Can you guys believe it’s almost Halloween?!  A good friend of mine has the cutest baby girl and asked if I could design a special one of-a-kind Halloween costume for her this year, and what’s cuter than a little pineapple?! Children’s costumes can be tricky because they need to be comfortable, durable and easy to move in. So I picked cotton onesie to transform into an adorable fruit costume!  I started with a basic white onesie and dyed it with a vibrant yellow fabric spray paint, and used black felt to create a modern, geometric pineapple pattern and the cutest topper attached to a cap. The outfit was really simple to make and cotton was the perfect material for the project because it’s soft and comfortable so kids can wear it all day (and hopefully everyday, it’s just too cute!) Even though it was intended for a little girl, it’s a great unisex costume and can be replicated with other fruit or plant looks. Check out the video below to learn more about making your own, or get to supplies and step-by-step after the break.

What you need:
Green stiff felt
Green felt – in multiple greens
Black felt
Cotton white onsie
Tulip ColorShot Instant Fabric Color 3oz. Yellow
Glue gun

What to do:
Step #1: Spray a white onesie and white baby hat with yellow fabric paint, following directions on the bottle, and let dry
Step #2: Cut out triangle shapes on the black felt and attach with hot glue to onesie and hat
Step #3: Using the stiff green felt cut out pineapple’s top shape
Step #4: With the different shades of soft green felt make leaves and attach to stiff green felt with hot glue
Step #5: Attach the leaves to the back of the hat with hot glue and let dry
Step #6: Outfit your little one to be the cutest pineapple in town!
