DIY Grape CostumeThis DIY Grape Costume is super cute. I put it on a white shirt so that the grapes would really pop from a distance. Trust me, people were stopping me left and right the whole day that I was wearing this telling me how much they liked it.

Even the hat would make a cute headband to wear on its own. (As long as you’re ok with everyone being jealous of how cute you look, sorry)


1 white t-shirt
1 fabric covered headband
2 sheets of purple felt
1 sheet of dark green felt
5-6 large purple felt balls
Purple thread
Green thread
A sewing needle
1 safety pin
Fabric scissors

To make the hat: 

  1. Cut out 6 1.5” leaves out of the dark green felt.
  2. Pinch together one of the ends of three of the leaves together and sew them onto the lower left end of the headband. I spaced mine about 2” from the the lower left end of my headband.
  3. Using the felt balls for spacing, repeat the same step about 3-4 felt balls away. Depending on how many you want on your headband.
  4. Using the layer of fabric on top of the headband, attach the leaves to the band by sewing the leavings into the fabric of the band.
  5. Sew or glue the felt balls in between the two sets of leaves. If anything, have the felt balls overlap on top of the leaves. Making it look a little overcrowded will give your hat a more grape-like look.
    Easy version: Use a hot glue gun and glue the leaves to the band. 

To make the shirt: 

  1. Cut about 15 purple circle felt shapes out of the purple felt in various sizes. (I did mine in some 1.5” – 2.5” diameter)
  2. Use the safety pin to secure the placement of grapes to your shirt, arrange them with the various grapes sizes in a triangle shape. Let them slightly overlap in order to look more grape-ish.

  3. Using the purple thread, stitch the grapes to the shirt and remove the pins as your sew them on. (I used white thread on the outer pieces in order to give it a reflective look, but just do purple if you only have one color)

    Easy version: Using the hot glue gun, you can glue the grapes to the shirt. But go easy on the glue!

    Hey! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to
    ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours take a
    large amount of work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for
    new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
