Making costumes has become a fun tradition for us the days leading up to Halloween. Our church Halloween party was last week, quite early to have costumes ready, but luckily we found lots of short cuts and got ours together mostly in one day.
|Felt for the teeth and eyes. Lots of hot glue here; no sewing. (Will have to take better pictures on Halloween.)|
|Such great games at the church party. Here it's the donut on the string; apparently Faye got to use her hands.|
|This one was ghost bowling.|
|I was happy that Isla fit into the peacock costume I made for Faye two years ago. (That one was a little labor intensive, but worth it!)|
So, with minimal sewing, lots of hot glue, and really only a couple hours of working on them, I think we have some great costumes here! The kids even could participate a lot with dying the clothes, gluing the felt pieces on, etc. Let's hope they hold up through one more party and then Halloween night!
