I love the idea of making my kids’ Halloween costumes. I would gladly make anything they wanted to be…. if I had the time, money, and skill. Time and money are something that I don’t really have to spend a ton of on Halloween costumes. Skill, well, I’d like to continue thinking I have that. (Though realistically not so much:P ) What I wanted this Halloween was something easy, cute, and pretty cheap to make for the girls. I think I found a pretty good one with Mrs. Potato Head. Here is how easy it is to make.
First up, I had to get some brown onesies. This is something you definitely could just have on hand.
My girls didn’t happen to have any, so I ordered some.
Two day shipping for the win. I got the 6-12 month size and they fit the girls pretty well now at almost 9 months. I also ordered some felt. You can get felt at a craft store of course. I have some from the dollar store, but I liked the stiffness of these felt stickers.
I think it gives the costume more of a, well, costume feel to it. Mrs. Potato Head has the plastic pieces that stick out and away from the body of the potato, and I wanted the pieces to do the same here. The great thing about this costume is you can use any brown onesie and whatever material you happen to have around for the pieces.
I hope this can help out another mom looking for a quick costume as Halloween approaches. I can’t wait to see the girls in them. They are going to be so cute!!
