How to Make a Fruit Costume

Save

Deciding on a costume for a party or Halloween is never easy. Buying or renting costumes can also be an expensive investment, especially if you go to a lot of themed parties. An easy and affordable way to stand out at any party, however, is to dress up as your favorite fruit. There are so many different types of fruits you can dress up as, such as apples, bananas, strawberries and grapes, and if there are couple of you going together, you could even go as a fruit bowl.

Things You'll Need

  • Colored tights
  • Colored sweatshirts
  • Paint
  • Colored paper
  • Newspaper
  • Balloons
  • Markers
  • Tape

Strawberry

  • Dress in all red clothing, or a red sweatshirt and black leggings.

  • Paint black spots onto your clothes to represent seeds.

  • Fill your red sweatshirt or top with scrunched-up newspaper to give the outfit a more plump, realistic look. Attach the sweatshirt to your leggings.

  • Bunch together more newspaper into a long stem. Paint it brown. Pin the stem to your head.

Apple

  • Fill the top with scrunched-up newspaper or foam to make the costume round.

  • Belt or pin the sweatshirt to your leggings to keep the newspaper in.

Bunch of Grapes

  • Blow up green or purple balloons according to what color grapes you are. Make sure you have enough balloons to cover the front and back of your torso.
