How to Make a Strawberry Costume

A strawberry costume is a creative, easy and inexpensive costume to create. With very few materials, you can transform yourself into a healthy berry that is ready for any costume party or Halloween activity. Make several strawberry costumes for your friends and you can all go together as a strawberry patch.

Cut two large triangles (rounded on the edges) into the red felt. The triangles should be about the size of the torso of the person wearing the costume. These triangle-shapes, when turned upside down, should look like the outline of a strawberry.

Use the hot glue gun to glue the edges of the upside-down triangles together. Leave open spaces where the arms and head will go through. Leave the bottom unglued as well.

Use the black felt marker to draw black dots all over the front and back of the "strawberry." The dots should be about the size of a silver dollar.

Cut about six to seven teardrop shapes in the green felt. Once they are all cut, arrange them into a "flower shape" by placing them in a circle (pointed ends turned outward), fanning them out, and overlapping them at the base. Use the hot glue gun to glue the bases together, making one secure piece. This will be the "hat" of the costume.

Cut two pieces of green ribbon about 6 to 8 inches in length. Hot glue one end of each ribbon to one side (underside) of the green felt "hat." Place the hat on your head and tie the loose ends of the ribbon in a bow below the chin.
