DIY Halloween costumes

We thought we'd make our own costumes for Halloween this year. For Alex, he requested a skeleton so I used a white t-shirt crayon to sketch one on a black t-shirt. He'll wear this t-shirt with some skeleton print pants made by his talented grandma.

For Jasmine who doesn't like anything scary, we decided she could dress as a "treat" while she wanders the neighbourhood chanting "trick or treat". We settled on a packet of Smarties. We used pencils and cardboard to create her outfit. I drew the tricky bits and Jasmine did the colouring.

In order to make the blue background, we used pencil shavings and grated pencil lead and smudged them with our hands.

  1. I am sure the twins will be very successful trick or treating with these awesome costumes. Can't wait to see the pictures.
