I thought of making my one year old baby into the Pillsbury Dough Boy because of the cute “woo-who” sound that everyone would remember upon seeing the costume.
It was easy to make. I shaped the head like a hood, leaving room to stuff it into the round form of the dough boy. I then made an all-in-one suit with white stretchy material. I put sweats and a sweatshirt on my son to make him chubby and give him the cute belly! I shaped a piece of thin cardboard from a cereal box into a hat, and then made the hat just a bit bigger so that it would fluff out but still stand. I sewed the hat to the head just to limit the amount of pieces I would need to remember.
For the rolling pin, I used the inner cardboard of a paper-towel roll, wrapped it with brown fabric and stuffed the ends. It was very lightweight so he could hold it all day without getting tired. He carried his Homemade Pillsbury Dough Boy Costume real well, always with a smile on his face.

I found this Pillsbury Doughboy Halloween costume idea from this site and I had to do it! The hat was so easy! The bottom is construction paper that I stapled to the correct size and then cut in half. I lined the inside with felt to make it soft and cover the staples.
He hated the feel of the paper so I covered it with cotton fabric and glued it. The top is white tissue paper that I glued to the inside of the hat and fluffed to the shape I wanted. I used double sided tape to stick the paper together so it held it's shape. I cut the circle from blue felt and used white scrapbooking letter stickers for the word Pillsbury.
He wore a white long sleeved onesie and white tights. A handkerchief made from a scrap of cotton fabric and a wooden spoon and he was good to go!
I spent $6 and it took 20 minutes. He was a big hit, everyone loved it and people were taking pictures of him to show their friends! Thanks for the great idea!

It started with a white painter’s coverall provided by a friend – also available at hardware stores for about $5. I always like to have an item for the genesis of a costume. Our family brainstormed what it could be for our 10 year old son’s costume. White rabbit? Astronaut? Snowman? Our son finally settled on the Pillsbury Doughboy Costume!
A very easy, no-sew costume. We picked up inexpensive white gloves ($2) and a chef’s hat ($5). After downloading a Pillsbury logo, it was spray mounted to the hat. The kerchief was made from remnant fabric. Two pillows were attached around his torso with belts. Added a rolling pin from the kitchen drawer and it was done!
A cookie sheet would be another cute accessory but we decided against it in favor of the trick or treat sack (white of course!).
He was a hit. His principal happened to be a chef and we took many cute pictures of them together!
This is my Homemade Pillsbury Doughboy Halloween Costume. I always try to do creative fun costumes and everyone seemed to like it. It wasn't too hard to make and was really soft and comfortable to wear at Halloween parties.
To make it I bought a chef's hat for $13 and cut out a picture of the Pillsbury logo and stapled it right on the hat. Next I made the mask just with poster board cut out two eyes and drew two big blue eyes as well as a mask and stapled that right to the bottom of my hat. Next I bought a extra large white sweatshirt and stuffed it with two pillows and wore white sweatpants(wear layers of pants to look extra puffy)white oven mitts and shoes. Finally I held a rolling pin with a picture of him.
