Easy as Pie Halloween Costume






This Halloween Costume is great last minute idea, it took me under an hour to make and I was able to find 
everything I needed right in my house and it's a great way to repurpose those old fleece blankets.

Go grab some cardboard, silver duck tape, fleece, pillow batting, a needle and thread and your glue gun.

First cut out two identical sized cardboard circles, I made ours 24 inches across*.
  note* the circle diameter will depend on the size of the child or person wearing it.  

Next I cut out a 28 inch circle in tan fleece for the pie crust, and a 26 inch circle in red fleece
 for the cherry filing.

then I used my pinking shears and cut 14 strips 26 inches long by 2 1/2 inches wide.
12 of them are going to be used as the woven pire crust and 2 for the straps.

Now get that glue gun hot and ready!

take one of the cardboard circles and start glueing the red fleece half way around the edge.
The stuff with some pillow batting and finish glue all the way around the edge.



Next take the strips of tan fleece weaving them to look like pie crust and glueing them down along the edge of the circle, then trim of any extra.

Now take your tan fleece circle and run a chain stitch about a 1/2 inch from the edge all the
 way around, then fit over that same cardboard circle and pull the thread to gather tightly 
around you pie.

Take the glue gun running a bead of glue along the inside to secure it in place.

Now it's time to take the duct tape and cover the other cardboard circle, on the front side and before you tape up the back side glue down your shoulder straps before covering them over with duct tape.

Finally glue the other side of the straps onto the backside of the tan pie crust.



The whipped cream cherry hat is optional, but a great topping to the costume.
I used a piece of white felt, scrap of red fleece, more batting, pipe cleaner and a hair clip.

Costume Cost: under $5

Happy Halloween!

  7. Thanks for this! My husband and I made this costume based on your instructions last year for our daughter's first birthday (her nickname is Pie Pie, we dressed as bakers.) It was perfect, and awesome, and a total hit. I just thought you should know that Pottery Barn Kids ripped you off in their Halloween catalog this year. I just opened it. It's nearly identical.

    1. Meg that sounds like an absolutely adorable birthday party! I've been seeing more and more of the big companies taking ideas they found on blogs and Pinterest without giving credit or compensation to the those of us who actually came up with it. We all love to share our creativity but some how it seems unfair for companies like Target and PBK to be making a profit from us.
