HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope you all had a fabulous time and didn’t suffer too hard from the post-halloween candy hangover. We had a blast trick or treating in our DIY costume with our friends this year and I was so surprised at how good the babes did! They went door to door saying trick or treat and always said their ‘thank you’s’ after each house. It was definitely a proud mama moment.
We DIY’ed costumes this year for two reasons… 1.) PURE LAZINESS on my part and 2.) FRUGALITY! Does anyone else think the cost of halloween costumes is getting over the top outrageous?? So this year I decided the DIY route was for us. I’m not necessarily a crafty person so it took me a while to come up with a DIY costume that didn’t involve sewing or hardcore crafting.
We had a few mummy decorations around the house and the babes loved them so that sparked my creativity for their costume. We already had these adorable off white pajamas (intended for the holidays) so I coupled those with some guaze bandages, toilet paper, and face paint and TADA – WE HAVE A MUMMY COSTUME! I got the PJ’s on sale for $12 so total cost of each costume was right around $16! That’s quite the deal considering so many costumes cost $50 and more.
