Boo! Halloween is almost here! It’s the second year we’re suck at home with nowhere to go, but that doesn’t mean we’re letting the pandemic cancel the festivities. We still want in on the treats. We still want in on the fun.
This year, we’re making it fashionable! Zoë wanted to look colorful, pretty, and fab, so we made sure to get her all dolled up in a DIY Paper Doll Costume.
Halloween came and went by so fast this year! The lingering pandemic meant that there were no physical trick-or-treats for us, but thankfully, we still had our share of virtual spooks and goodies. Not only did we get some tasty loot, we felt like absolute winners for scoring the most sought after plant in town! No horror stories of overpriced plants here, just our very own pot of monstera deliciosa! The cost of this baby? Priceless!
Halloween’s over, but we’re still gaga over Zoë’s costume this year. When you have a daughter who’s determined to wear something unique every year (she was an ice cream cone last year, a gumball machine the previous year, and a cupcake the year prior), you can bet she will request for another DIY creation.
This year, she wanted to be a claw machine. The truth? It was another project this DIY-loving momma took on with excitement.
Zoë is that girl who comes up with wild costume ideas. I, on the other hand, am that mother who’s crazy enough to go along with it. Last Halloween, she wanted to be a cupcake. This year, to keep up with the sweet treat tradition, she asked to be a gumball machine.
Come check out how I made this no-sew gumball machine costume, guaranteed to make the cutest, most colorful little outfit that’s perfect for some Halloween dress-up fun. No tricks, just treats; I promise that it’ll be quick and easy. Your little ones will be ready for all the fun in no time!
When your stubborn little girl insists on being a dessert for Halloween, you do what every crazy mother does– DIY everything by hand, of course! With a bit of browsing on Pinterest to get a few costume ideas, I finally came up with my own sweet treat, perfect enough for my cupcake-loving little girl!
