Hi there! It’s Crystal here, from Stitched by Crystal! Halloween is right around the corner, have your kids picked their costumes yet? If you are looking for a really easy and adorable last minute idea, I’ve got you covered! Today I have a quick and easy, NO SEW, cheeseburger costume tutorial to share with you!
This cheeseburger costume comes together in about an hour with only your GLUE GUN! And the materials are all budget friendly too. So you can throw this cute cheeseburger costume and the pickle headpiece together the night before Halloween, without breaking the bank!
The sandwich board style burger pieces get layered over some brown clothing (I made a quick fleece shift dress for my daughter) but you could just grab a brown t-shirt at the store. It would also make a great costume for cooler climates; throw it on over a cozy sweatshirt so your little burger stays warm while trick or treating!
This cheeseburger costume would make for some really fun family costumes too. How cute would this be with little brother dressed as French fries? Or mom and dad as ketchup and mustard?!
Want to make a quick and easy, no sew, cheeseburger costume?!
Great! Let me show you how…
SUPPLIES for a NO SEW Cheeseburger Costume:
- Two plastic platters from the dollar store. These platters are about 15” in diameter, the perfect size for my 6 year old, but they would be cute on any age!
- Cheeseburger colored felt. I used ½ yard of light brown, ¼ yard of red, green, and yellow, and a small sheet of white and dark green (for the pickle headpiece).
- Hot glue gun
- 20 inches of black elastic (1/2” or 1” wide)
- An alligator hair clip for the pickle
Cut your brown felt into two circles that are1”-2” wider than your platters.
Place the felt under your platter and wrap the felt around the front, gluing it in place with the hot glue gun. Start by gluing at the top, bottom and sides, then fill in the spaces between those points for a nice even fit.
Cut out small sesame seeds and glue them to the front of one of your buns.
From your green felt, cut 3 curvy pieces for the lettuce.
Add a few small dots of glue and pinch the fabric together to give it a little texture.
Glue the lettuce to the backside of the bun with the sesame seeds spacing them evenly around the edge.
Next, cut curved shapes from your red felt for the tomatoes.
Glue them to the backside of the bun in between the lettuce pieces.
Then, cut four right triangle pieces from the yellow felt for the cheese.
Glue the cheese triangles to the back of the bun so they form a square of cheese.
Cut your elastic into two 10” pieces, glue the elastic to the top of the hamburger about 5”-6” apart.
Glue the other ends of the elastic to the backside of your other bun.
Your burger is done!
To make the pickle headpiece, cut a 6” circle of dark green felt. Glue a light green circle on top that is about 1/2” smaller all the way around. Cut 5 white seeds and glue them to the center. Glue the alligator hair clip to the middle of the back of the pickle.
All done! Throw the cheeseburger on over your brown clothes and clip the pickle in your hair! Happy Halloween!
Thanks for reading and happy sewing!
