Happy Halloween!!

Costume Fun!!

My mom made our costumes each Halloween and when Emily was born I wanted to do the same. I find it so exciting to create a costume from things you have around or find in the store.

Emily the Tree Frog
This year Emily decided she wanted to be a frog so here is my cute little tree frog!

Her costume was super easy, we got a green sweat suit with a hood sewed on felt hands and feet and glued a Styrofoam ball cut in half and painted to look like eyes to the hood. I put green women's socks over her shoes to hide her bright pink sneakers!

Juliette the Octopus

For Juliette's first Halloween I wanted a fun costume and this one was perfect!!
Her costume was really easy and cheep too, only 5 dollars!! I found a purple shirt and 4 pairs of purple women's socks at the dollar tree. My mom and I stuffed 6 of the socks with stuffing and then sewed them to the bottom front of the shirt. The other 2 socks we partially stuffed for Juliette to wear. I glued felt suckers onto each of the legs.

Happy Halloween!!

Those are way too adorable! I really love the tree frog (but I think frogs are just too cute, so I'm prejudiced).

The costumes came out so cute! I know they didn't see any else just like it. I made my daughter's costume this year and I can't wait until next year. So fun!
