Cute Scarecrow Baby Costume
Chanler Kruz - the Crow Scarin' Cutie
|Costume type:||Costumes for Babies|
This homemade costume for babies entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Megan, the 'Scarecrow' costume creator:
This is my son Chanler. He is dressed as a scarecrow for his 2nd Halloween. I was determined to make his costume this year, as I was not impressed with any in the store. They are all the same and not real creative.
I want him to look back on all his Halloween costumes and realize he wasn't the typical and popular character on the Disney channel. However I want this costume to scream Halloween/Fall.
Being our favorite time of year is Halloween and the fall season, my husband and I couldn't think of anything better than dressing him up as a scarecrow. And definitely not the out-done Wizard of Oz scarecrow, but a homemade, cute as pie, scarecrow.
We bought everything and made it ourselves. We bought overalls and brown shoes from the goodwill. 2 yards of burlap, left over from our rustic wedding, to use to make patches and his hat. We bought raffia and the perfect plaid shirt from Wally-world, and broke out the glue gun!
The overalls were a piece of cake...the hat?!... Let's just say after the 4th try, we settled for what we had and stuck with that! And it's actually my favorite part of his costume!
To complete the look, we had to add a little of moms brown lipstick (stolen from grandmas back in the 90's) to draw up a perfect little brown scarecrow nose!
