To make this simple costume, cut a platter from a large circle of cardboard with a hole in the middle for child's legs to fit through. Tie on some off-white yarn strings like suspenders. Then hot glue random off white yarn all over the plate. Next, hot glue some yarn pom-poms for meatballs. Once the child is in the costume, drape extra yarn around the shoulders.Carry a small can of Parmesan cheese.
My daughter won a $5 prize in a costume contest for this one. Since it only cost $2 to make, we made money!

Adorable and so creative! Thanks for the wonderful idea that does not include gory stuff!
I'm sure you meant to say cut holes for the arms, not the legs to go into...
but I absolutley love this costume
what a wonderfully clever idea.
thank you for sharing
I think "legs" is correct. Suspenders are holding the flat, oval doughnut-shape disk aloft.
How beautiful. Look at that little face with the huge smile. Someone made a little girl outrageously happy. Cute, cute, cute!
Beautiful-very clever idea! I love it!
Congratulations! This really is a prize winner. Beautiful little girl too.
