  1. Those are absolutely adorable. Kids are just the cutest.

  2. These look cute, I loved making costumes when my kids were younger.

  3. Aww, those are very cute!

  4. Those are incredibly cute!

  5. I love the imagination and creation that goes into homemade costumes. They’re usually not as hard to make as some realize.

  6. Very cute! I love the sun. I used to make my son’s costumes every year…and then I had 3 more kids and I ran out of time, lol.

  7. They are so cute – but I’ll but mine. I made my son’s first one 10 years ago, but that’s about it!

  8. Oh I love the bubble bath one. To cute!!

  9. I love homemade costumes. The weather is not always the best and you can dress your little one up while keeping them warm. I like the octopus one 🙂

  10. The bathtub is absolutely adorable!! Too bad my 2 year old would never sit still long enough for people to see it LOL

  11. I love the sun! I wanted to make my kid’s costume’s but they want to be the “new” Batman and Robin, not the kind I can make, lol.

  12. Cute! I have a costume for my little dude for this year but some of those were SO cute, I may have to make one next year!

  13. how cute I just love it they don’t look tooo difficult and they looks so much fun too

  14. The bathtub idea is awesome! I always buy costumes, but my husband talks about how they made their own growing up. He’s 1 of 5, so it would have been expensive to buy for all 5 kids!

  15. Congratulations!

    I’m a great fan of DIY projects and found your site most interesting with all its cute ideas for Halloween costumes. Being able to create something from nothing is always such a rewarding experience. My problem is that by the time I’ve selected a project, I run out of time and have to resort to buying something anyway. The craft books for Halloween at have helped tremendously in that I can start early searching for ideas … many of which I see reflected here in your blog. Yes, I plan to post several of your awesome pretties to Pinterest where other folks can benefit from them. Thanks for allowing that.
