DIY Halloween Costumes

If you know my Mom, you know that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. If there is a project, she's pretty much always figuring out how to make it happen. I remember her throwing me extremely creative birthday parties as a child, and always making my Halloween costumes. I'm sure my memory may be wrong, but I do put a certain amount of pressure that I should make costumes. (PS, this year I'm probably going to buy them...)

But when my son Cole started saying he wanted to be an "Excavator" for Halloween, I knew I was pretty much going to have to make it. So, in 2013, that's what I my surprise, once his brother saw the costume, HE wanted to be a crane. So I made TWO costumes. 

The following year, they both insisted on wearing the same costumes, so 37 weeks pregnant, I decided to "hit the easy button" and pulled the Crane and Scooper out of the attic. I did do some minor glue updates, but for the most part they were in great shape. 

In the spirit of sharing, I feel bad having posted about both 2013 and 2015, so here's the second go of the Crane and Scooper: 

Not bad, right?!
