KIDS: DIY Chanel purse costume

Craft and Couture turned her little girl into the iconic Chanel purse for Halloween. How stinkin’ cute is that?! There are not any details about how she made it on her blog, but I assume she sewed and quilted the costume. I love how she even added the Chanel double C logo for the clasp!

KIDS: DIY Leprechaun costume

Raising Arizona Kids shared this awesome DIY leprechaun costume made by Paging Supermoms. I love that this DIY leprechaun costume for lots of reasons. 1: It’s made out of construction paper, something most of us already have on hand! 2: There are free printables to ensure that you get the shape of the hat and the beard just right! Not to mention it is easy enough for kids to make or at least help make!

How fun are these DIY leprechaun beards in honor of St. Patricks Day?! French knots whipped these up with her boys with just a pipe cleaner and orange string! The fun hat came from the Dollar Store! I love that this costume was simple enough for her boys to make themselves!

KIDS: DIY turkey costume

Turkey day is fast approaching and this may just be the cutest stuffed turkey I’ve ever seen!  Tara said her two year old son came up with the idea to be a turkey so she then came up with a simple and inexpensive DIY turkey costume to make for him using multiple colors of felt and cardboard.  A little bit of sewing and glueing later and you’ve got yourself one cute little Thanksgiving turkey.
