What do you need to make this DIY Pizza Costume?

You will need two large pieces of cardboard. If you don’t have that you can buy poster board and cut it to size, no one will tell as it will be covered anyway! You’ll need felt for the pizza toppings for whatever you want to add on top of your pizza! We added cheese, pepperoni, olives, green bell pepper and mushrooms. For the base of the pizza (red sauce), we got some red fleece to give it a cushier feel but you can definitely use felt! We also used tan fleece for the crust and added some padding with polyfill for dimension. If you don’t have that, no problem, you can just glue a strip of the tan fleece or felt across!

Last you will need some strong 3″ elastic and lots of hot glue. Are you ready to make your handmade pizza costume? Get all the details below!
