I really do not know WHAT has come over me, but when I was talking with my team from work about making Halloween costumes from some of our clients’ products, I was like, “You know, I think I could do a few of those.”
As you know if you’ve read this blog for awhile, I have not a crafty bone in my body. Emily’s the more crafty cousin and has made Kate’s costumes in the past. Anna, the third SuperCousin, practically LIVES at Hobby Lobby, but I am allergic to it. As a matter of fact, I recently went to Hobby Lobby to look for magnets for Sophie’s hair bow board (which I guess I also crafted, but not really) and I pretty much had a panic attack. I walked out with a sweaty brow, a racing heartbeat, and empty hands. Have you been in there? THAT PLACE is TERRIFYING! Seriously!! I hope I never have to go in there again.
But anyhoo, after a trip to the DOLLAR TREE (much more my speed), I realized I could easily accessorize some Girls Crochet Headands products and make Sophie a couple of costume options for Halloween.
And I FREAKING DID IT! Amazeballs, right??
Here is Sophie as a clown:
And here she is as an Angry Bird (which is the one she chose to actually wear for trick-or-treat):
Girls Crochet Headbands liked my efforts so much they dedicated two blog posts to the tutorials. I hope you’ll check them out; the clown one is here and the Angry Bird is here, or you can find them both on our Happy Halloween Pinterest board.
And to give credit where credit is due, Cortney made the Angry Birds mask; it was left over from her son’s birthday party, but I *do* think I could’ve done it myself.
Anycrap, after I finished these I proudly texted photos of them to Emily and Cortney, and wouldn’t you know, they both had the SAME reaction!
O she of little faith!
Clearly, I can’t get no respect! And also, the real me *may* have been abducted by aliens and replaced with this costume-crafting “fun mom”! But really, I surprised myself with these. They were just TOO easy. If I can do it, anyone can, fer the realz. So, head on over to the links above and check out the tutorials!
Now I just have to get Joshua’s costume figured out. He is definitely NOT wearing a tutu! Are your kids obsessed with Halloween yet? What are they planning to be for trick-or-treat?
