Hanging with my gnomies!
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Michele, the 'Gnomes on Toadstools' costume creator:
We always do a family themed costume. Our girls, Gracie & Addie, always love this! We decided to be gnomes this year because we had a lot of the items on hand. We used a red fitted twin sheet split in half for the top of each mushrooms. We added white felt circles on top and another white sheet split in half for the skirts under the mushroom. Then we filled tights for the legs and sewed some slippers on them. To "poof" the skirt we added two pool noodles duct taped together and they tucked up under the elastic on the red fitted sheets. We travel from place to place by car and all we had to do was add the noodle hoop at each stop when we got out of the vehicle. Super efficient when you are searching for loads of candy!! The hats were $1santa hats with Pom poms removed and brims tucked underneath. The removed Pom poms turned into daddy's beard. Belts, and shirts were on hand. Total cost for 4 costumes was about $30. Temperatures were in the 30s here so we had to layer. Pretty good considering we got TONS of compliments and lots of candy!!
