Coolest Homemade Grapes Costume

This grapes costume was a relatively simple costume to make. She wore a purple sweatsuit (with a hood) and I made, out of a big piece of felt from the fabric store, an A0line shaped dress. I am not a big sewer – don’t worry, it’s easy to hide flaws with this thing.

I cut open the back and added ribbons to tie it closed, so that way it would be easy to get the balloons on and off over clothing. I blew up the balloons (from the dollar store) and safety pinned them on.

I pinned to the top of the hood some leaves I had made out of felt as well as a felt stem (I used a marker to color the stem and make it more realistic). I also cut out leaf shapes as shoe covers. I put ribbons to tie around the ankle and the bottom of the shoe.

  1. She looks adorable! What a brilliant idea!

    Just wondering how you got the balloons stuck on her backside…so it was comfortable for her to sit and move?

  2. Loved the idea and the baby is super cute! The costume is relatively simple to make and it’s eye catching too, though it might be uncomfortable to do anything but stand in it.
