Pretty Big Bad Wolf Girl Costume

When my five year old saw the Pottery Barn Halloween catalog, she instantly fell in love with a deer costume. She mistakenly thought it was a wolf at first and that instantly inspired this year’s family Halloween costume theme of Red Riding Hood characters. But instead of being the Big Bad Wolf, we like to think of our wolf as the Pretty Nice Wolf.

This costume was incredibly easy to make. In fact, I was able to get it completely finished in less time than it takes for my 5 year old to go to kindergarten. It is a very close version of the Pottery Barn costume that she fell in love with, but I actually love the extra details we added to our costume a little more! The greatest part about it all is the fact that it is 100% no sew!

Red Riding Hood Family Halloween Costume

It is FINALLY time for my favorite series of posts of the entire year! Our family Halloween costume! I had no idea that this would become such a tradition for me, but I look forward to creating themed costumes for my family each and every year. They still get excited about it too, but I dread the day that I have teenagers who won’t dress up in a theme with me anymore. This year, we decided to be Little Red Riding Hood characters!

The best part about all of these costumes is that they are all NO SEW! I have said it once, I will say it a million times… sewing makes me swear. I know I have been given some talents but sewing just is not one of them! So rest assured that any costumes you see on my site aren’t going to require a sewing machine.  [Read more…]

Yarn and Eyeball Halloween Pumpkins

I love creating my own Halloween decor! I am not a fan of scary Halloween decor and I’m not really a fan of overly cutsey Halloween decor either. It puts me in kind of a weird spot that is hard to find stuff that I really love. Luckily, I love Halloween crafting! I whipped up these yarn and eyeball pumpkins last week and I LOVE them something fierce. They took me no time at all and I just am a little obsessed with how they turned out!

Curls Gone Wild Shirt Design Download

Having daughters that are 5 years apart makes it a little tricky when I want them to wear matching outfits. I have been lucky to find some really cute matching outfits, but sometimes my options are little to non existent. Thankfully, it is really easy to make matching shirts with iron on vinyl! That is exactly what I did when I made these adorable “Curls Gone Wild” shirts for my two curly haired little munchkins.

If you have been here for a while, you already know that we are huge Disney Junior fans. I am thrilled to have Disney Junior sponsoring this post today!

We were instantly hooked and have watched every episode since! I have been trying to do fun activities this summer and thought it would be perfect to make fun paper bag puppets, inspired by our new favorite show!
