Easy No-Sew Costumes: Salmon Sushi

Alright. You're ready to make your own salmon sushi costume. Here is what you'll need:
- a faux grass mat
- a pink-ish coloured towel
- a white towel
- white ribbon
- green felt
- hot-glue gun
STEP ONE: MAKING THE RICE
Cut your towel to the desired size of your sushi costume. Use the hot glue to stick edges together to create a little "pillow". Leave an opening and stuff this pillow with the leftover fabric. Use the glue gun to seal it shut.
STEP TWO: MAKING THE SALMON
Using the size of your rice pillow as your guide, fold your pink-ish coloured towel in half and cut an oval "fish" shape. Take your hot-glue gun and glue around the edges of your fish (leave an opening). Stuff the salmon with leftover fabric. Use the glue gun to seal it shut.
STEP THREE: PUTTING IT TOGETHER
Cut a thin strip out of your green felt, and use this as a piece of "seaweed" to wrap around your salmon and rice. Hot glue it in place. To adhere this costume to your child, you can choose to put it on their back, or on their front. Both options are adorable. For a permanent costume, you can hot-glue this to a long sleeve shirt or sweater (not while the child is wearing it, of course). Or you can use duct tape or safety-pins.
Now your little piece of salmon sushi is ready (and warm enough) to go trick-or-treating, all for under $25!
