DIY Mario Brothers Costumes

Today I am sharing how I made an easy DIY Mario costume for my two sons. I love these DIY Mario Brothers costumes because of the vibrant colors, simplicity, and cute factor! The costumes are really simple to pull together with little to no sewing skills needed.

DIY Mario Bros Costume: The Hats

The hats were made using a free pattern and instructions I found online. Unfortunately, the link to the pattern is no longer working so I’ve since removed it from this post 🙁.

In total, I spent about $8 on felt material for the hats and maybe 2 hours of time. I was able to easily sew the hats by hand, and I am very pleased with how they turned out. I did not adjust the size of the hat for my littlest boy so it is a little big for him but I think it’s still adorable.

Mario Brothers Costumes: The Overalls

DIY Mario Costume

I was able to make both pairs of overalls using only 1 yard of blue fleece. To make the overalls, I measured the boys and drew a pattern of overalls (front and back), minus the straps, onto the fabric. I then cut those patterns out and sewed them together right side to the right side.

Next, I cut the straps to the appropriate length, sewed two yellow buttons onto the straps, and sewed the straps to the overalls.

Lastly, I sewed strips of velcro on the underside of the straps, and on the overalls, where the straps meet to keep everything in place. I completed the costumes with a red and a green shirt from the boy's closet. I couldn't be happier with the results.

I am loving these cute costumes! I see you are from Florida and I hope you all braved the hurricane without any difficulties. Pinned!

Thanks, Sarah. Fortunately, the storm missed us in southern Florida.
