Actually Halloween was the next day and I was at home in my room when I just remembered that tomorrow was Halloween, so I was thinking “I don’t have any money, what am I going to do? “Then it hit me, not literally but you know what I mean. I could make a meatballs and spaghetti costume so I did and let me tell you it wasn’t easy but I managed to make it work. In the end it was worth it.

Did Somebody Order Meat Balls?
Paint 8 small Styrofoam balls with brown acrylic paint to resemble meatballs. Let dry, then glue 4 or 5 balls to top of spaghetti. Mix brown and red acrylic paint to make a tomato-sauce color; drip that over meatballs and spaghetti. Smear a little on the side of a small pot.

- Glue the plate to the front of the tablecloth.
- Glue remaining meatballs to tablecloth where you like.
