Coolest Homemade Bun in the Oven Halloween Costume

I loved the idea of being a “Bun in the Oven” for my Halloween costume, but, being only 16 weeks along, I didn’t have a very big “bun” yet.

Still, I wanted to do something fun since I hadn’t been pregnant during Halloween for my first child! So I grabbed my favorite apron, printed off a color picture of bread baking in the oven, and typed up baking instructions (Bake with Care! Cook Time Remaining 24 weeks, Expect Finished Bun in Mid-April). I laminated the bread picture and baking instructions, and then stapled them onto my apron. (Hmmm, hope I can pull those off again!)

Then I bought a cheap Chef’s hat at a local party store, and brought a few baking spoons with me to parties and trick-or-treating. Voila!

Total Homemade Bun in the Oven Halloween Costume Cost: $2.99 (chef’s hat), $1.98 (color printing).

  1. Thanks for this idea! My “bun” is not very big yet either since I will be due April 12ish next year. I like how simple and inexpensive this idea is.

  2. Loveeee this idea!!! I am going to use it.. I have a big bun :) due Dec 8th.. Where did u find that oven I really like yours? Thanks for the great idea!

  3. I love your idea because I can wear it (comfortably) to work and I too am not showing much yet. I knew I wanted to do a bun in the oven but I love that you took it a step farther and got an apron, hat and utensils. So cute! Thank you for posting this!! I am definitely going to ‘copy’ your idea!

  4. I completely love you idea! I would much rather not carry around a cardboard box all day and thanks to you i wont have to! This is a very cool idea

  5. I was getting so tired of searching for costume ideas. Since I am at 28 weeks, I’m having a hard time finding a costume that fits and is comfortable! This costume is perfect for work! Also, It will last through the 2 parties I’m going to this weekend! Thank You for your creativity!

  6. I really want to do this too! SO much easier than hauling a big cardboard box around! Can you post a link to the oven pic you used – I can only seem to find the same one super small through Google Images … it gets all pixelly when I blow it up :( Thanks!!

  7. I am 32 weeks and also didn’t feel like wearing a cardboard box. Thanks for the great idea! Also, I found the same oven image on a Google search and I copied and pasted it to Microsoft Word. Then you can enlarge and print it there. Hope that helps! Happy Halloween and good luck ladies!

  8. I’m 28 weeks pregnant and just made this costume for a Halloween party. I was able to find the exact oven if you just Google ‘bun in the oven’ and click on images. However I decided to take it as a model and make my own oven. It was really easy to make. My husband is going as the Bun Maker. Can’t wait to show it off tonight. Total cost for both of us: $8.99
