Last-Minute Spaghetti and Meatballs Costume – Didn’t Cost a Thing!


  • Red tube dress, or buy red fabric and sew a dress using another dress as a template
  • brown fabric
  • tissues
  • needle & thread
  • cream colored yarn

Using a soda can as a stencil, cut 2 circles of brown fabric  for every 1 meatball, and sew around the border leaving a small opening for stuffing

Crumble tissues/t-paper and stuff contents into the meatball’s peep hole, then sew the opening closed while sewing the fake meatball to the dress.

Cut different sized pieces of yarn and group them together. Tie a smaller piece of yarn around a group of yarn pieces, and sew that knot to the dress. Be creative with how you want your pasta to flow!
