We’ve got a delicious, juicy baby costume for you today: a freshly picked strawberry! Here’s how to put one together…
PS Lots more Halloween costume ideas right here!
For this costume we started with a red onesie and added small white felt dimples to it with fabri-tac or hot glue. The socks are actually these tights that we chopped to make into knee high socks. The leaf collar and leaf hat DIYs are below!
Here’s how we made the strawberry leaf hat…
1. Cut leaves out of green felt with a 1 inch bottom that you can pinch. Using the round bottom of a paper cup as a base, pinch the bottom of the leaves and glue start gluing them around the paper cup. Pinching the stiff felt will allow them to stand up a little bit. We like using fabri-tac or hot glue.
Here are instructions on making the strawberry collar…
1. Cut a long piece of thick green bias tape and a lot more of the green petals.
2. Start gluing them to the bias tape, overlapping slightly. The bias tape is great because you don’t need to sew or finish those ends!
Delicious looking strawberry baby!
