The belly is getting bigger, y’all! I’m 20 weeks pregnant, and you better believe this bump is getting dressed up for Halloween! This easy DIY deviled egg costume could be a couples costume or a mom and baby costume too. I did not have very cooperative subjects on photo shoot night. Andy was the photographer and Max isn’t a huge fan of standing still these days. Or wearing things on his head. This might be my favorite pregnant costume idea yet! Although, I did love our Bob Ross, Happy Tree, and squirrel too.)

Here’s what you need to make a deviled egg costume

- Devil horns and tail
- Yellow t-shirt
How to make a deviled egg costume
This is seriously one of the easiest costumes to make in the history of ever.
Step 1- Trace and cut a circle
First, lay the piece of poster board on the floor. Place a dinner plate in the center of the white poster board and trace around it with a pencil. Then, use scissors to cut out the circle in the middle of the board.
Step 2- Make the egg shape
Turn the poster board over and use a pencil to make a wavy, egg like circle around the circle. Next, use scissors to cut around the wavy line.
Step 3- Make the egg wearable
Next, punch 2 holes in the top of the egg and string and tie fishing line through both holes. Hold the egg up to your belly and tie the fishing line in triple knots so that the yolk fits in the egg correctly (and comfortably)! Triple knots are necessary if you are using fishing line, otherwise the knots will fall out.
Place your horns on your head and attach your tail to your jeans, and voila, deviled egg!
