Homemade Meatballs and Spaghetti Costume



This Meatballs and Spaghetti for both male and female costume idea came to me like magic. 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.

Equipment  needed:

  • 1.25 yards of 45-inch-wide red-checkered fabric
  • skein off-white yarn
  • hot-glue gun
  • large, sturdy paper plate
  • 8 small Styrofoam balls
  • brown acrylic paint
  • red acrylic paint
  • small pot (fake)

Cutting The Fabric:

Cut a hole for the head in the center of a red-checkered tablecloth (or 1.25 yards of 45-inch-wide red-checkered fabric so that it can be worn like a poncho.

Making The Spaghetti:

Cut 1/2 skein off-white yarn into spaghetti-length pieces. With a hot-glue gun, glue them in swirls and bunches to a large, sturdy paper plate.

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.

Gluing Everything Together:

  1. Glue the plate to the front of the tablecloth.
  2. Glue remaining meatballs to tablecloth where you like.
  3. Glue some strands of yarn to pot “hat”.  Tie under chin if needed to keep pot on head.
