How to Make an Adult Homemade Purple Grapes Costume

This is a NO SEWING REQUIRED costume!

How to make a Homemade Adult Grapes Costume using footed pjs:

Start with one pair of Adult Footed Pajamas

  • Make 3 Grape Vines from about 8 Purple (or Green) Balloons.
  • You can find large single-color ballons at shops that specialize in greeting cards or party supplies. 
  • When you tie them shut, tie them around a string or ribbon - leave plenty of room on the end so you can tie them around you.
  • Tie the first two around your body like bandaleros (start at waist, go up around opposite shoulder - repeat on other side).
  • Tie the third around your waist.
  • Make 3 "Grape Leaves" from Green Felt (available 6 foot wide for about $5 a yard from fabric stores) or Green Posterboard or Craft Foam. Staple on a stem. 
  • Cut a template first... cutting leaves isn't as easy as it looks!
