Looking for a quick and easy handmade costume? How about one that will bring back memories of your own childhood! I don’t know about you, but I spent hours begging my Mom for quarters to play this fun arcade game at the pizza place - and it wasn’t until recently I learned there was a code to break it. IF ONLY I HAD KNOWN THAT IN MY YOUTH! I would’ve been the coolest kid in school. Ha!  The Pac-Man and ghosts costume are super easy to make, and will evoke all sorts of smiles. Made out of felt, these are perfect for a last minute handmade halloween costume for the whole matching family.

My kids may not have known who Pac-Man was when I first made these, but they certainly had a blast running around and chasing each other once the costumes were on!

  1. Cut out 2 large felt circles – make sure the circle’s diameter is more than double your body width.
  2. Cut out the triangle mouth.
  3. Cut (2) black felt circles for the eyes, and sew or hot glue onto both circles in the same exact location.
  4. Sew or hot glue the (2) circles wrong sides together, leaving an opening for the head, arms, and legs to come through. (Sew where the dotted lines are).

And you are finished!

For a firmer Pac-Man, double up on the felt for each side to give it more stability.
