Quit while your a Head
|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Dawn, the 'Always use your Head' costume creator:
Honestly I (mom) just wanted some cheese balls when I was in Sams club and of course the container is huge. I was laughing at how big the container was and my daughter said, "mom you could fit your head in here"..I thought now why would you put your head in a cheese ball container and then my ADD kicked in...The cheese balls got dumped in a bag and the costume began. My daughters reaction was priceless....my daughter-"mom, did you take your meds today" ME- "yes I took my meds, now come here and put your head in this jar"
Cheese ball container from Sams club
Lots of plastic bags
safety pins (never buy them from the dollar store just a "heads" up)
Trench Coat from goodwill 9.99 (I know right, couldn't get my "head" around paying 10 bucks for an out of date trench coat) but trench coats are sometimes good for spicing up marriage..just saying!
A child willing to put their head in a container!
You need to use your "head" on this one so stick with me....Fill backpack wit plastic bags and put on.... Put trench coat on over back pack and button it behind the child's head.. t...stuff the shoulders and arms with bags.... use the cheese ball container and cut out the back and bottom...tape, glue, or sew the stuffed glove hands to the jar to make it look like you are holding the head....10.00 in supplies for this awesome costume that is a "HEAD" above the rest!
