Homemade Ketchup Costume

Who doesn’t like Ketchup? I was in desperate need of a costume for my freshmen year of high school because ninth graders have the theme of red. This was one of the first costumes I had ever made, but it was really quite simple.

Materials needed:
Laundry hamper
Lots of cardboard
Red long sleeved shirt
White Paper for Label and for top
Face paint
Sharpie

The base of the costume is a laundry hamper, and from the I attached long pieces of cardboard with glue gun. To help hold everything together, I used a red stretchy plastic material, kind of like plastic tablecloth material. Caution: Do not use glue gun with this material because it will burn right thought the thin plastic. I used lots of double sided sticky tape.

The top of the costume is actually open, but since it is so high up, nobody could tell.

On the back of the costume I included nutrition facts, but to jazz them up a bit, I super sized the nutrition facts to about proportional to the costume. Everything was 100 times the amount shown on the real ketchup bottle. Everyone got a kick out of that and I won “most spirited” at my school.

I didn’t have much money this year to purchase materials for my Fancy Ketchup Packet Costume. I went to the Dollar store and got a white shower curtain and grabbed a Red shirt out of my closet that "shrank". I glued the shower curtain so that it would fit like a skirt. Do not use a hot glue gun. I found out the hard way.

I cut out the back of the red shirt and sowed it on the front. I then printed out the words FANCY KETCUP and the McDonalds “M”. Glued them to the red shirt. I then cut the triangles on both ends of the shower curtain.

I got behind my truck and laid down like the packets my sons keep putting behind my wheel. The red cloth was extra from the “shrunken” red t shirt.

This was a great homemade costume that was easily made and my favorite part – Cheap!

Total:

$1 shower curtain
One old shirt
12 pieces of paper
Glue
