Halloween Crafts and Costume Ideas

11 Oct

Y’all know how I love Halloween, right? I do, I do, I really really doooo! To get in the festive spirit, I thought I’d direct you to a few posts I made last year for your viewing pleasure…

Are you crafty? Suppose you want to be? Here’s a cute idea for a “Some mummy loves you” card I put together. Directions are here. It’s perfect for your hunny or your child!

Maybe you need a super easy and cute costume idea? Look no further, people:

It’s Cindy Lou Who! All you need is some wire, longish hair, a ribbon, a foam cylinder or triangle, and some cute PJ’s (Post here).This was awfully cute and precious, but I decided not to be Cindy Lou Who after this. I was feeling much more bad to the bone so instead I came up with this:

Goodwill is my friend this time of year (Post here).

I’ve been a great many things over the years including a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader:

a California Raisin, the Road Runner, witches, princesses, football players, a genie, and many other things.

I’ve been trick-or-treating for about 25 years now and I’m afraid my time has come to an end (for now anyway). This year our plans are to stay at home (dressed up of course) and hope that all sorts of little munchkins come knocking on our door for candy. I guess I’m growing up as much as I hate to. I can still have fun, though! So here’s my question to you, what should Mrs. K’s clan be for Halloween? Any ideas?

We need some creativity!

P.S.- Stay tuned tomorrow for a post showing my latest creative adventures. I repurposed items found around the house to make a super cute Halloween entry way!

    Indian princess with papoose (Kinley) and Captain J could be a brave of some sort. If you really wanted to go all out you could make a teepee and hand out candy from there. Just wish you were closer and I would get a little door bell ring from a certain family!!!! Also never to old to dress up and enjoy Halloween. It’s all about the fun and chocolate!!!!

      Cute idea! I wish we were home too. Would be fun to trick or treat at Lolly and Pop’s!

    My vote is Bride of Frankenstein 🙂 you hubby could be Frank. And they of course had a baby 😉 Aubrey was BoF one year. It was the best costume 🙂

      Ooh I like this idea! Could be fun to wear my wedding dress again too. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Captain J could be Popeye…you, Olive Oil, and Baby K would be Sweet Pea! 🙂

    That Cindy Lou Who hair is amazing! I was a Who two Halloweens ago, but my hair wasn’t near as awesome! I doubt I’ll dress up this year, since Mike will probably be gone. Oh well!

      Aw :/ it’s no fun when they’re gone on holidays (or reg days)!

    You could be a farmer and Baby K could be one of those CUTE little pea in a pods from Babies R Us. I was at a party a couple of years ago and saw a momma bee, a baby bee, and a daddy who was the beekeeper…thought that one was cute too 🙂

    We need to find costumes too, and there are sooo many cute ones. Gymboree day happens to fall on Halloween this year, so we have to…no excuses. Thinking….

      Sweet ideas. 🙂 I wish we were near a babies r us! I could order online though. I can’t wait to see what you come up with for your clan.
