Coolest Three Little Pigs Costume

We have twins and a singleton and are always looking for “3” ideas. We started with pink turtlenecks and leggings from Old Navy. I purchased the felt pig masks from a craft site and then copied them to make one more so that I could be the Mother Pig. I also ended up making one out of gray felt so their dad could be the Big Bad Wolf.

The houses were made from small boxes purchased from an office supply store. We cut off the bottom flaps so that they could walk. To make the shoulder straps we cut off two flaps and made a hole in the top for their heads to go through and then connected the sides with electrical tape.

We cut holes for the windows and painted the doors and window frames. The straw house was made by hot-glue gunning straw over the walls and roof. The stick house was similarly made by gluing sticks we picked up from the yard on the 4 walls. The roof was then painted black and I made the roof tiles by cutting half ovals out of sticky sided black felt and placing them down in an overlapping pattern.

Finally, to make the brick house, I painted the walls white first with acrylic paint. I then outlined the brick pattern with quarter inch masking tape (quilter’s tape–from a fabric store) and sponged brick red and black paint over the white. I then peeled off the tape once the paint was dry and made the roof in the same manner as that of the stick house.

The kids got lots of compliments on this Homemade Three Little Pigs Costume and they were pretty easy for them to get around in (no falls!). We did have some major fighting about who got to be the brick house.

  1. Great idea…i have triplets and they will be in a bike-a-thon with 4 people and need costumes the forth kid can be the big bad wolf. They can’t ride a bike in a box so I’m going to convert the costume and decorate shirts like this. They won last year with thing 1, thing 2 and thing 3. The 4th kid wore opposite colors and his shirt said, “Me and my things” they won 1st place. Thank you!

  2. We have a book character day at school they started last year. We have three kids but we’re pullin in a fourth kid w/ us this year! We’re goin w/ the three little pigs and the wolf this year! We went with cat and the hat last year the two girls was thing one and thing two and the lil boy was cat in the hat. I made it all from home and it was soo cute! We won the whole contest out of the whole school!! They were so cute! So this year were goin w/ the pigs and wolf, and tht’s excatly what i had in mind was attaching each house to each pig and dress them as the pig and then having hte wolf!! I cant wait!!
