Who doesn’t love a slice of pizza? I will take one any way you give it to me, hot, cold, deep dish or thin, there is something about the combination of sauce, bread and cheese that can bring anyone to their knees.
So why not turn your adorable little one into an adorable slice of your favorite pizza pie?
Felt is the perfect material for homemade costumes: it’s inexpensive, you can get small sheets for lots of color choices, and it doesn’t fray, so you don’t need to hem it.
Long sleeve shirt
Needle and thread or sewing machine
3 yards of mozzarella cheese colored felt (ivory), try to find a heavier weight felt
1 yard red felt (pepperoni)
1 yard green felt (onions)
1 yard black felt (olives)
1 yard brown felt (mushrooms)
- Measure your child from knee to knee over the shoulder. This will be length of the diamond shape for the pizza slice.
- Measure also from elbow to elbow across the shoulder. This will be the width of the diamond shape for the pizza.
- Cut a piece of felt into an elongated diamond shape with a hole in the middle to make the pizza shape. Use the measurements that you took! They used white, but you could also use yellow to mimic the cheese.
- Cut your toppings: red circles for pepperoni, green squares for green peppers, black O’s for olives and simple brown mushrooms. Hot glue or sew them on.
Enjoy your fresh little slice this Halloween!
