Corn on the Cob Costume

These cute costumes start with an oversize sweatshirt—no sewing needed!

For this costume, you'll need:

  • hot glue or fabric glue
  • scissors
  • tape measure

1. Cut sleeves off a green sweatshirt. Turn in armholes and glue raw edges.

2. Give 3 paper egg-carton bottoms a coat of yellow paint. When dry, glue to front of sweatshirt for kernels, as shown.

3. Cut 1 yard of green felt in half. Pull on felt to create irregular edges. Fold and glue along each side of egg cartons, as shown. Glue green pipe cleaners to the back of felt at the top to help the "husk" tips stand up.

4. Hat: Measure child's head and cut a sleeve to fit, leaving an extra inch at the top. Cut a bunch of raffia and bundle together. Wrap a strand around base of bundle to keep it together; glue to hat for corn silk.
