COUPLES: DIY Dorothy and Scarecrow costumes

Chels from Buy me Love, crafted up these fun Wizard of Oz inspired costumes and even created a yellow brick road scene in the trunk of her car! Pretty dang cute, huh?! She said, “I made the hub’s costume from sweats, raffia and elastic. I sewed the hat with fleece scraps, and painted his face.” The Dorothy costume dress was bought and she added lace to the hem for length.  The yellow brick road and rainbow trunk scene was made from papers, glitter glues, fake poppies, paint, and a plastic tablecloth.

KIDS: DIY toilet costume

I bet you’ve never seen a DIY toilet costume before?! Mother and son created this costume together with white duck tape, an aluminum foil handle on a card board box, and a fresh new, foam toilet seat from their local home improvement store. I also love that the candy bag is doing double duty! The white trash bag is attached under the toilet seat rim so that the candy givers can open the lid and allow the candy to fall right into the bag, ha! The bag doubles to camouflage the boy’s lower body as a toilet! Perfect!

COUPLES: Handmade Peas and Carrots Costume

This is one cute (and yummy!) couple costume! Christine and her significant other hand made peas and carrots costumes. How awesome is that! The leafy green part of the carrot is made out of felt, bendy straws and the top of a plastic drink bottle. Genius, if you ask me! The body of both costumes are made out of felt. The USDA organic labels were made out of printable fabric sheets and hot glued on the felt costumes. Adorable!
