DIY Pizza Costume
Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking of creative Halloween costume ideas. If you’re a pizza lover, why not dress up as your favorite food?! In this article, we’ll show you how to make a DIY pizza costume.
- Large cardboard box
- Red, yellow, white, and black paint
- Scissors or utility knife
- Glue gun
- White foam balls
- Green and brown construction paper
- Elastic band
- Start by cutting the top flaps off the cardboard box and removing any tape or debris.
- Using a ruler or measuring tape, measure and mark where you want the armholes on the sides of the box. Then, use a utility knife or scissors to cut out the armholes.
- Now it’s time to paint the box to look like a pizza. First, paint the entire box with red paint to resemble the tomato sauce. Let it dry completely before moving onto the next step.
- Next, use a paintbrush to add yellow circles on the box to resemble cheese.
- Then, use white paint to add mushroom shapes and black paint to add olive shapes to the pizza.
- Using a hot glue gun, glue white foam balls onto the pizza to resemble pepperoni slices.
- To finish off the pizza look, cut out small circles from green and brown construction paper to make bell pepper and sausage shapes. Glue these onto the pizza.
- Finally, create two holes at the bottom of the box and thread an elastic band through them so that you can wear the pizza costume around your waist.

If you are on the lookout for a fun and unique costume for this Halloween season then why not consider creating a “Do It Yourself (DIY) Pizza Costume”! This crafty and delicious costume is guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd and spark up a smile or two. All you need are affordable items you can purchase at the supermarket or your local craft store.
To begin, you will need either a white hoodie or a one-piece jumpsuit, red and yellow felt, a brown paper bag, a hot glue gun, scissors and plenty of stuffing materials such as polyester fibrefill. To create the pizza slices use the felt to cut out various shapes, such as triangles and circles, in both the red and yellow colours. These will serve as the toppings for the pizza. Next, take the brown paper bag and cut it into the shape of a pizza crust, this should be slightly smaller than the hoodie or jumpsuit. Secure the felt pieces onto the paper bag with the help of the hot glue gun. Now assemble all of your components to the hoodie or jumpsuit. Use your stuffing materials to fill in any gaps or spaces between the felt pieces and paper bag.
Once all the elements of your pizza costume are secured, you can now embellish it. Add some sequins, tiny stars, glitter glue or any other decorative pieces that you might have in your stash. Have fun! Once you have completed your costume it is ready to be worn, so put on that smile and strut your stuff. Take pictures, be creative and enjoy the compliments you will receive.
