Last year for Halloween, my girls were Snow White and a Bumblebee.
And it was adorable. See for yourself:
But I wanted them to have matching candy holders for each of their costumes.
I wasn’t finding what I wanted online or anywhere for that matter.
So I made them myself.
When I was younger, we just used good ol’ pillowcases for Trick-or-Treating.
1) There’s no way my kids can carry a big pillowcase
2) They don’t need that much candy
So I went to Wal-Mart and bought two regular orange Jack-O-lantern pumpkins. Then, I got brown packing tape and some red duct tape.
When I got home, I wrapped each pumpkin in it’s respective tape until the orange and the faces were no longer visible.
For Emma’s, I did an apple since she was Snow White and finished it off with some green ribbon wrapped around the handle.
For Addie’s, my bumblebee, I took black permanent marker and wrote “HUNNY” on it (like Pooh).
All in all, the project probably took me a day to complete (during nap time and after bedtime)
And my kids had one-of-a-kind Halloween treat bags.
This year, we are going as the Sanderson sisters (from Hocus Pocus) so they will have little cauldrons as their treat bags.
More on our costumes and those in a later post!
