I wasn't blessed with a whole lot of things - but one thing I was blessed with is CREATIVITY! ha.
When I have free time, I love to 'create' things. For my son's first birthday...that I did. I 'created' a DJ Lance - Yo Gabba Gabba costume. I was so proud of that silly thing! It cost me a whopping $10 to make. And making my husband wear it at his party was freaking priceless! ha. He's a good dad...and a good sport.
Granted, it didn't look EXACTLY like DJ Lance...but it was a great start! ha.
I can't believe how fast time is flying this year! I guess it's like that every year. NOW is the time to start thinking about Halloween!
You've got to check out these GREAT '5 Do It Yourself Halloween Costumes' I found on Parenting.com:
Weather Gal Costume
All you need is: a cardboard box, large helium balloon, dowels, fabric glue, burlap, batting, rope, jute twine, an extra-large needle, foam weather stripping, tape, and, if you want, a toy barometer, a lab coat, a clipboard, and binoculars
Got a budding scientist at home? She'll feel sky-high trick-or-treating as a meteorologist, complete with her own weather balloon!
Here Comes the Sun Costume
All you need is: an over-size yellow sweatshirt, orange and yellow felt, elastic, rickrack, pipe cleaners, fabric glue, a large safety pin
She's the sunshine of your life, so show the world! A basic sweatshirt is the start of this cheery costume. The smiling face of the sun is made from felt. A plain long-sleeve tee and yellow kneesocks or tights finish it off!
Raining Cats and Dogs Costume
All you need is: a child-size clear umbrella, black sticky felt (like Preto), black poster board, fabric pencil, gray thread, a needle
Drips are for kids! This clever idea is sure to be a hit in your neighborhood. Pair the decorated umbrella with the raincoat and rain boots your child already owns and she'll be set to have a blast in any weather.
I TOTALLY love this!! What a fun and EASY idea!!
Corn on the Cob Costume
This cute costume starts with an oversize sweatshirt -- no sewing needed.
Ok.. now your turn! What costume did you make that you are oh so proud of? SHARE SHARE! )
