How to Make a Hamburger Costume
Create a simple costume based on a culinary favourite. (hamburger image by dinostock from

Make a hamburger costume that will steal the show at Halloween. Put the costume together in just a few hours if you have all the materials necessary. No sewing is required, making this a simple costume to put together at the last minute. Instead of just making a simple burger, add favourite toppings and condiments to the costume, or make it into a cheeseburger.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Brown fabric
  • Tan fabric
  • Hot glue gun

  1. 1

    Cut two large circles from the cardboard. They should reach from just below your collarbone to about your knees.

  2. 2

    Cut two circles from the brown fabric. They should measure three to six inches larger around than the cardboard circles. Place one cardboard circle on a fabric circle and glue the edges of the fabric around the edges of the cardboard. Leave six inches unglued. Repeat with the other circles.

  3. 3

    Stuff the two circles between the fabric and cardboard with Fiberfill to create the top and bottom of the bun. Cut seed shapes from the tan fabric and glue them randomly to the top bun.

  4. 4

    Place the two bun pieces on the floor with the wrong sides facing up. Cut out tomato and lettuce shapes from red and green felt, and cut slices resembling onions from white felt. The lettuce and tomato should extend over the edges. Glue them to the wrong side of the bun, around the edges.

  5. 5

    Cut two rectangles from the brown fabric, measuring 3 inches by 36 inches. Glue one end of each one to the wrong side of one bun. Glue the other ends to the wrong side of the opposite bun. This creates a hanger to place over your shoulders.

  6. 6

    Put the brown shirt and trousers on and place the hamburger over your head. Settle the strips on your shoulders, with one bun in front of you and one behind you. The piece with the sesame seeds should be against your front.

Tips and warnings

  • Add yellow felt for cheese.
  • Use the glue gun cautiously because it can get hot.
