$10 Scarlett O’Hara Costume
Craftster user grenouille78 made an amazing costume for Dollar Store Challenge Round 2. The rules are simple: spending $10 or less, make something fabulous and hopefully totally unexpected out of items bought at a dollar store. The entries were all amazing, but grenouille78’s reimagining of the iconic Scarlett O’Hara spring dress is really inspiring. So what was used for this costume?

  • hula hoop
  • no-skid kitchen mat
  • green drawstring laundry bag
  • package of 200 coffee filters
  • shamrock garland
  • 2 white tablecloths
  • package of garden stakes
  • 2 water noodles
  • —————-
    TOTAL COST= $10

As we’ve mentioned before, the only thing you really need for a costume is some imagination. Even cardboard boxes and the clothes from your closet can be transformed into a Halloween alter ego.
