2013 Dreaming of Red and the Wolf


Did everyone have fun trick or treating? I know we did! I’ve been dreaming of these costumes for months. Mycah didn’t agree to it until just last week and at 1:35 AM today, I finally finished. I can’t take credit for inventing these costumes. Like many things I do, I found them on Pinterst. You can check out my Homemade Halloween Pinterest board for more details. I will say I did not read the tutorials, I only used the pictures for reference. So without further ado here are my babies.

I love making my kids their costumes. I feel like it’s a special memory that we will always have. I also like that because I made them with hooded sweatshirts they were warm despite the cold. You don’t have to sew to do this for your kids. In fact I did all of this with scissors and a hot glue gun. You could say that store-bought is cheaper but the truth is, Mycah’s wolf costume was $20 but only because I bought the pants as well (because he can wear them for more than Halloween). Harper’s, which was more complicated to make, still only cost me $15. I think $35 for 2 little kid costumes is not that bad!

This is my last post of the 31 day challenge. So thanks for hanging in there. I will definitely keep blogging, just not at this punishing rate. I am hope to make it at least twice a week. Again thank you! If you’re new to this blog, welcome! If you checked me out from my link on the Nesting Place, I really appreciate your visit! Please comment, I would love the feedback.
