Homemade costume ideas for kids include meatballs and spaghetti, pig in a blanket and an '80's rocker. Costume ideas for adults include a gray lady ghost, a beekeeper and a fortune teller.
Making a meatballs and spaghetti costume involves cutting a hole in the center of a red-and-white checkered tablecloth and decorating yarn and Styrofoam balls to look like noodles and meatballs. The mock food is glued into a bowl, and the bowl is then glued onto the tablecloth, which is worn over clothes like a poncho. A pot with a few pieces of yarn glued to it is used to mimic clinging noodles, which works as a hat to complete this costume.
