Halloween: DIY Costume Contest!


Since last year’s DIY Halloween Costume Contest was such a great success, I thought I’d hold another one this year! (Plus, when I asked you guys if I should do the contest on my Facebook page a few days ago. everyone said yes!)

Last year, we had the pleasure of learning how to make a Rock, Paper, Scissors costume (Genius!), a sweet Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz costume, a pretty peacock costume, and one of my favorites, a Carrie Bradshaw costume. You guys were so creative so I am very excited to see what you come up with this year!
