How to Make an Carrot Costume
Save money! Make a costume out of footies and you get to use the footies all year long. Do-it-yourself costumes are always better than one from the mall.
A group of fruits (like our blue grapes costume idea) or vegetables is a great group costume.
How to make an Adult Carrot Costume from an orange pair of footie pjs:
Start with one pair of Adult Footed Pajamas
- Make a leaf hat from green felt - or green posterboard or gift wrap (Felt is available in a 6 foot wide version for about $5 a yard from fabric stores)
- The hat in the photo was made by just taking a large piece of felt, folding it in a cone shape around the victim's head, and stapling it at the back.
- Cut the leaves and staple them to the top of the hat.
- Make some appropriate accoutrements from felt (for aphids) or twine (for roots) or posterboard (for seeds), etc. then pin them to your footies.
