I saw something similar on this site and thought this Chef Boyardee costume would be the perfect costume for my son.
This costume was easy to make: I used silver duct tape, a red plastic table cloth, blown up computer scan pictures of the wording from the front of the can spray, glue window insulation strips and a round container my mother in law was able to get from work.
I spray glued the red table cloth around the can, taped the insulation strips around the rim on the top and bottom of the can so it puffed out a bit. I cut the hole for the face; spray glued the pictures that we scanned from the actual can onto the computer. I cut the tab top from cardboard and used the silver duct tape to cover it and hot glued it to the top of the can.
Total Spent: $5
