Halloween: Strawberry Costume


  • red felt fabric
  • scissors
  • needle and thread
  • hot glue gun(optional)
  • yellow, brown and/or black paint
  • green felt
  • barrette


Using red felt, measure the length and width of the child, cut out a strawberry (2 layers). Sew the shoulders together leaving a hole large enough for the child's head and sew or hot glue some straps to the sides. If your child is bigger than a toddler you can always just sew or glue straps on the shoulders.

Use paint to dab some berry seeds all over the strawberry, I used a swirled mixture of brown and yellow to give it depth. Cut out some leaves of green felt (like cutting out a daisy). This can be attached to their head with a barrette.

You can turn this inside out next year and be a red pepper.
