Another year, another Halloween, another bout of “What am I going to wear?”–induced costume stress. Here’s a brilliant solution: Dress up as your favorite food.

With a little effort and a whole lot of hot glue, these costumes — from a doughnut to sushi to a box of wine — can all be created at home. Ready, set, craft!

CROQUEMBOUCHE

For this French pastry tower costume (above), you’ll need coffee filters, tissue paper, a hoop skirt and these instructions.

CUPCAKE

This sweet disguise might require you to wear a tub, but at least you get to be the flavor of your choice (dibs on Nutella cupcake!). Get the instructions here.

SUSHI

Blogger Erica Chung created her Nigiri sushi costume with a pillow, belt and even a wasabi-and-ginger hair piece, with the sole purpose of it being “suitable [for work], cheap and easy.” Get the instructions here.

BIRTHDAY CAKE

This festive get-up is essentially just a birthday cake-shaped piñata with you as the candle. Get the instructions here.

A BAG OF JELLY BEANS

This candy-rific costume takes only minutes to put together, just be careful you don’t get popped. Get the instructions here.

POPCORN BOX

This easy popcorn outfit costs less than $30 to make, and you get an excuse to eat popcorn all night. Count us in. Get the instructions here.

DOUGHNUT

You’ll be shocked at how simple this homemade doughnut ensemble is. There’s also a doughnut-hole treat bucket you can make to carry around all of your, er, dough. Get the instructions here.

SRIRACHA

Be the hottest condiment at your costume party by going as a Sriracha bottle. Red shirt, rep lipstick, green hat. Done. Get the instructions here.

BUNCH OF GRAPES

Balloons to the Halloween rescue once again, this time as a cute bunch of grapes. Get the instructions here.

FRENCH MACARON

This adorable macaron outfit is a bit more complex, but nothing too crazy — it’s essentially like wearing two homemade seat cushions. The sparkly beret is optional. Get the instructions here.

COTTON CANDY

With some pillow stuffing and a can of spray paint, you can magically transform into a pile of spun sugar. Get the instructions here.

PINEAPPLE

Blogger Kelly Lanza of Studio DIY’s pineapple outfit is “the perfect last minute costume that is easy to make, and brings a whole lot of impact,” she says. Any yellow clothes will work. Get the headpiece instructions here.

STRAWBERRY

Got a Halloween partner-in-crime? One of you can dress up as the pineapple above, and the other can rock this strawberry look. You go, crazy fruit bowl! Get the instructions here.

A BOX OF WINE

The best part of this costume? You’re a fully functional wine dispenser. The second best part? It costs less than $20 and can be made in a day. Get the instructions here.
