Easy Halloween Costume
I'm a day late, but this was such a fun craft, I had to post about it. Who knows, it may come handy next year for you all. Bear and I wanted to be comfortable and still be in costume so Bear, Muse, and I dressed up as pumpkins. It was fast, fun, and most importantly comfortable. All you need are a couple of T-shirts and some fabric paints. We were able to get all of our supplies at the craft store fairly inexpensively. The best part is that the yellow paint is glow in the dark. Bear's shirt was a techno jack o'lantern, Jake would not wear a pumpkin, and the police got a good laugh when they saw me on the sidewalk putting Muse in her 'matching' costume as they drove by. It took about 4 hours for them to dry (we left ours to dry over night). T-shirts are wonderfully comfortable costumes. The kids seemed to get a kick out of Bear's glowing techno pumpkin and we were comfortable all night long. Happy Halloween from the pumpkin patch family ;) Wherever you are Have fun!
