KIDS: Handmade zebra costume

This is a no sew zebra costume, y’all! Baby Gizmo crafted this awesome handmade zebra costume out of a black hooded sweatshirt, sweatpants, duck tape, and craft foam. I think it would be super cute to have the fam dress up as the zoo, you could have a zebra, lion, tiger, panda and an elephant! Cute!

HOUSE: Tree eyeballs

Costumes for your house and yard are so fun for Halloween! Here’s a really easy way to spook up your trees. Just add giant white balloons to your trees. Draw black pupils on the white balloons with a sharpie marker and a smaller white dot with card stock. (You can find giant balloons on Amazon!)

COUPLES: I love Lucy costumes

Lovely indeed whipped up these Ricky and Lucy costumes from I Love Lucy! The suit and tie for Ricky is a must and Lucy must have the iconic hairstyle, apron, red lip stick, and those perfectly arched eyebrows! Then, just craft up a heart sign that says, “I Love Lucy”, just in case the party goers are still a little confused.

HOUSE: Cookie monster costume

It’s a Halloween costume for your garage!  If you’re house is blue then this is a super awesome idea… but I think the cookie monster effect would still be pretty awesome on any colored house and garage!  Just use poster board for the eyes and you could use chalk instead of paint to make the brown cookie. That way the cookie is not permanent! Then use felt for the chocolate chips!
