Pack Of Cards CostumeIn South Africa, we do not really celebrate Halloween, but that does not mean that we do not enjoy dress-up parties! A few weeks ago I was invited to a birthday, and the theme was a "P-Party."
Halloween Costume: CowgirlMy grandaughter wanted to be a cowgirl for her first Halloween
Halloween Costume: Flower PetalMy great neice Brooke turned 1 a few days before Halloween. She loved dressing up in her petal costume. She is so cute!
Halloween: Mad Hatter CostumeThis Mad Hatter costume was perfect for her personality!
Halloween Costume: Bun in the OvenMy daughter was pregnant at Halloween time so they made a "Bun in the Oven" costume. Her husband was outfitted with a white apron and chef's hat and carried a mixing bowl and wooden spoon.
Halloween Costume: Deviled EggThe instructions are quite simple. First go to the fabric store and pick up a couple of yards of white felt and 1/2 a yard of bright yellow felt. You also need store bought materials for being a devil, such as the the red horns, the tail and the pitchfork.
Scenery: Family Country WalkGrandkids and niece, and of course Lou our dog, on a walk on my Dad's farm one Saturday morning.
Halloween Costume: Headless HorsemanThis costume has always won first place any time I have used it. We usually have someone lead the child around for safety.
Halloween Costume: Country MouseMy grandson had to dress as a country mouse for school. They were reading the book about a country mouse and a city mouse in his Kindergarten class. Beside him is a pumpkin he decorated with paint.
Warm Halloween CostumesAs a child, I lived in rural Illinois. October there is cold. Sometimes it snows! The flimsy store-bought costumes leave everyone shivering. A warm costume is worth the effort.
Halloween Costume: ClownI used a plastic trash bag and painted it with red and white. I doubled the trash bag and glued on. I got big tennis shoes and painted them red, got a yellow shirt. For the suspenders, I used plastic white tall kitchen bags and velcroed them to the pants.
Halloween Costume: Minnie MouseDraw circles on t-shirt using round object of your choice. Paint in circles with white craft paint. Use eyebrow pencil to draw on nose and whiskers.
Halloween: Little Indian MaidenI took fleece material, cut it and made it into a simple jumper. I made it big so she could dress warm that night. Cut fringe and sew trim on bottom of skirt. Add a head band with a feather and feather trim in front of jumper.
Halloween Costume: Cheerios and MilkThis was actually very easy to make. I got a couple of cardboard boxes (the right size for my kids). Then I found pictures on the internet and printed them out in several pieces and glued them onto the boxes.
Costume Idea: AstronautMy grandson came home one day after school and said he wanted to be dressed as a astronaut for "What You Want To Grow Up To Be Day." So we threw together a costume using what we had around the house.
Halloween: Horse Costume (Dog)I never enjoyed playing with dolls when I was little, but I get a real kick out of dressing my dogs for Halloween. This year I made a special costume for Petey because he is as big as a horse!
Clark Kent CostumeThis year my son DJ was invited to a Halloween party at the last minute and had to come up with something quick. We pulled this idea together with things we had around the house and it was a huge hit!
