I didn't have a lot of time and saw this costume on this website!
I started with a laundry basket and cut out a hole in the bottom that was big enough for my son's legs to fit through.
I bought a package of Easy Mac and removed the label from one of the cups. I cut it into sections and scanned the nutrition info portion, the directions portion and the label. I was able to blow up the nutrition info and directions and print each of them on an 8x11 sheet from my computer but I had to take the label to Staples to be reprinted on a larger sheet.
I purchased 2 pieces of blue poster board and cut and glued them to fit around the basket. I then glued the nutrition info on the back of the basket, the directions on the side and the label on the front.
I also purchased 3 pieces of yellow poster board and cut 2 of them up into pieces, which I rolled to look like macaroni and glued together. I then glued the pieces of macaroni to a rectangular piece of yellow cardboard.
Once my son stepped into the basket and it was adjusted to sit on his shoulders, I placed the piece of poster board with the macaroni on it into the basket in front of him and pushed it down enough so the poster board was not showing and it was secure enough to stay in.
It was an easy costume to make and everyone loved it!
Our daughter LOVES Mac and Cheese! When I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween of course as a 2 year old she said Mac and Cheese. So my husband and I put our brains together to make her a Mac and Cheese Costume.
We use a push cart platform for most of the girls costumes. We started with a blue round toy box. He stenciled with yellow spray paint Mac and Cheese on the front. We also used about 50 PVC Elbows spray painted yellow. I bought a yellow sweat suit and attached a lot of the elbows to her with clear thread.
My husband screwed several elbow noodles down to the floor of the platform along with the blue bowl. I put a pillow in the bottom of the bowl to make it more comfortable for her and she had a blast riding around in a giant bowl of Mac & Cheese! The whole thing cost me less then $40
I saw one of these homemade easy mac costumes on this site, thought it was so cute, so I made it and added my own renditions. I used paper towel and toilet paper for the noodles. I dyed a workout top with RIT dye (yellow and orange - perfect cheese color). I used a laundry basket for the shape. I had a fork headband.
My daughter is a bowl of macaroni and cheese because it is her favorite food! This Mac-N-Cheeza Costume is made from a laundry hamper that was covered in blue felt. The cheese is yellow felt. For the macaroni we used toilet paper tubes and wrapped them in felt.
