This homemade costume for babies entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Tracy, the 'Baby Spider and Mom Web' costume creator:
My son and I are wearing our homemade spider and web costume. I was searching for costume ideas that would allow me to wear my son in an Ergo carrier as he was not walking yet. I found several images online of mothers wearing a similar costume and decided to try making it myself.
I bought a big hairy spider from the dollar store ($6) and a ball of white cotton yarn ($1). I found an old broken black reusable shopping bag and cut off one side of it, leaving the handle/loop on to tie on to the front straps of my baby carrier (almost like an apron). I made the web by tying concentric circles of yarn together then sewing it to the black apron. Then I attached the spider to the apron on top of the web by hand sewing 2 of its legs to the apron. I wore a black top and pants to make the web stand out more. I also put darker clothes on my son to conceal his body and legs, and a cute hat that I had laying around. Then put him in carrier as I normally do and tied the apron with the web and spider attached. Done!
