DIY Halloween Costume

Meatballs and Spaghetti

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