Halloween costume ideas for the busy mom.

When I was growing up, my mom made all of our costume.  She was excellent at cutting and sewing and designing patterns.  I went to school at a time where home ec classes were rampant.  I learned all of that-cutting, sewing etc.  Do I use it?  Nope!  I own a sewing machine but lack the time it takes to be good at it.

So- not going to lie- I typically buy my kids costumes!

Here are some ideas for EASY PEASY homemade costumes AND some deals for buying them.

Easy peasy homemade:

The baby gumball machine: from the costume-works website

Also from the costume-works site:  box of friends/ crayons! I think this would be easy!

The Make It Love It site has directions for this fun Lumberjack costume.  Other than the beard and axe the rest is just clothing… so fun!
