This could technically be my nickname. I love potatoes. Especially mashed potatoes - yum. But, this is not what this post is about. I found this great tutorial on how to make a Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head costume (in my case, it's "Miss" Potato Head thank you very much). I was invited to a Halloween party and this seemed so easy (and cute!) that I decided to try it. And it only took me a few hours to do! (please excuse the bad pictures - I did this at night).
I did some quick measurements and figured that I would need about 2 yards of felt. I also bought some of the square pieces in white, pink, red, and black to make the face. ***Update: I bought 2 yards of felt, but didn't use that amount. I probably used about 1.25 yards & still have quite a bit leftover - probably enough to make a kids' version of this.***
This is a great project if you need a last-minute costume. It's so easy and I got lots of compliments.
Have a great Halloween!
