My son really wanted to be Mr. Peanut and since I couldn’t find a peanut costume I tried to make my own. I bought gold colored felt and cut two shapes of a peanut out and sewed the two together.
I added some black felt for the peanut markings. I bought a hat monocle and white gloves. I also borrowed a cane from my grandparents.
Total Spent: $10
The idea for this costume came from looking at house hold items such as planter’s peanuts.
I started with using garden fencing, wired it up in the correct shape. I paper mached it, painted it applied the face and lettering and I was done.
The total time for making this costume was about 15 hours.
