Can you guys believe that Halloween is almost here?
It really creeped up on me this year (no pun intended haha).
So, until I'm able to share this year's costume with you, I'll take a moment to look back at past Halloween DIY's.
First up is Lily who two years ago requested to be the little mermaid. I had barely begun sewing again and this pattern took MONTHS to put together!
I can't remember now which big box company I purchased it from but I changed the tail by adding strings that attached to her wrists. This was she didn't trip the whole time& it kept with the look of the mermaid fin. I thought the seaweed boa and seashell details made it super fun too. As you can tell by the proud look on her face, she loved it.
Making a return is the Max costume I made for Lily for her second Halloween some 4 years ago. This year Archer will be wearing it & is sporting a brand new crown. The felt covered Burger King one didn't hold up. lol
For full details on how this costume was made go to That's What She Crafted.
Lastly, ignore how blurry this photo is, please. Taking night time photos is so BLAH no matter how cute your kid is. This is little Archer last year when I threw together a quick costume for him to tag along in the stroller. I covered his bottle in a paper bag, painted a beard on him, put him in a plaid coat I created for him earlier that fall, and added this little cardboard sign.
This year Lily has requested to be the Big Bad Wolf and I've got my hands full finding just the right way to pull it off. Wish me lots of luck!
