This costume was almost all made from materials found at Goodwill. The meatballs are styrofoam balls painted, and the spaghetti is yarn! I hot glued a couple meatballs and spaghetti to Nolan, my 5-month-old son and sat him in a large roasting pan filled with yarn. He was the hit of the neighborhood! He even fell asleep while I walked him around town, and people thought he looked so peaceful they asked if he was real! We joke the spaghetti noodles got too done and they became limp! Approximation of cost: a whopping $5! Our inspiration is simply our love as a family of pasta.
