in pictures . be spooky

bats from 2010, mummies from 2011, glitter ball flower thingies from easter, arrows from cole’s room, and the quiver became the jetpack — this was the year of repurposing 🙂

also, i think i could eat those hot dog mummies every day. yum!

happy happy happy halloween!

    • November 1, 2012 - 11:09 am

      andrea - haha, thanks raquel!! the ‘flowers’ are just styrofoam balls rolled in glitter, with a pipe cleaner wrapped in washi tape! the kids’ costumes were from amazon and ebay but it doesn’t look like any of the listings are still active. if you search on there you should find the same or similar products! (lila’s are adult sized, and cole’s kiddo goggles came with a hat.)ReplyCancel
