Ohhh… I am so excited that my favorite time of the year is fast approaching! I absolutely love fall…I love the cool, crisp air; love how the trees change colors; love the scent of pumpkin pie etc. I also love that one of my favorite holidays, Halloween, is almost here. So that got me thinking… what are my kids going to be for Halloween this year?! Although my 2 boys are pretty flexible and up for any sort of manly/scary/gory/disgusting costume, my little Piper is determined to be the oh-so-original glittery/sparkly/pink princess for the 3rd year in a row. Although I would like to make creative and budget-friendly costumes for each of them, I am often at a loss as to where to start. So this is where you come in! If you have successfully made a Halloween costume in the past, please share your ideas, tips and tricks with all of us. If you are a fan of purchasing costumes, where is your favorite place to shop?
Wondering who the cute cowboy is in the picture above?! That’s my nephew, Hudson, dressed as his all-time favorite object… a John Deere tractor! 😀 My very creative big sis, Bryn, created this costume from scratch. All she did was paint 2 cardboard boxes a John Deere green color and then attach them with glue. She used black plastic plates with yellow construction paper for the wheels, black poster-board for the smoke stack (attached to the bottom of the smoke stack was a bag so that Hudson could drop his candy down the smoke stack), and even battery operated lights for the back and front of the tractor! How cute and unique is that?!
On a side note, I’m also always looking for creative Halloween treats and snacks too! If you have favorite Halloween recipes, please share them in the comments!
