too early to think halloween?
We’ve been having a rash of fall-like weather here this week, which has gotten me thinking about pumpkin lattes and… Halloween. Too soon?
Last year, Holdy had some super cute costumes, if I do say so myself.
A Pinspiration, I actually “made” the money bag costume myself (believe it or not).
Baby Money Bag Costume
So here’s what I did:
I used a cream colored sleep sack that Holdy already had (I liked the fleece for the colder weather). I created a dollar sign template in Microsoft Word – which you can download here in PDF format – and double-sided taped it to the sleep sack (oh yeah, I’m that lazy).
For the money, I put one of Holdy’s baby headbands around her head and basically stuffed the fake bills in it, folding them around the headband (and taping them as necessary). I’m sure there’s a better way to do this, but this jerry-rigged way worked for us.
For my robber getup, I just wore black sweats and cut some (horrible) eye holes in some black fabric that I tied around my head.
And that’s it! Check out this adorable Spent Money at the end of the day:
Baby Mad Hatter Costume
I also took Holdy to my Book Club Halloween “Party.” We all decided to dress up like literary characters.
So we went as Alice and the Mad Hatter. I actually had an old Alice in Wonderland costume for myself that I dug out.
For Holdy’s Mad Hatter, I dressed her in some crazy mismatched clothes and had my friends at HolyCraft make her an adorable Mad Hatter baby top hat.
Quick and easy, which is how I like to do things. So… how am I going to top these this year? Any ideas?
