The simplicity of getting scribbley! Make your own Halloween Costumes!!
I’m sure you’ve been busy decorating your homes and thinking about Halloween costumes! This past weekend, I was at an anniversary party for a local shop that makes handcrafted clothing and accessory items when I came across this:
As I walked up to the building, the people coming out wearing these unique little crowns. The group walking out seemed united and they certainly looked like they were having fun. This fun seemed amplified as I walked through the doors- EVERYONE was wearing these crowns for what they called, The Queen of Hearts party! As I looked, around both kids and adults seemed to be having a great time. It was so interesting how for the adults, when wearing these crowns they seemed to loose their inhibitions and become as innocent, silly and playful as the children. Everyone was having a good time and this simple homemade craft seemed to be the instigator of it all.
Of course, this immediately got me thinking about Halloween and Halloween costumes. What was great about this craft was that it was made from things that you can buy at the 99¢: Cardboard, plastic headbands, floral wire and gold spray paint. With over a hundred people wearing these crowns, I would be surprised if they spent more than $20 making all of these party favors.
I thought this would be a great start for a fun Halloween costume for your kids. Using the crown for inspiration, talk to your kids about what they could dress up as using this crown…a princess, a fairy, Glenda the good witch! From there, get crafty with your kids. I was thinking, an easy wand could be made out of taping a few straws together, cutting out a star from cardboard and using a few pieces of ribbon for streamers…simple, easy and sure to be a fun costume accessory!
