Nestle Family Virtual Halloween Party: Easy Costumes

One of the best parts of Halloween is choosing your costume! It is the one opportunity a year where you can live out your wildest dreams.  Through the years, I have been a can-can dancer, Wonder Woman,  a baby and even Strawberry Shortcake.  One year, my Mom was brave enough to make me a witch costume and it was probably my favorite!  Sewing is not exactly one of my strong suits, so when looking for a Halloween costume for my daughters, I generally look for something pre-made or something that requires little to no skill.

When my first daughter was only two years old, I decided to make her a bride costume.  I bought her some white tights, a white long tutu, and a white long sleeved shirt (which I bedazzled the word “bride” on the front in case anyone was confused!).  For her veil, I bought a white scrunchy and stitched a white shear scarf on to the back.  It was a very comfortable and warm costume for my little one, and I think it came out pretty darn good!
