DIY Costumes

Tis the Season

I actually love this time of the year (no, Im not Pagan) because Halloween is the only time when I can use those scrap fabrics that have collected all year long. I am forced to be super creative. Plus making costumes is just awesome fun!

Either you're just as excited to make your costume as I am OR you're dreading hot glue burnt fingers, carpets with faux fur remnants, or just don't have the time. Its all good mama! I came up with some SUPER EASY DIY COSTUMES you can make that your toddler will still look cute in.
