Easy DIY Costumes for the Non-Crafty Parent

Well lookie there. Halloween is three weeks away and you don't have a costume for your kiddo yet. Maybe you don't want to spend big bucks on a store-bought costume that will last 2 hours... but you don't like crafting, so the idea of a DIY costume makes want to crawl under your bed and hide. 

No worries, mama. There is a secret third option.

DIY without the "D." Or maybe we change the "D" from "do" to "design." I don't know... whatever.

I'm a huge fan of things that can be used again and again. These costumes were put together using products that your daughter will likely wear over and over. Add the tutus and skirts to her dress up box and use the legwarmers all fall and winter long.

Get creative (if that's your thing) or just copy our ideas. We made a sock monkey, chick, mouse, and frog. Just pair a tutu or pettiskirt with a pettiromper (or a shirt if she's outgrown our pettirompers or you live in a cold state). Add a hat and some coordinating legwarmers. Cute, comfortable, durable, AFFORDABLE!

Don't forget about our Photo Contest each month! If you use our products, snap a picture and send it to us!!
