I made this homemade salad bowl original Halloween costume for my boyfriend, James, and it was a big hit at a Halloween party that we had attended this year. He was a salad bowl, and I was spaghetti and meatballs.

Materials used to make this homemade salad bowl original Halloween costume:

For the large salad bowl, I used a cardboard box large enough to loop around the body and rest on the shoulders and stomach. I then lined each side of the cardboard with contact paper for the 'wooden bowl' look. This contact paper is available at Home Depot for about $7.

The large salad utensils were made from two long wrapping paper rolls. Card board cut outs that resembled the tip of a fork and spoon were attached to one end of each roll. They were covered with the remaining contact paper.

The lettuce was made with different shades of crumpled green tissue paper that I taped along the sides of the bowl; red balloons were used for the cherry tomatoes; colored foam paper, felt, and poster board were the carrot pieces, egg slices, red bell peppers, black olives, onions, and cucumbers. The egg and cucumbers were made by layering colored pieces of felt and foam paper together. I affixed all these pieces to the green tissue paper with double-sided tape and craft glue.

The lettuce hat was made with left over tissue paper and extra veggie pieces.

The total cost of this homemade salad bowl original Halloween costume was no more than $25.

I really like the way that this costume turned out. It looks as if a lot of time was spent making all the veggies but after reading your instructions, it seems pretty easy. I have a health conscious tween who loves salads. I will make this costume for my daughter this Halloween. Thanks for sharing.

Wow!

The only thing I don't get is how to make the bowl part. How is it staying on his shoulders?

Coolest Homemade Quaker Oats Costume

Homemade Quaker Oats Costume

Homemade Quaker Oats Costume

This year I went trick or treating as a box of Quaker Oats.

The Homemade Quaker Oats Costume was made using 4 poster boards, two red and two blue. They were taped together with red duct tape to make 2 rectangles with red on bottom and blue on top. Later the rectangles were taped together on their longer side to make an attempted cylinder. The fat yellow lines were made of paper.

The logo and other graphics (including the weight in the bottom left corner!) were blown up and printed on a computer. An oval was cut out of the top of the rectangle. My head was able to peep through as the Quaker man does on a real box of oatmeal. I wore a black colonial style hat, white wig, white scarf and black jacket underneath the costume. Thick ribbons were attached to the inside of the costume using a few layers of duct tape so that they rested on my shoulders and I could support the costume.

Finally, two arm holes were cut out of the front. They provided just enough room for my arms to reach out and grab a piece of candy!

The costume was a bit awkward to walk in by the end of the night. Unfortunately it rained on Halloween so the poster boards got soaked, but they did not flop even when wet. It took a little while to complete, but the costume turned out to be a hit with everyone who saw it!

Coolest Oreo Cookie Costume with milk trick or treat bag

Oreo cookies are my daughters favorite, so what would be better than an Oreo Cookie Costume!. I cut the "cookie" pieces of out card board and painted the insides black and then enlarged the details of the cookie and traced them on black foam sheets. I used 3mm thick foam sheets and cut all the pieces out to get the raised effect. I then glued them onto the cardboard and painted the whole thing black.

I attached the "cookie" pieces with an elastic band (the kind you find in sweatpants) and made straps to go over her shoulders. I then hot glued a sheet of white felt in between to get the filling. I had my daughter dress in all white to complete the look! She looked good enough to eat!

I also made her "milk" trick or treat bag, I bought a white canvas bag and glued on the pieces of felt (cause you can't have Oreo's without milk!).
