I have to admit that it is a really cool thing when your own child comes up with these really neat and unique ideas. For those of you following my blog, you’ll know that this thingsthatwedo.com mom made a very cool and snazzy tree costume for her child last Halloween. Well, this year, after much conversation and thought, my child has decided that she will be a bouquet of flowers OR a flower garden OR a flower girl. I’m fine with whatever she decides since the flower costume will look the same no matter what. You see, it’s all a play on words with some minor adjustments
So, exactly what am I doing you ask? Well, she suggested that we use an old t-shirt as the backdrop for the costume. We then took a trip to the big dollar store and purchased a bunch of synthetic flowers with some greenery that I sewed on to the t-shirt. The final costume is amazing with dangling stems made from remnants of last year’s green fabric!
Now that she’s a year older, my wee child is also helping to craft out her Halloween costume. She’s helped to do some sewing and she certainly helped to remove the synthetic flowers from their fake plastic stems.
The costume’s not completely done yet but we’re getting there, one stitch at a time! What will your child be for Halloween?
