DIY HALLOWEEN | Fab 5 Gymnast


It it officially October, which can mean only one thing, time to plan for Halloween! I am beyond jazzed (and so is my 13-year-old self) to partner with the perfect place to complete your costume, Claire’s! Stay tunes all month for a handful of head-to-toe DIY looks, and tips and tricks for creating them yourself!  

With everyone still on an Olympic high, who’s better to pay homage to then the Fab 5. Get the look of this crew known for their love of accessories including clips, scrunchies and the mother of all bling: a gold metal. 

Get the look: Multi-Colored Glitter and Dot Barrette SetEye Glitter Set, Quickly Cute Scrunchy Set
Crystal and Silver Flower Stud Earrings

1. Get the signature hairstyle by first putting your hair in a ponytail, then wrap around a couple scrunchies but only pullyour pony halfway through the final time for a podium worthy ‘do. 
2. Taming the flyways are a must, with clips the “more is always better” mantra applies
3. Makeup stays at minimum except when it comes the eyes, pile on the glitter shadow so judges can see that twinkle in your eye as you go for the gold. 
4. DIY time! Create your metal by painting a coaster with metallic acrylic paint. Let dry. Then superglue the ends of a piece of ribbon to the back of the coaster.  

Disclosure: I Spy DIY’s Halloween costume series is made in collaboration with Claire’s. Product and compensation was provided. Ideas and inspiration are by I Spy DIY, and yours to enjoy. For more head over to

    This was awesome and hilarious! The half bun/ponytail thing with scrunchie and massive amount of clips holding what appears to be nothing in place always cracks me up! But they are amazing athletes so I think they’re the only people who can get away with all that 🙂

    Just so you know, it’s medal (not metal) when you are talking about sporting events. I love the costume!
