Homemade Mister Peanut Halloween Costume

Every Halloween it is difficult to think of an original idea and homemade costumes are better than any costume you can buy in a store. SO this year I decided to make a Homemade Mister Peanut Halloween Costume and didn't know where to begin.

My friend Kristen and I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics and found a piece of foam for the body of the peanut and yellow remnant fabrics that were perfect!! I laid down on the foam and we cut a peanut shape then a hole in the middle that my face could peek out of. Attaching the foam we just used cheap elastic then slipped it over my head. Fabric glue was the only thing that worked to keep the fabric on the foam.

For the gigantic hat we used cardboard and construction paper. That ended up being the hardest part making the hat. We had to add little details to make the peanut complete. The cane we found at another costume store, it was brown so we wrapped black electric tape around it.

For the shoes we used black patent leather shoes found at a thrift store with sleeves cut off of a shirt for the white covering over the shoes. A monacal which is not in the picture we used black wire and bent it into a circle shape and the peanut was a success!

Lots of compliments and Mr. Peanut is a costume to remember.

Coolest Homemade Mr. Peanut Halloween Costume 7

Homemade Mr. Peanut Halloween Costume

We got this idea for a Homemade Mr. Peanut Halloween Costume from an online source, but it didn’t have a picture, so I wanted to share our finished creation.

We used a twin size “egg crate” mattress cover—the perfect color. I folded it in half, and cut a hole in the fold for my son’s head. I shaped it into a rough hourglass shape by trimming the edges with scissors. I hot glued the long edges together, leaving several inches near the fold open on each side for arms, and leaving the bottom open to slip over his head. I used a shoelace woven loosely through the foam around the waist to make a better fit. I hot glued a top hat on top, and made a monocle out of black felt with a piece of saran wrap between.

My son had a lot of fun wearing it, and it was warm enough to go out at night.

This Homemade Mister Peanut Halloween Costume was the funnest costume I ever created. In MN its cold during Halloween so I stayed nice and toasty! For the body I used faux wool material cut out in the shape of a peanut and gathered elastic through the bottom for the bubble effect.

Next I sponge painted brown spots all over. I constructed the hat using 3 cereal boxes and one pizza box and spray painted it black. I wore black tights and a shirt along with white gloves. I had saddle shoe slippers from high school so I wore them.

To top it off, I pinned a left turn sign on me. Not only was I Mr. Peanut, but the sign made me a "left nut".

For my homemade Planters Peanut Woman Costume, I cutout two peanut shapes from beige felt and attached them with fabric strips, and drew in the texture with permanent marker. I made the cane out of an old Christmas candy cane wrapped in black hockey tape.

I have a question
by: mr peanut fan

What do you mean by you attached the peanut shapes with fabric strips?

Sew Happy
by: Jenn

I am guessing that the fabric strips might be strips of Velcro sewed to the sides. Cute costume. Hope this helps.
