on top of the medallion, and adhere one of the award cut-outs. Hold it down until it’s dry (or place a light weight on top — otherwise it won’t stay put).

Then cut out two rectangles from cardstock and trim off a triangle shape from the bottom of each, forming the ends of your ribbon. Glue in place on the back of the medallion. Glue a pin to the back.

To make the simpler award ribbons, simply find a circular object that is slightly larger than your award cut-outs (I used a spool of ribbon). Trace around it onto cardstock and cut out the circle, either smooth around the circle or in a scalloped pattern. Use the same method as previous for cutting the ribbon pieces.

Glue together all of your pieces and then glue one of the pins onto the back of each.
